This advertising-record was celebrating 125 years of the Berlin clothing-industry in 1962. It was co-written and released on Will Meisel´s own Berlin-based Metropol label. This is the previous style the 3 Travellers played in and that mainly stood the test of time.
Tonight Troy McClure is playing some great Exotica, Surf music and Rock`n´Roll on his weekly radio show Peel Slowly and See on WVEW 107.7 FM Brattleboro Community Radio, between 8 to 9 pm Eastern time, that´s 2 in the morning in Germany. He promised to play a song he found on this blog. You can listen online here
My name is Andreas Michalke. I´m a cartoonist from Berlin, Germany and I like collecting records. Most of the records I find in thrift stores or at flea markets here in Berlin. I like a lot of music but I thought I`d focus on odd German records. Preferably with cartoon covers.
All my scans are high-resolution. If you double-click on them they will get much bigger.
1. I will not use material, that is already available in digital format elsewhere.
2.The artists I present are either anonymous or pseudonymous or dead or no longer active.
3. I feel that if nobody has cared to reissue a record in 50 years, it is fair to present it.
Note: Please don´t ask for re-ups. I don´t have time for that. What´s gone is gone.
