DIE TRAVELLERS, Ich war der Putzer vom Kaiser, 1969

It gets worse and worse and I know you all skipped this week´s posts already. The Travellers recorded many more 45´s and Lp´s into the 70´s, some of the later period ones having full nude covers.putzer

This is a cover-version of Whistling Jack Smith´s I was Kaiser Bill´s Batman with added lyrics. korsett

Det Korsett (The Corset) is an original by the Travellers sung in Berlin dialect.

DIE 3 TRAVELLERS, Ja, Kleider machen Leute, 1962

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.

Okay, maybe not this song…
