Where to find mp3 recordings of 78 rpm records?

Post by D-General » 10 Jul 2019 16:20

Hello everyone, I would just like to ask if there is a good place to find mp3 recordings of 78 rpm records of German Music(Kaiser Reich to III Reich), cause if you guys didn’t know already, most of the main channels who provide these mp3 recordings on YouTube are now gone. So it would be greatly appreciated if any of you can point me to a good website, archive, etc... Where I can find mp3 recordings like these again. Thanks?

Hello,

These are the legal sites (apolitical, with sound files digitized/shared by their owners) that I know of / could remember at the moment:
www.dismarc.org
www.gramofononline.hu
www.russian-records.com

Cheers,
Ivan

Note: DO NOT share links to pirate/political mp3 websites here, they will be deleted.

Thanks Ivan, but I’m really looking for Kaiser Reich soldiers songs and III Reich songs, not civilian songs, since that’s what’s mostly in these websites. But thanks for your help anyway, I really appreciate it!

There is military/war music in all of those websites. Not too much though - which I fully support. War propaganda music shouldn't be spread around in large quantities.

Some of the records with military/march music that I found at gramofononline.hu (years ago; I'm sure there's much more):

My main interest is mostly III Reich Music and just some Kaiser Reich music here and there. I do agree that these political and war propaganda songs shouldn’t be over promoted since people tend to misjudge these songs and they usually get the wrong idea and it can really mess with their opinions and stance in politics since not many people fully understand these songs. For me, I just really like these songs just because the tune is catchy, I don’t really always support the political message these songs carry. Anyways, I just wanted to share my opinion, if there are other good sources I would appreciate it if you point me out to more of them, but I do appreciate you help Ivan, have a nice day!

There's quite a few recordings (and even rarities) of your interest at dismarc.org. When searching, go to "advanced search"; type, for example, "marsch" or "marschlied" (without quotation marks) in one box and a record label used during the Third Reich period in another (Gloria, Odeon, Telefunken, Electrola, Polydor, Grammophon etc), and check the little box "audio and more" below. Happy hunting!

(Don't forget to check whether there's more than one page with search results, at the bottom, on the left.)

Some of the wartime military/propaganda/patriotic music found at dismarc.org (and there's more from the prewar Third Reich):

Electrola EG 7200 ORA 5189-2 Parodie auf die Siegfried-Linie (Ganss) * a very rare record
Electrola EG 7200 ORA 5190-1 Im Osten nun marschieren wir (Steinkopf)

I forgot JPF's website, with sound files from his large record collection (not free though, but not expensive either):

http://www.deutschemarschrevue.com/

He also shared music for free on his YouTube channel, which was sadly taken down (on some nonsense claims).

Cheers,
Ivan

Yes it's a shame youtube is banning freedom of speech. I had enjoyed the music compilations of Jean Pierre Faur, Musik Damals, Soldatenlieder, Marschlieder and others. Because of users like them I discovered many marches that became favourites and brought great joy. There is no racism in the musik nor myself, those songs brought a sense of happiness, strength and enjoyment for most were about love, homeland and kameraden. Yet many derogatory modern music and videos of today regarding the opposite sex, sexism, violence, and borderline racism is allowed. The user Musik Damals (think he had a previous handle) only posted the vinyl record and allowed no comments and had many great uploads and IMO foolish banned. All of those I mentioned actually! So if you guys are reading this, thank you for your time and dedication to share your collection with the world, you will be missed!

For now there's still some of the good musik left from those such as Herms Niel, and other relevant German marches. For how much longer...

There used to be a site called WNtube, however I see it no longer exists. I can imagine it will only be a matter of time before a third party musik/video sharing site becomes available so that we may once again enjoy these wonderful pieces of musical history.

For now, it's time for me to pull out my cd collection to enjoy these marches. Was so convenient to listen to them on youtube, and it was a source many could discover new songs and marches, and come here and link songs to query information.

Regards.

Let's just not confuse freedom of speech with total anarchy and with the mass spreading of political propaganda. I am sorry that many apolitical historical recordings have been also removed along the way, but I'm not the least bit sorry about the disappearance of loads of propaganda and anti-historical material (made-up info, mixing recordings of common love songs with pictures of Nazis and their symbols, and so on), which was often accompanied by various Hitler-praising and hate speech comments (by both far-right and left extremists). There's still quite a lot of it on YouTube. As I wrote before, there is a great deal of difference between listening to political/war music for historical/scientific research purposes in a selected, private environment (offline) and playing it in public (uploading online) - the same as between shooting a gun at a shooting range and in a crowd in public (see this topic). Of course, the same censorship principles should indeed be applied to any other music/video that may negatively affect human judgement and behaviour. (Note: reichmusik, I've removed your product-boycotting remark, it was too much.)

Now let's get back on topic, which is: where to find mp3 recordings of 78 rpm records?

Cheers,
Ivan
