The Bats (Germany) - Twist-Time Im Star-Club Hamburg

The Bats evolved from the very active scene in Hamburg- Bramfeld in the early Sixties. Towards the end of the Fifties Skiffle groups turned into the first amateur Rock 'n' Roll bands all over Hamburg. An Indonesian, Peter Bosch, alias Pit Kooy, came to Hamburg in 1947 when he still was a young boy.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
