DIE LOTHAR NAKAT BOYS, Beatnik Fly

B-33-frontB-33-backB-33-2B-33-1More Blockflöten-Rock. Here´s  one more version of  a rock´n´roll instrumental by Johnny and the Hurricanes that uses a recorder to simulate  the band´s trademark Hammond Chord organ, played by Paul Tesluk. Lothar Nakat´s arrangement of the Hurricanes 1960 hit Beatnik Fly was initially released by the small indie Starlet. Apparently Starlet regularly licensed Nakat´s recordings to a couple of dozen other budget labels like, in this case, Deutscher Schallplattenclub, out of Stuttgart,  a record club like Bertelsmann, Opera and Jazztone,

Lothar Nakat´s happy “recorder rock”-version of Beatnik Fly might not sound as dangerous as the original, but I think  it´s really sweet! It´s a shame that it has not been reissued in more than 50 years.
