Hello, AlexTelefunken wrote:Me and Michail actually were talking about what version it was earlier! Unfortunately for me thats one of my least favorite versions of it, BUT! its still SA marschiert, and I still love it! I should explain better, I understand that it isn't a super rare record, but I have a certain draw to that particular march, I've never really understood why, perhaps its the articulation of the lyrics or the powerful message, or perhaps its the fact that I have not been able to obtain a copy and its become one of those "Want because I can't have" things, but it is absolutely one of my favorites, (its so hard to have just one with this hobby) especially when it comes to more propaganda-like music.
Regarding "SA marschiert": well it is understandable you are drawn to it, as you say, it is an incredibly catchy tune, which is still sang today in Germany (go for example to a Borussia Dortmund match). There are many recordings of the SA variant of this tune; I personally do not collect political records (I do have some though), but most are known to me nevertheless. My recommendation to you would be to search for Grammophon recordings of the song, by Engel's band ("Durch deutsches Land..." it's the one with stomping boots; they also recorded "Durch Groß-Berlin..." version, not as effective) and by Ewers' band ("Im Schlesierland..." an enthusiastic, a bit faster or let's call it "jumpy" version). These two are the best I've heard. I also liked the communist shawm cover of the tune by Kopczyk's band (Artiphon, 1928).
Here are examples of some of the recordings of the full song and of various arrangements of the song, from SCF collectors. Of course, even more recordings were made, this is not all.Telefunken wrote:Do you or anyone else have any more examples of "SA marschiert" labels I could see? As I said, Its one of my favorites, so I'm fairly positive I'd love to see all the different versions.
