SA-Singschar "Rote Erde"

Post by Ivan Ž. » 02 Aug 2019 15:40

The recently started thread about the SA-Sturm 33/1 Chorus reminded me of a lesser known SA chorus that also recorded for the "Telefunken" Company: SA-Singschar "Rote Erde". The group was based in Bochum-Langendreer and led by (Bochum-born) Erich Wintermeier, today best known as the composer of "Der Führer ruft", "Die braune Kompanie" and "Erbsen mit Speck".

To my knowledge, Wintermeier's chorus had only one recording session (05.08.1933), with four tracks recorded:

1933 Telefunken 19227 Verfehmte Fahnen (Wintermeier)
1933 Telefunken 19228 Lied der Arbeitslosen (Wintermeier)
1933 Telefunken 19229 Die braune Kompanie (Wintermeier)
1933 Telefunken 19230 Erbsen mit Speck (Wintermeier)

Info from original record labels:

According to the "Telefunken" recording list, the soloist (in the first two songs) was Paul van 't Oever, who recorded one more song during this recording session, accompanied by Erich Wintermeier on piano: "Wir zogen heim aus Flandern" (unreleased, matrix number 19231).
