De Zusjes Kugel

On the little story that I wrote on De Zingende Zusjes I got several reactions. The most surprising one came from of the Zingende Zusjes herself! Her sister has died, but Margje is still alive and kicking. She told me that there are two CD-boxes out with some of the best recordings of De Zingende Zusjes and “Gewoon om u te laten weten, dat wij wel ouder geworden zijn, maar het evangelie NOOIT veroudert!!!! ”.
I started collecting the records of De Zingende Zusjes out of curiosity. The flabbergasting amount of Dutch religious 45’s and complete absence of interest in these records cannot be overlooked, and I thought that if someone should collect this stuff, it just as well be me. I have not counted my collection, but I guess I have over twenty 45’s and EP’s by De Zingende Zusjes.
But like I said earlier, there are more than one Zingende Zusjes that made records. So far I have records of three different Zingende Zusjes. Recent additions to my Zingende Zusjes shelf were two records by De Zingende Zusjes Kugel.
Here is a song from one of these records:
Maybe this stuff is not what you visit this blog for, but i think it is a fascinating genre, worth having a little corner on the Internet.
