American band leader Jack Ross recorded the instrumental Happy José (Ching Ching Ching) for the Dot label in 1962. It became a novelty hit overseas, especially in Holland. A Finnish version sung by Brita Koivuneneven and the Four Cats even had lyrics.
This is a odd German cover version because the silly laughing that is cut into the original is exchanged with the even sillier whickering of a horse.
My name is Andreas Michalke. I´m a cartoonist from Berlin, Germany and I like collecting records. Most of the records I find in thrift stores or at flea markets here in Berlin. I like a lot of music but I thought I`d focus on odd German records. Preferably with cartoon covers.
All my scans are high-resolution. If you double-click on them they will get much bigger.
1. I will not use material, that is already available in digital format elsewhere.
2.The artists I present are either anonymous or pseudonymous or dead or no longer active.
3. I feel that if nobody has cared to reissue a record in 50 years, it is fair to present it.
Note: Please don´t ask for re-ups. I don´t have time for that. What´s gone is gone.
