ERWIN LEHN & DAS SÜDFUNK-TANZORCHESTER
"THE GERMAN JAZZ HURRICANE"
(COLUMBIA 33 WS 508 10", Germany, 1956).
This one's for Paul D. It's been on his wish list for a long, long time and the original 25 cm is now very rare.
I intended to post it within the Rarity Series but I discovered that it had been re-issued on a CD ""Music, Maestro, Please - Erwin Lehn 1947 - 1959" which is still currently available. It went under the radar as it is usually filed under schlager / german easy listening, a category I rarely browse (perhaps I should, I might come across unexpected surprises).
MPS collectors will recognize some familiar names for sure!
