I heard a version of this song which was obviously a newer recording, very clear and professional. It's two tenors who alternate between singing in harmony and other times in counterpoint. Since this is a new recording and not taken from 78rpm, I assume there might be some WWII music fans here who will recognize it. Does this ring a bell for any one?

Alternately, you can hear it on YouTube.

Thanks for any help.

I have been told that particular recording was part of an album which was recorded in the late 1970's by a band composed of former Wehrmacht members. This would explain why they also recorded "unauthorized" songs such as the "Bombenfliegermarsch der Legion Condor". Their performance is excellent.

Intriguing... I did a Google search for websites containing both song titles but failed to discover any one record that contains both. Perhaps someone knows more. Thanks, SQ37!

Have a look at the songs uploaded there http://www.youtube.com/user/chouquetteduguili from "Blinkende Spaten" to "Es donnern unsre Motoren" in chronological order. They are from the same band which recorded the song you mentioned.

He runs a site that sells CDs. I just went through the entire online catalog, about twenty CDs or so, but didn't find any songs by this group. I've also messaged him asking if he can identify the artist and recording. Fingers crossed.

Thanks to SQ37 and the person who runs that YouTube channel, the CD has been identified.

CD title: Die deutsche Kriegsmarine
Label: Documentary Series

Artist, like SQ37 mentions, unknown.

For any one else interested, note that there are numerous recordings from the same unnamed ensemble. You will recognize them in the list of CDs by the covers: top part has white title against red background, with bottom two thirds a black and white picture.

Thanks, SQ!

You're welcome but these "Documentary series" CDs are only compilations of audio documents. They were first released in the 1970's as LP records. The songs you are interested in for sure come from another, original LP record, which I have never seen.

I see. In that case, it sounds like this original phantom LP would be an expensive collector's item, if found. Meanwhile, I have at least managed to locate that particular rendition of "Fahren wir weit übers Meer."

By the way, is there any sort of guide to CD releases of Third Reich recordings? I see there is a review section. I'm talking more about a list of CDs whose quality is generally agreed upon by collectors.

Hello,

I've merged your post with an older topic mentioning the same medley; please see the answer in the list there (it's "Da drunten vor dem Tore").

Cheers,
Ivan

I'm surprised no one has commented it yet but.. "Me-109-Lied" is indeed a Swiss march song. Source: http://tinyurl.com/jmkfx8n

(I had to use a tinyurl because the full link randomly would cut itself off at the end, nonetheless this one works very well - it's a link to a metapedia page)

Please don't use the Metapedia (or Wikipedia) as a source here. They are far from reliable (and when it comes to the Third Reich / military music, they are especially worthless). There was no reply yet because most members here wait before replying until they have a solid source.

Cheers,

Das macht die Regimentsmusik

Das macht die Regimentsmusik,
die durch die Stadt marschiert,
das jedes kleine Mädelchen
sofort sein Herz verliert.

Soldaten, die warten
nicht lange auf den allerersten Kuss.
Denn keiner kann wissen
ob er morgen nicht schon weiterziehen muss.

Das macht die Regimentsmusik,
die durch die Stadt marschiert.
das jedes kleine Mädelchen
sofort sein Herz verliert.

1. Mit klingendem Spiel durch die Straßen,
die Trommeln sie schlagen "Bumm, Bumm!"
Das Bayernland marschiert mit den Soldaten,
so mit "Tschingderassa, Tschingderassa, Bumm!"

Das macht die Regimentsmusik,
die durch die Stadt marschiert.
das jedes kleine Mädelchen
sofort sein Herz verliert.

2. Im Städtchen da warten die Mädchen,
sie warten und wissen warum.
Sie warten auf die Liebe der Soldaten
und das "Tschingerassa, Tschingerassa, Bumm!"

Soldaten, die warten
nicht lange auf den allerersten Kuss.
Denn keiner kann wissen
ob er morgen nicht schon weiterziehen muss.

Das macht die Regimentsmusik,
die durch die Stadt marschiert.
das jedes kleine Mädelchen
sofort sein Herz verliert.


Go wild,
A.A
Prepare for anything, and you will need nothing.
