As you can see in the info I've added to your post, it is the band of SA-Standarte 1, which was led by Müller-John before he was transferred to LAH. They made 4 recordings for Clangor in 1933. Müller-John continued recording for Clangor with LAH as well. Record you have contains the earliest known Müller-John's recordings.Maikowski wrote:I am the Lucky owner of this record; does anyone know anything on the Standarten-Kapelle 1 that is credited on the label ? Since the SS-Standarte 1 was located in Munich, I assume it was more the musical group of SA-Standarte 1 from Berlin that was here conducted by Müller-John, maybe just before the Musikkorps der LAH was formed. What do you think ?

Hello andTelefunken wrote:I recently have come across a copy of a song that I never knew to be herms Niel's recording, Its not his writing, but I never knew he recorded it. The song is very commonly known as "Es dämmert schon im Osten" but is really titled "Wir fahren gegen Osten". I was lucky enough to snag it up for my own collection and it is now on its way here from Germany. Do you have this record, Ivan? Know anything about it?
I am very much familiar with this recording, but unfortunately don't have the original record in my collection yet. Congratulations, this is not a common record. You can find additional info on it in my edit of your post. Almost nothing seems to be known on the authors of "Wir fahren gegen Osten". Seeger is best known as the lyricist of one of the last military hits of the III Reich, "Das Lied der Panzergrenadiere" (music by Norbert Schultze). He wrote a couple more lesser known songs composed by Schultze (for example "Gute Nacht, mein lieber Junge"). "Es dämmert schon im Osten" is of course just the opening line and not the title; the title is, as we can see, "Wir fahren gegen Osten", Lied der Kraftfahrer (or, as they wrote it on the record, Das Lied der Kraftfahrer-Kompanien) - "We're heading (driving) against East", Song of the vehicle drivers. It was published by Bote & Bock in Berlin 1942. Arrangement for a brass/military band [Harmoniemusik] was made by Prof. Hans Felix Husadel and published in 1943. It is interesting that although it is a song against the Soviet Union, they are also mentioning their main enemy England in lyrics (notice also that in the Balkans campaign song none of the Balkans countries was mentioned - only England).
Hello, General Jack, and thanks very much for the kind words. Several links to the full recordings have been added now.GeneralJack wrote:Ivan,
Hoping you are still around some years after the final post in this thread. You may have seen me in some other obscure places on this forum, as I have been scouring for information and trying to complement what I already know as I try to get a better grasp on the topic. First of all thank you for the digital sample, and second I was hoping there may be somebody out there who knows where to find some kind of digital archive of these musical pieces so that I could listen to some more variety and a little more than 40 seconds. Thank you so much to anybody who may have a link or two to share!
Also, posts dealing with the "Badenweiler-Marsch" were split off and merged with the earlier thread: http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=26871
