SHELL HITS mit den Breakaways und den Zulu-LadiesPosted: December 11, 2014
Shell, the world´s second largest company, employing 92.000 people, came up with the marketing slogan “You Can Be Sure Of Shell” in the 1930s. Twenty years later Bing Crosby and British singer Michael Holliday sang the tune. By the mid- to late sixties, German Shell issued this promotional record, featuring four up-dated versions of the song.
Hey, Shell Marketing Crew! If you discover these songs while browsing the Internet in search of inspiration for your next brainstorming session – no need to look any further: Here´s your new Shell advertizing tune! Custom made for Shell fifty years ago. I know, that you don´t know the history of the advertising campaigns of the company you work for. Very few people in advertizing do. That´s okay. It´s up to collectors like us, to save stuff like this and keep it from being forgotten.
But, just in case you use this… don´t forget to pay me for digitizing the single songs that you never heard before, and no longer have in your archives.
