JO FISCHER, Sputnik Fly, 1968Posted: April 2, 2009
This flexi disc was advertising for GASAG, the main gas company in Berlin that has been operating for 160 years.
The rock´n´roll instrumental Sputnik Fly appears on three different advertisement records that I`m going to post here. There is no group or orchestra name given, but it credits a Jo Fischer as having written the song. I couldn´t find any information at all about Jo Fischer on the Internet.
The GASAG slogan on this record is “Modern like the times we live in”, but Sputnik Fly sounds more like a left-over from the early 60`s. Oh well, the German public was a lot slower back then…
The song is great though. Rock´n´Roll for the whole family!
