WERNER HASS, Es gibt nur ein Hotel Berlin in Berlin, 1976Posted: April 2, 2010
A record that was given to visitors of the Hotel Berlin. The song boasts how “There is only one Hotel Berlin in Berlin“, but there doesn´t seem to be anything remarkable about this bland concrete building. I guess the hotel really needed the advertisement.
Today it´s gone, at least I couldn´t find it. The cartoon on the back of the sleeve, illustrating the fitness-fashion of the 70´s, was again done by Ane.
Werner Hass was a successful East-German singer who started recording together with his sister Ilse in the late 40´s. He recorded an early German version of Shake Rattle and Roll (Simsalabim), in 1956 but after getting banned from East-German stages in 1958 he immigrated to West-Germany and continued his career.
Werner Hass did another advertisement record that I posted here. The song Trimmen is about a guy who refuses to do sports and gets drunk instead. Here´s a fitness related clip:
