A recording by Ludwig Wehmeyer could be possibly recorded for radio, because I know one radio recording of him (Galoppmarsch des Feldartillerie-Regiments Nr. 75 (HM III B, 77).

Please see the newly-added info in the initial "Soldatenlieder III" post (on the previous page) :)

Several posts have been split-off into the topic "Hipp, hipp, hurrah!"

Two posts have been split-off into the topic "Schwarzbraun ist die Haselnuß"

Interesting that here the autor is credited as H. Liebisch (see page 5).

Thanks for bringing this up. Yes, he was initially credited both as A. and H. Liebisch. Not 100% sure which one is correct.

From Hofmeister's Sept. 1896 catalog (p. 413, 414):

On record labels, he was usually credited as Liebisch only, or as A. Liebisch.
See Klingsor Record K 0114, for example, or Beka-Grand-Record 12186. (You may also search Mr Kaiser's list with the word Liebisch.)

But, even though there seem to be more "votes" for the initial "A", we still can't be 100% certain that it is the right one.

Cheers,
Ivan

Now I see, I haven't seen another catalogs (except the Kaiser's one), I must admit. Thanks for pointing on them, Ivan!

It is indeed. Before it was taken over by the Carl Lindström AG, Odeon was a label of the International Talking Machine Co.

Looking for info on cassette tapes made by Hammer

Post by Panther_theride » 20 Dec 2019 22:53

I have several cassettes with WW2 German songs on them. The majority of these are credited with being created by Hammer. I am wondering if anybody could give me more info on these as just googling doesn't being anything up.

Here are some photos of three of the cassettes.

SS-Leibstandarte1.jpg

SS-Wiking1.jpg
SS-Wiking2.jpg
SS_Finnish_Legion1.jpg
SS_Finnish_Legion2.jpg
Something I noticed is that the size of the text does not match up compared to other tapes and even the text on the cassette deviates in size from the text on flap. On the SS-Wiking tape the text on the cassette is normal size while the text on the flap is bold and on the SS Finnish tape the text on the cassette is bold while the text on the flap is normal size.

All three have copyright 1993 by Hammer. Made in U.S.A.
I have several other cassettes although not all are made by Hammer. I can post pictures of those and the others if wanted.

Hello and :welcome:

I don't have these particular cassettes, but I am familiar with the featured tracks. However, without hearing each of them and making sure which version is which, I wouldn't feel comfortable identifying them yet. If you have the tracks digitized, do send me a private message.

At this point, all I can say for the "SS-Leibstandarte" cassette is that there are only three tracks performed by the Leibstandarte band there: "Leibstandartenmarsch Adolf Hitler", "Klar zum Gefecht" and (likely) "Flieger empor!" (I still need to make sure that it's their version). The band never made commercial recordings of the other tracks, except for "Flieg', deutsche Fahne, flieg'!" (incorrectly credited by Hammer as "Soldat Kamerad"), but I doubt their version of this song is featured on the cassette (it's almost certainly the more common, Carl Woitschach's version). So, the album is obviously a scam. The same as the "SS Finnish Legion" album, which actually offers only Finnish civilian covers of popular German songs (nothing to do with the SS; the songs themselves are nice though). The "SS-Wiking" cassette is better and does contain some (more or less) Wiking-related recordings - and some off-topic (postwar!) ones too.

Cheers,
Ivan
