HEINRICH RIETHMÜLLER, Grüne Welle, 1959

In the 1970s Heinrich Riethmüller (1921-2006) got to be known by millions of Germans when he appeared regularly on television in the Dalli Dalli quiz show. Without noticing  German kids were also familiar with Riethmüller because he was responsible for directing many  German soundtracks and voiceovers of Disney films.

As indicated on the back of the sleeve Heinrich Riethmüller recorded at least seven more 45s for the Austrian Amadeo label. He can be heard playing the electric piano on these two automobile related songs: Grüne Welle (A lucky streak of being given the green light at crossings) and Romanze für 12PS (PS = horsepower, so I guess it´s veeeery slow romance).

    “12 PS! refers to the so-called “Steuer-PS”: http://tinyurl.com/6cawdns

    A 12-horsepower car would in fact have been a quite large one, by European standards at least!

    `grüne welle` must be some kind of happiness in life
