Hey....glam rock was cool -- then! David Bowie, Gary Glitter (the old perv!), Bay City Rollers, T-Rex (classic stuff, that! Especially Marc Bolan's first foray as T-Rex with "Electric Warrior").... some of us liked it as well as the heavy metal stuff (only back then it was called "progressive rock") like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, King Crimson (I loved In The Court of the Crimson King). I don't know if Emerson, Lake, and Palmer could rightly be classified as "heavy metal"....no....but "progressive" certainly. Ooooh, what a lucky man he was!!! Fantastic stuff....

Must have been easy for you lads with the frauleins........ The sound we got from them in the 1950's usually was "Tommy go home!" Fair enough, we would agree with that but being there wasn't our idea, it wasn't possible . So we came up with an answer.........
" Wenn Tommy geht, kommt Ivan ". That usually made them think it could be worse. And the funny thing was that, when the regt was posted back to UK, there were plenty in Salisbury who also saw us as a threat to their daughters.

Looks a little bit dated now, but he did have a good voice.

Wow look at that! Oh my. I used to watch that little boy singing on TV in Dortmund.
Used to remember using the 'shower tap' as a Microphone at Bathtime and singing, 'Young Girl' Gary Puckett and the Union Gap,  'Those were the days'  Mary Hopkin' 'Fox on the Run' - Manfred Man and loads of others including Massachussettes - Bee Gees, Leapy Lee - Little Arrows and Dizzy - Tommy Roe.  

Remember Scaffold - Lily the Pink, Lulu, Im a Tiger. Bands, the Troggs, The Tremoloes, everything was 'THE' before the band name.Very Happy between sixties/early seventies. I loved Bowie and Bolan probably leant to more the commercial stuff as the 70s evolved but my brother was into Genesis 'Brain Salad Surgery' Edwin Starr, Deep Purple (Fantastic LP - Who do you think we are') just loved music.

The big hit on BFN and Forces Family Favourites in '54 was Oh Mein Papa by the Oberkirken Kinder Choir - How sad is that!! Funny thing was - it was not played on German radio and the German record shops had never heard of it.

BAOR(27CIB)
The sounds of Germany, 50s
Tracing back Shelldrake's thread,  I remember  the entertainer at the Rot Muhle Klub (The Red Mill) in   Hannover trying to sing an American hit , The A,B,C, song, in a mixture of German  and English.  It was hilarious.  A bottle of French haute Sautern  may have contributed  to the hilarity. I have tried a number of times to locate the song on UTube  with no luck.

the sounds of Germany 50's
Shelldrake, you are right on with  your correction about my elusive English search for the A,B,C, song.  I was able to navigate through your hyperlink and found it immediately on UTube.  It lists a number of German versions  for the song,  one being Das  Deutsche alphabet-ABC Lied.  I remember  the German entertainer getting  the patrons  at the club involved.  I have added the lied to my favorite song list on my BB Playbook.
    Thanks much,
     Bob
