Various Artists – Rockin With The Krauts – Real Rock N Roll Made In Germany Volume 5 – CD


Band: Various Artists

Label: Bear Family

Format: CD

Catalogue Number: BCD17730


What’d I Say, to cite The Gisha Brothers and Ray Charles: The Krauts are rockin’ – for the fifth time.
Over the last three years, Bear Family’s ‘Rockin’ with the Krauts’ CD-series has become one of the
label’s most successful. The first editions sold out quickly and had to be reprinted regularly, and fans
were hungry for more kraut, sorry, rock and roll.

The CD sweeps off with Germany’s King of Rock and Roll, the great Ted Herold. Ted delivers one of
his famous and well-done cover versions of Elvis Presley – Hey Baby (A Big Hunk O‘Love).
Volume 5 of ‘Rockin’ with the Krauts’ again presents rough garage rock from the early ‘60s, the true
genesis of rock and roll in the land of “poets and thinkers.” With Chuck Berry’s Beautiful Delilah, The
Phantom Brothers prove that maracas were handled appropriately in the land of the Sauerkraut. Their
punky sound ditches the Rolling Stones, sweeps away the Downliners Sect, and anticipates the
sound of the ‘80s and ‘90s. The Pralins rock Chuck Berry in a somewhat more civilized way – with a
lovely Kraut accent and a chilled-out attitude. Lou Reed is nothing compared to that. The German
Bonds with I’m a Hog for You Baby and The Rollicks with the eternal garage anthem Louie Louie
sound the same note. The beach parties on the Baltic and North Sea with illegal fires and legalized
marijuana are guaranteed – let’s rock!

The compilation also includes classics in Northern Band and Jump style, such as Mr. Patton aus
Manhattan by Werner Hass (why look for an artist name when your dad has thought of it?) and 3
Minuten Rock by Suzi Miller and the Starlets—sometimes three minutes is enough.
Mal Sondock, who brought the hit parade to German-speaking households in the Rhineland and
Ruhrgebiet via radio station WDR, voiced his destiny with Hey, Hallo Baby (Komm zum Record Hop).

But the real hits are the unobvious titles: At a time when every German pop singer had to have an
exotic name – or rather an exotic accent – Franconians also had a chance to make a record! Rudi
Büttner (which sounds almost like Rock-a-Billy), at the end of the 1950s, anticipated the excessive
Anglicisms of future times. Denglish Doobie-Dam-Dam. The insider tip of the CD comes from the British Rhine Army, Mönchengladbach: Doch Du lässt mich nie allein – a haunting rhumba that leaves us disturbed but aroused. Humor, horror, and rock and roll – the Germans did it – do it – want it!
