Die vier großen Schlager, tip EP 63-1171Posted: May 29, 2008
To fit in the Lupo Modern time frame I´m posting these three EPs published by German budget labels “Tip” and “Tempo”. These variety labels published everything from folklore, classical, jazz, pop to beat music. Of course played by no name artists but the records sold for half the price of the real thing. The four big hits (“Die vier großen Schlager”) of 1966 were “Cadillac” by the Renegades, “Let`s Go (Hully Gully)” by Sir Henry and his Butlers, “Wooly Bully” by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs and “Don`t Ha Ha” by Casey Jones and the Governors. Here they are all covered by Tony Tornado(!) and the Ravers. There is probably more to know about Tony Tornado´s true identity but right now I don`t feel like investigating.
