It is still known very little about Conductor Alfred Engel and the Blasorchester he led. I start here with photos and scans from my collection.

Hello again Ivan,

Now I have been checking my database for more "missing numbers" from some different record labels and I would really appreciate if you would be so very kind and help me even with these ones that you will find here on this list.

Deutsches Blasorchester, Leitung Alfred Engel (Electrola):
1. OD 1481-1 (EG 2774)
2. OD 1482-1 (EG 2775)
3. OD 1483-1 (EG 2774)
4. OD 1484-1 (EG 2775)
5. OD 1485-1 (EG 2773)
6. OD 1486-1 (EG 2773)
All titles recorded in Berlin 1933. Do you might have a complete recording date for these six titles. They would have been recorded on the same day.

This will do for tonight and I´m so grateful that I have this chance and opportunity to get professional help in filling the gaps in my database.

I have also been specialised in German Kleinkunst and Tanzmusik for 40 years and have lots of information of that Music. If you might have any questions about it please feel free to ask me and I will try to help you!

Very best wishes and Cheers
from thankful Mats
