Various Artists – Rockin’ With The Krauts – Real Rock N Roll Made In Germany Vol. 4 – CD


Band: Various Artists

Label: Bear Family

Format: CD

Catalogue Number: BCD17705


Crazy-O: Bear Family Records’® ‘Rockin’ With The Krauts’ mini-series beats all sales records. Yep,
even re-editions of volumes 1 and 2, released shortly before Christmas 2022, sold out before the first
fall of snow. So Santa Claus called for a crisis summit, and the production department met to
brainstorm for volume 4.

And now, Bear Family Records® proudly presents another breathtaking compilation of German Rock
& Roll from the ‘50s and early ‘60s. The balancing act between the Northern Band sound of Conny
Quick’s Rock Baby Rock, which sounds like Conny singing in the shower to the swing program on his
tube radio, and the raw beer cellar sound of the famed Rattles with Shimmy Shimmy, succeeds
effortlessly. The compilation delivers unusual gems like the Liverpool Beats’ cover of Jimmy Reed’s
Let’s Get Together, a bold copy of the Marcels’ Blue Moon, and Kiss Me by Dieter Kersten and his
Rockin’ Stars.

Their garage teen rockabilly is reminiscent of early Johnny Powers. Peter Reese and the Pages deliver a cosmic Silver Surfer sound yet call their instrumental modestly Pages Rhythm. The countryesque Die Farbe der Liebe by jazz virtuoso Paul Kuhn is a late-hour bar shuffle for the Wirtschaftswundermann. And if that’s not enough exotic mishmash swingeroo, you’ll be confronted with the unleashed Hannes Patek. There hasn’t been a more beautiful echo or deranged sax solo since mighty Esquerita rocked along.

‘Rockin’ With The Krauts, Vol.4’ is another must-have in any collection. Since it’s best to stop when
the buns are busting, it’s Bear Family’s grand finale. Hannes Wüst knows best: “Today we do Bim
Bim.” You can’t top that – only with ‘Bum Bum’ – really Wüst … GO GET IT!
