05.03.2013 ::: Release 4 CD Box
16 years they played a significant part in the successes of Dieter Bohlen: Their contribution was
the typical vocal sound of Modern Talking and Blue System.
With their voices and their musical know-how they decisively shaped the sound of this epoch!
With the resolution of Modern Talking came to an end for the fans.
It is thanks to the fans, that the project Systems In Blue was launched in 2003. The sound should
continue to live.
At the end of the production of the second album Out Of The Blue, the singer Rolf Köhler died
unexpectedly. This tragic incident ended a newly started, promising development of this group. In
this 4CD box are once again all the hits of the band, including some karaoke versions and remixes.
26.06.2012 ::: New CD release from SIB
With the dissolution of Modern Talking and the end of Blue System, an era came to an end for
the fans. The initiative of Rolf Köhler, Detlef Wiedeke and Michael Scholz, who already at the o.g.
Projects for the unique falset choir, and especially Thomas Widrat is responsible for the fact that
in 2003 the project SYSTEMS IN BLUE was launched. The sound should continue to live.
After the two highly successful singles "Magic Mystery" (2003) and "Winner" (2004), the first
album "Point Of No Return" was released in 2005 with the release of the same name. In 2007,
the production of the second album "Out Of The Blue" will be released. On March 22, 2008,
Leadsänger Rolf Köhler will not be able to see it. He died on September 16, 2007 as a result of a
stroke. This is followed by the mix albums "Heaven And Hell" (2009) and "The Big Blue Megamix"
(2010) and finally the Best Of album "Symphony In Blue" on 13 May 2011.
In addition to his own productions, Rolf, Micha and Detlef also provided the striking choir for
some of Mark Ashley and Patty Ryan's songs, which can also be found on this album. On 24 May
2011, Rolf Köhler would have turned 60. On this occasion there are some songs with Rolf as
Leadsänger, which has not yet been released, as well as a brand new mix version of "Shangri-La"

CD will be available on Tuesday 19th of February 2008
The radio edit of this song had already its public debut during a live performance in Burow
Germany in September 2007. The sudden death of Rolf Köhler caused the decision to delay the
issue of the maxi single to February 2008.
The instrumental version is alike the radio edit without lead vocals and choir. The maxi is not
only twice as long, but new mixed and enriched with special effects. It sounds more powerful
This release is taken from the forthcoming album "OUT OF THE BLUE" to be published in April
2008. You may be curious - please look forward to another eleven sensational tracks!
We say thanks to all our friends and fans worldwide for their faith and enthusiasm. Please go
and get our records legally in your local market or Internet shop - do not be satisfied with free
of charge downloads. This is unrespectfully!
A few words in terms of the "chart entry": Placement in the German charts is not just about
the pure number of items, but also a sale "in the geographical latitude". That is why it is very
important that you do not go the easiest way of ordering via an Internet mailbox, but rather
buy our plates directly in the shops of your city. We are often told that our CDs are not
available on the release date. This is, however, due to the behavior of the buyers of the
department store chains. The order for their assortment, of course, only products, of which
they are convinced that they also sell off. First and foremost artists who have a high degree of
recognition or newcomers who have a massive promotional campaign like newspaper, radio
and TV. Unfortunately, we lack the platform and the resources. Please go to the shops and
order your very own copy of our new single. We are listed everywhere!
If enough people in Germany do this on this way, then in the head office also notice that at SIB
"something jerks"! And the stores are ready to order their own sound recordings, and put them
on the shelf.

16.09.2007 ::: Rolf Köhler has died
Rolf Köhler died on Sunday, 16.09.2007 in the early evening. We are telegraphed and
stunned: Our friend Rolf is dead! Neither his positive energy nor his amiability could save his
life. A severe stroke hit him in the middle of work on Thursday afternoon. After three days of
fighting in AK Altona, he left us forever. We have lost our best friend too early: a great man
and musician. The voice that inspired millions of people has fallen silent. He did not
experience the recognition of his great musical performance during his lifetime. But countless
people have loved him and appreciated his friendship. We thank all friends and acquaintances
for the caring help and moral support in the past days. We are very sad ... and think of those
who loved him.
