Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins

This is the most famous song about the Reeperbahn, the main road that leads through Hamburg´s red light district St. Pauli , where a lot of stripteasing was going on at the time of the release of this flexible postcard circa late 50´s.

One of the pictures shows the Grosse Freiheit, the street where the famous Star Club was located. I don´t think it was  opened yet at the time when this photo was taken but you can see a little star on the left side of the street advertising for the old Stern-Kino, the Star Cinema, that later became the Star Club.

This is not Hans Albers singing but an unknown artist. Too bad that the record is not in good shape…

    One of my favorite genres is striptease, because in America it is like the dark side, what nobody wants to talk about. Whenever people cover something it only makes it more fascinating to see. My dad told me funny stories about strippers from his young single days, but most Americans of his generation acted like it simply didn’t exist. It was a form of deletion, of dishonesty. Thank you for this— Fantastich.
