WERNER MÜLLER UND SEIN ORCHESTER, Guitar Boogie Shuffle, 1960Posted: February 4, 2009
My Internet at home is kaputt and I`m writing this on the computer at the Jungle World office, the paper that is publishing my comic-strip BIGBEATLAND (Thank you, comrades!). I hope our Internet will be fixed quickly, but I`m afraid that the posts will be rather short this week.
As promised last week here are some records by Werner Müller. In the early 60`s Werner Müller was one of the most well-known German orchestra leaders.
Werner Müller was born in Berlin in 1920 and in 1948 he started the RIAS-Tanzorchester. RIAS (Radio im amerikanischen Sektor – Radio in the American Sector) was a radio station in the American Sector of Berlin (1946 to 1993). He backed many German pop-singers and recorded music of a wide variety. I will focus mainly on some of his rockin`orchestra stuff that somehow has never been re-released.
