RARITY # 40


ROLF KUHN'S KING SIZED CLARINET
45 RPM (EP) - BERTELSMANN 66 000, GERMANY  c.1961?


This one is for the completists only. I warn you as it is much less exiting than my previous Rolf Kuhn post (EP Holiday in Europe).  There were always two sides to Rolf Kuhn’s musical talent: on the one side the pure, hard swingin’ jazzman and on the other the easy-listening,  commercial,  schlager band leader.  Jazz is nice but I guess one has to eat sometimes …

    1. Thanks Luis. Based on the overall sound, I may be tempted to agree with Lord (for once). Cheers.

  6. Kühn knew how to earn a little money...

    He even did easy versions of Black Sabbath and Santana tracks, see
