Re: Where to find mp3 recordings of 78 rpm records?

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

No, your off-topic post was removed. Advertising a fraudster company and writing about actions of a foreign country's police in a pub that a friend of a friend told you about was very much off-topic and anything but helpful. I do agree it was a waste of time and kindly ask you not to do it anymore.

Where to find music in good quality?

Post by DrangNachOsten » 17 Apr 2021 10:18

Not just about the Third Reich, but also other Nations like Italy, Japan etc. Especially military marches or songs of that time. I have some records myself, but otherwise I can only find terrible music which is not from original tapes and recordings, and in very low quality. I can't access the forum for downloading and uploading here, I guess this has been disabled or so? Would be cool to share with others too.

Will the dismarc site grant my request or do I have to purchase or tell them something? Most recordings seem to be from the GHT Verein.

And I would argue propaganda has been used by everyone, but in fact the victors will write the history, so some things might be more frowned upon if another country/person/thing had done it. I won't go into details, but there is a lot of hypocrisy in the modern world about what is "good" and what is "bad", often opinions are not formed objectively.

Dear anonymous member, when someone spends their limited time to reply and try to help you, it's only polite to respond at least with a "thanks", before asking more questions. Otherwise you're just being rude and taking someone else's good will and time for granted. Needless to say, stating that your location is the reader's head is also anything but polite, the same as the motto you chose for your username. Finally, this is not a modern world hypocrisy discussion forum, it's an Axis history research forum. Make sure to stay on-topic and (re-)read the forum rules. Instead of pointing fingers at the world, try working on your own manners.

Ah, I thought I read "London" :) That one is actually a postwar (1948/1949) Decca recording.

And your Radiofunken "Erika" is, of course, the well known 1939 Telefunken (Woitschach's) recording.

Cheers,
Ivan
