HANS DER SACHSE, Striptease Paula, 1968

“Paul the Saxon” is singing sleazy  songs in an awful fake saxon dialect. Striptease Paula is simply describing the stripteasing Paula. The b-side Wunschtraum eines Halbstarken ( A Teenagers Pipe Dream) is equally sleazy.

Sounds pretty bad, so why have I collected three versions of this record? Because I am a collector and sometimes I collect out of  habit, like, oh, I´ve got one of these, so I see  another version of  it in a thrift store and I buy it and then I´ll find a third version and I just can´t let it pass either and besides that these are pretty odd privately pressed German adult records.

They are just not good records…

This red label pressing seems to be the same guy as Hans der Sachse but in a previous recording. But who knows…

These pressings have the titles stamped onto the white labels. Sounds like yet another version. Wunschtraum is pretty scratched up…

TONY MURENA ET SON ORCHESTRE MUSETTE, Striptease Tango, 1962

My girlfriend dragged me to a Tango class once but we both didn´t really get into the music and the moves too much. I love dancing though,  it was just the wrong dance.

Maybe we should have joined a Striptease class?

I don´t know anything about the artists behind this French Tango EP and bought it for the sleeve obviously. The music is regular Tango music as far as I can tell and I guess you can do both the tango and a striptease to the Striptease Tango…

BALD BILL UND SEINE TROCADEROS, Twist auf der G-Seite, 1966

I usually only post 45´s here because the sleeves fit much better on the scanner and there are fewer songs to record plus I just love the format. But for this week´s theme this was a perfect album. This is the German Sumerset release of this classic American striptease album by “Bald” Bill Hagan and his Trocaderons. I only recorded the tracks that I liked but you can download the full album Music To Strip By over at Baikinange here.

DAVID ROSE, The Stripper, 1962

The Stripper written by David Rose is  the most famous striptease song.

The Stripper was composed by Rose and recorded in 1958. It was not until its use in the movie Gypsy in 1962 that it became a smash hit, as it was originally used as a throwaway B side to his single, Ebb Tide. The Stripper features especially prominent trombone lines, giving the tune its lascivious signature, and evokes the feel of music used to accompany vaudeville striptease artists.
