Berlin Beatet Bestes
Friday, 19 June 2009
Rob Kopp, who is working on a book with a complete list of ALL records ever released in Holland the sixties, sent me link to a German blog about advertisement records, Berlin Beatet Bestes.
I don’t really collect German advertisement records, but still I have quite a few nice ones. In Gemany the advertisement records were more poppy than in Holland, which is not necessary a good thing, by the way. Here is a typical German advertisement record, ”Swinging Nord West” by Orchester Wolf Gabbe und die Rosy Singers:
This record was printed at Sonopresse. At least, that is what I guess, based on the number SH 0747-1, which is printed in the one-sided 6 inch flexi record. There is also the name of a Dutch shoe store printed on the record. This was something that was done often with advertisement records: the stores could order a pile of records with their own name on the sleeve or record label.
