SUSI DORÉE, Ich geh ohne, 1964

alle-maedchen-frontalle-maedchen-backalle-maedchen-labelalle-maedchen-label-2Susi Dorée is a local Berlin singer who , together with  the Blue Cellar Combo, was a staple at the famous Berlin Riverboat, one of the biggest European dance clubs in the early to mid 60´s.

She also recorded the first German cover version of Little Eva´s Locomotion, Schokoladeneis, for  CBS. In the mid-60´Susi Dorée did a lot of studio work, recording cover versions of hit records for  German budget labels tip and Baccarola.

(from Billboard magazine Jan.16, 1965)

Ich geh ohne (I´m going without), recorded for the local independent  Monopol label and written by Will Meisel, is another tongue-in-cheek take on the Minikini/No Bikini fad of 1964 (that I´ve posted here, here and here) suggesting she´s going “without a bra”.

It turns out that Susi´s not going out of the house without her “boyfriend Jack”…

  4. Great blog!
    Does anyone know where I can find German lyrics to Hans Bradtke’s “Calcutta?” I play piano music with my Mom, who has dementia (but she can still play melodies on the piano.) We sing along to what we play, and I thought it would be fun to do some songs in their original languages.

    Ich suche auch Musik (piano sheet music) feur “Veronika Der Lenz Ist Da” von Walter Jurmann (1930) und “Ich Bin Die Fesche Lola” von Friedrich Hollander (1930.)

    Is there a good place to find piano sheet music for German Cabaret Music?

    Thanks for your help!

    Bei mir um die Ecke in Berlin, Kreuzberg ist ein Notenfachgeschäft: NIK-Noten
    Vielleicht können die weiterhelfen.

    Vielen Dank, mischalke!
    Das NIK-Noten Link ist perfekt!
    Leider kann man hier in den US kein Berlinkabarett Musik finden…
    wenigstens nichts in Albuquerque. :)
