UC314a/b - 60s (mostly) uncomped - Scratching The Beer-Beat-Barrel, Teil 10

Who would have thought I’ dig up 50 more German tidbits in just 3 months time (volume # 12 was launched in December 2019)? Well, you only have to scratch the Beer-Beat-Barrel deep down to the bottom,  sort the wheat from the chaff (i.e. separate the Schlager molasses from the Beat influenced 45s), and then look what’s uncompiled / un-anthologized and what is not: Here’s what is left: overheard and underrated ditties you sure have looked down on in the 60s (would you ever have bought a Lou von Burg or Peter Horton single?). I admit, many tracks of my collection are borderline to Schlager and Humpta, anyway, after 55 years many sound quite interesting and many deliver hilarious lyrics in excellent dada-English the Germans are famous for and I love so much. I packed some spoken bits from the Defa-film “Heisser Sommer” plus a few live tracks and some romantic songs in the mix, I hope you’ll dig (the words to “Der Regen singt ein Lied” and “Straße der Sehnsucht" are actually very nice). Special thanks go out to Maik Murano, Uwe Dieterich, Antenna Mondo X, Dritter Polizist and to Rüdiger Osterman of the Shot Guns (augezeichneter Geschmack und bestes Gespür, meine Herren!); if you browse their youtube channels you might find more appealing sounds from Germany and surrounding nations. Now let’s see how long it takes to Teil 11… In the meantime, enjoy the Krauts, comrades!
