Post-WWII compositions and compilations

Post by PzKpfw666 » 13 Jun 2006 13:27

[Several topics dealing with post-WWII compositions and compilations have been merged by the host, Ivan Ž.]

This [so-called] "Großes Potpourri der Wehrmacht" has German military marches included. It has 36:20 length. I can hear the first one is "Westerwaldlied" and the last one is "Lili Marleen". It also includes some famous songs like "Panzerlied", "Erika". But most of it I can't identify what it is, even the melody is very acquaintance. I want to find out every march. Could you give me some informations?

Thanks a lot.

These are the first German marching songs I've ever heard - and still are my favourite :D They are also the very last German true old-school-style military recordings. They were made in 1959 in Hamburg by Musikkorps 6 der Bundeswehr under Hauptmann Gerhard Scholz and sung by Soldatenchor des Lehr-Bataillons der Heeresoffizierschule II. The medley is called "Drei Lilien, drei Lilien..." and it was composed by Gustav Kneip (1905-1992). The ridiculous title "Großes Potpourri der Wehrmacht" is just a modern, internet-fiction. It is a Bundeswehr medley - the most famous Bundeswehr medley actually. The included songs are mainly German folk songs from the XIX century; there is one WWI song and four from the III Reich period (there are no songs from WWII). All of them are simple soldiers' and hunters' love songs.

I
- Westerwaldlied (Anonym)
- Ein Schifflein sah ich fahren
- Ein Tiroler wollte jagen
- Wenn wir marschieren
- Argonnerwald, um Mitternacht
- Zehntausend Mann
- Schwarzbraun ist die Haselnuß
- Droben im Oberland
- Erika
- Wohlan, die Zeit ist kommen
- Das schönste Land der Welt
- Schatz, ach, Schatz

II
- Drei Lilien
- Im grünen Wald
- Ihr lustigen Hannoveraner
- Lore, Lore
- Wenn die Soldaten
- Funkerlied
- Hamburg ist ein schönes Städtchen
- Panzerwagenlied
- Ich bin ein freier Wildbretschütz
- Morgen marschieren wir
- Es wollt' ein Mädel früh aufstehn
- Lili Marleen

There is no full version of that particular piece you posted. That is an excerpt from a medley of many songs called "Drei Lilien, drei Lilien..."

Those were all cut from the post-WWII medley "Wohlauf, Kameraden!", composed by Gerhard Scholz and Gerhard Pätzig. It was performed by Musikkorps 6 der Bundeswehr under Major Gerhard Scholz and sung by Soldatenchor des Lehr-Bataillons der Heeresoffizierschule II (the very same performer as in the famous "Drei Lilien, drei Lilien..." medley).

I
- Heut' geht es an Bord
- Jetzt kommen die lustigen Tage
- Hoch auf dem gelben Wagen
- Ein Heller und ein Batzen
- Musketier' seins lust'ge Brüder
- Wohlauf, Kameraden, auf's Pferd
- Die blauen Dragoner
- Brandenburger Lied
- Schön blüh'n die Heckenrosen
- Weit ist der Weg zurück ins Heimatland
- Vom Barette schwankt die Feder
- Prinz Eugen

II
- Parademarsch der Spielleute
- Lockmarsch
- Edelweiß
- Die böse Schwiegermama
- Reserve hat Ruh'
- Hipp, hipp, hurrah!
- 's ist alles dunkel
- Schlesierlied
- Seeräuberlied
- Lippe-Detmold, eine wunderschöne Stadt
- Ich hab' mich ergeben
- Kameraden auf See
- Niedersachsenlied
- Regiment sein Straßen zieht
- Auf, Ansbach-Dragoner!

Ivan, thank you very much! It is "Wohlauf, Kameraden". And where can I get its full version, not fragments?

These look very much like the post war recordings I have on LP's. (bought in Canada in 1965) Even the sequence is the same. Alas, I don't have them on my computer, so I cannot help you download. It might pay off to scrounge some second hand records stores, the Goodwill, or the Salvation Army. I have picked up some pretty nice records there through the years.

Re: Wohlauf in Gottes schöne Welt [EP]

Post by Ivan Ž. » 01 Aug 2007 13:07

The medley (a compilation actually) was made after WWII and had nothing to do with the HJ.

It contains the following songs:

- Wilde Gesellen vom Sturmwind durchweht
- Wir sind des Geyers schwarze Haufen
- Vom Barette schwankt die Feder
- Die blauen Dragoner
- Gute Nacht, Kameraden

The performer is a Hamburger Jugendgruppe conducted by Heinz Zabel. The songs originate from a Telefunken 45 rpm record "Wohlauf in Gottes schöne Welt", from where they were copied on the Documentary Series' LP "Wir Jungen tragen die Fahne" (vols. 3 & 4), where they were (shamelessly) published as HJ songs. And from this (fake HJ) LP, they were copied on the internet.
