This flexi disc was advertising for GASAG, the main gas company in Berlin that has been operating for 160 years.
The rock´n´roll instrumental Sputnik Fly appears on three different advertisement records that I`m going to post here. There is no group or orchestra name given, but it credits a Jo Fischer as having written the song. I couldn´t find any information at all about Jo Fischer on the Internet.
The GASAG slogan on this record is “Modern like the times we live in”, but Sputnik Fly sounds more like a left-over from the early 60`s. Oh well, the German public was a lot slower back then…
The song is great though. Rock´n´Roll for the whole family!
This is actually the weakest record of the batch, so keep scrolling further down. It`s so lame, that I didn`t even bother to record the full thing. Believe me it is bad. These are kinda the best songs:
KLINGENDE POST NR.10, Vico Torriani, Die drei Peheiros, 1958
There are some great records advertised on the little postcard that came with this package though: Janis Martin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Larry Williams. Now those records would be worth my time and yours! But who am I kidding, I`m just a old garbage-picker…
