DIE TRAVELLERS, Was trägt der Schotte unterm Rock?, 1967

I know, most of this week´s posts are in very bad taste, but this music is from Berlin, has mostly been forgotten,  is funny and the records have cartoon sleeves. Of course I love it!

Of The 3  Travellers Mischa Andrejew, Fred Oldörp and Eddie Rothé, only Oldörp was from Berlin, but they made a point of recording many songs dedicated to the city. Most of The 3 Travellers swinging stuff  from the late 40´s and 50´s has been re-issued many times over the years whereas their later material, that they recorded as only the Travellers in the late 60´s and 70´s, has not.

By then they had developed into a German version of  Homer & Jethro who jumped onto the sex-wave of the late 60´s. Though highly successful at the time, these parodies of hit-songs only had a limited appeal. Today The Travellers seem to have run their course.

Was trägt der Schotte unterm Rock? ( What does the Scotsman wear under his skirt?) is a parody-version of Rock around the Clock and Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Klärchens neuer Strand-Bikini is… guess what?
