ORCHESTER SCHWARZ-WEISS, Kleines Haus am Wald, 1963Posted: January 30, 2008
This postcard record was a “Hit” by East German standards when this came out in 1963, two years after the Berlin wall was built. The card was sent August 20. 1964 from somebody on holidays in the Sächsische Schweiz, a popular East German holiday area in Saxony. Sorry, but although I am curious, I can`t make out much of the old fashioned handwriting. What a sweet thing it was to send a song along with your letter. I would love to send somebody a postcard with let`s say, a Christina Aguilera song on it. Attaching an MP3 to an e-mail just isn`t the same.
In the text below it says that, following the demand of the youth, they built a Big-Beat band (East-European speak for Beat) from members of the orchestra. Despite this hopeless endeavour this song has some nice guitar breaks.
