Discographical info has been added for the records posted on the last page as well (finally).
Alexander B. wrote:Both performances are by the Musikzug of the SA Standarte 9, with vocals by S. Trupp 13/13. Exactly which "Standarte 9" the performance is by is not extremely clear [...] if it is the SA Standarte 9 of Untergruppe Berlin-West [...]
Yes, it is a Standarte of Untergruppe Berlin-West.

Chor des S. Trupps 13/13 = Chor des Selbständigen Trupps 13 des Selbständigen Sturmbanns 13
(Selbständiger Sturmbann 13 was the name of SA-Standarte 13 at that time; it was part of Untergruppe Berlin-Süd)

Cheers,

Notice that this particular (probably the best known) arrangement of the Italian fascist anthem "Giovinezza" [meaning: Youth] begins with the melody of the famous international youth song "Gaudeamus igitur" [So let us rejoice]. The arrangement was played in both Italy and Germany (unfortunately, I still didn't manage to discover what was the name of the arranger)

Here are examples of some of the recordings of the full song and of various arrangements of the song, from SCF collectors. Of course, even more recordings were made, this is not all.
Hello, Is there any recording on the internet of "Im Schlesierland marschieren wir" ?

Best regards,
Teppeny

Hello everyone,

Long time-no see! I've missed talking to you all! My collection continues to grow, although I haven't been very good at sharing most of it-there's simply too much and not enough time; but, I think its time for some more forum posts! I've been living in Germany and have been able to source quite a few amazing finds.

We'll start my return with this lovely pressing of Kristall 2165

"Das Afrikakorps" is a march by Herms Niel, which I was surprised to see did not get lyrics from Anacker; but, instead lyrics by Hans Flocken.

The song describes the work of the Afrika Korps, fighting valiantly with vehicles and infantry day and night against the "Tommy" to bring down his empire and win victory for Germany in the wilds of Africa.
(I've done my best to translate the original lyrics, translation available in the subtitles of the restoration)

As with many other recordings from this series by the Musikkorps des Luftnachrichten-Regiment des Oberbefehlshabers der Luftwaffe under Obermusikmeister E. Klesant, the song is performed with great enthusiasm and energy and well recorded by the engineers. What else could I say about it? Its an amazing performance

"Schneidig ist die Infanterie!" on side B, another title by Herms Niel, is another amazing gem from the same performers and director as side A. Here its performed with the same great enthusiasm that Herms Niel and his own R.A.D. band gave it. It really is hard to choose which one I prefer. This recording is lacking the lead out that the original rendition by the R.A.D. has, which is a sleight disappointment; but, I still find it a wonderful alternative to the original and sometimes wonder if its not my preferred version!

It seems Kristall delivers again!

Until next time!
Alex
