Michael Holm - Die Singles 1961 - 65)

Michael Holm (born Lothar Walter, July 29, 1943, Stettin, today Szczecin) is a German singer, musician, songwriter and producer. He is primarily known as a Schlager singer. Although his first appearance in the hit parade was in 1962 ("Lauter Schöne Worte"), he had his first big hit in 1969. "Mendocino", the German adaptation of a song by the Sir Douglas Quintet, was the biggest selling single that year in Germany. The record was released in September 1969, reached number three for five weeks, selling over a million copies.[1] Ariola presented him with a gold record in October 1970.[1]
Further hits such as "Barfuß im Regen" (1970), "Tränen lügen nicht" (literally, "Tears Don't Lie", recorded in English as "When A Child Is Born") (1974) and "Musst Du jetzt gerade gehen, Lucille" (1977) followed. He also composed the music for the popular international horror movie, Mark of the Devil (1970). Outside of Germany, he is best known for his work as a member of the new age band, Cusco, along with Kristian Schultze.
He was nominated three times for a Grammy Award.

The Bel-Airs - Volcanic Action (1961)

Band members

Paul Johnson (guitar)
Eddie Bertrand (guitar)
Richard Delvy (drums, replacing Dick Dodd)
Dick Dodd (drums)
Chas Stuart (saxophone)
Jim Roberts (piano)

One of the very first instrumental surf combos, this Southern California group recorded one of the first big regional surf hits, "Mr. Moto." Its heavily reverbed guitar lines, distinct Mexican melodic influence, and honking sax helped set the prototype for hundreds of songs that would be recorded in the next two to three years. None of the other material the group recorded in the early '60s was as successful or memorable. Guitarist Paul Johnson was still active decades later, while guitarist Eddie Bertrand went on to form the surf band Eddie & the Showmen.

Decades after their early-'60s existence, the Bel-Airs were a compilation-only band. Forty years later, Sundazed collected what they could and released a great collection of tracks by of the first instrumental surf bands. Volcanic Action! contains "Mr. Moto," their signature hit, as well as a take on the "Peter Gunn Theme" called "Peter Pistol." Plenty of nods to their contemporaries here, with covers of surf deities the Ventures and Dick Dale. While not quite as championed as those legendary acts, this Sundazed collection points out that flaw, revealing that these five SoCal lads could hold their own. Clean guitar lines, no bass, and the expert use of Chaz Stuart's masterful recorded saxophone set the Bel-Airs apart. A great reissue by Sundazed, a label proving themselves a match for '60s reissue albums alongside such titans as Rhino.

Del Reeves - Doodle Oo Doo Doo (1965)

Del Reeves enjoyed a run of success on the country charts during the latter half of the '60s, often penning his own material as well. He was born Franklin Delano Reeves in Sparta, NC, in 1933; the youngest of 11 children, he learned guitar by borrowing his brothers' instruments while they were serving in World War II. He was a local radio star by age 12 and later attended Appalachian State College and served in the Air Force, which led to a relocation to Sacramento. There he became a regular on The Chester Smith Show from 1958-1961, after which he moved to Nashville and began recording for Decca (his first chart single was 1961's "Be Quiet Mind"). He and his wife also became a professional songwriting team, contributing material to Carl Smith, Rose Maddox, Roy Drusky, and Sheb Wooley. Short stints at Reprise and Columbia preceded Reeves' signing with United Artists, where he landed his first number one hit, "Girl on a Billboard," in 1965. Its follow-up, "The Belles of Southern Bell," made the Top Five, and "Women Do Funny Things to Me" reached the Top Ten in early 1966. Three more songs -- "Looking at the World Through a Windshield," "Be Glad," and his signature tune, "Good Time Charlie's" -- made the Top Five over 1968-1969, and he cut a series of duets with Bobby Goldsboro and Penny DeHaven over the next several years. He also returned to the screen, hosting Del Reeves' Country Carnival on television and appearing in several feature films during the late '60s. His last big Top Ten hit came with 1971's "The Philadelphia Fillies," but he continued to record for United Artists through the '70s, cutting some more duets with Billie Jo Spears in 1976. He departed in 1979 and later became a music executive, playing a role in the signing of Billy Ray Cyrus.

Французская актриса, танцовщица и певица.

Настоящее имя и фамилия — Николь Ястербельски.

Начинала карьеру как танцовщица знаменитого парижского кабаре "Crazy Horse Saloon". Выступала с экзотическими танцами.
В 1960-е годы выпустила несколько дисков-миньонов с записями песен. В 1971 году состоялся дебют Риты Кадиллак на сцене драматического театра.

Perry Combo - Juke Box Baby

One of the most popular vocalists between the end of World War II and the rise of rock & roll in the mid-'50s, Perry Como perfected the post-big-band approach to pop music by lending his own irresistible, laid-back singing -- influenced by Bing Crosby and Russ Columbo -- to the popular hits of the day on radio, TV, and LP. Both his early traditional crooning style plus his later relaxed manner and focus on novelty material were heavily indebted to Bing Crosby, though Como's appeal during the early '50s was virtually unrivaled. Born in 1912 in Canonsburg, PA, Como was working as a singing barber in his hometown when he began touring with local bandleader Freddie Carlone at the age of 21. By the mid-'30s, he got his big break with Ted Weems & His Orchestra, who headed a popular radio show named Beat the Band. After the orchestra broke up in 1942, Como hosted a regional CBS radio show later called Supper Club. The show's success gained him a contract with RCA Victor Records by 1943, and he also began working in Hollywood with Something for the Boys. 

Perry Como's real big break came with the 1945 film A Song to Remember. His rendition of "Till the End of Time" spent ten weeks at the top of the charts and became the biggest hit of the year. Como's dreamy baritone worked especially well on ballads, such as the additional 1945-1947 number one hits "Prisoner of Love," "Surrender," and "Chi-Baba, Chi-Baba (My Bambino Go to Sleep)." Hired by NBC for another radio show in 1948, Como crossed over to the emerging medium of television that same year with the Chesterfield Supper Club. The show quickly took off, and eventually earned him four Emmy Awards. In the mid-'50s, Como began to indulge in light novelty fare, the titles often comprising nonsense words -- "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Doo," "Hoop-Dee-Doo," "Pa-Paya Mama," and "Hot Diggity (Dog Ziggity Boom)." Though he often disliked the songs, they frequently became huge of the road pop. 

Como's breezy songs had worked well at the beginning of the decade, but his appeal began to wane towards the end of the '50s, with the emergence of rock & roll and the wave of teen idols. His last number one hit, "Catch a Falling Star," came in 1958. Como was much less visible during the '60s, but returned in 1970 with his first live show in over two decades, and a world tour followed; a single ("It's Impossible") even made the Top Ten in late 1970. Como continued to record LPs and occasional television specials while making scattered appearances during the '70s and '80s. On May 12, 2001, Perry Como died in his sleep at his home in Florida.

Release Date
Dec 25, 1999
Recording Date
Oct 13, 1945 - Feb 14, 1962

Certainly not a collection of Perry Como's most famous hits (although "Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes," "Hot Diggity (Dog Ziggity Boom)," and "Magic Moments," and "Catch a Falling Star" are all found here), Juke Box Baby contains 30 tracks (including two versions, one mono and one stereo, of "Dancin'"), mainly from the 1950s, but also sneaking into the '60s and '40s, and even into 1988 ("Bella Bella Sue"). This is certainly not the album for someone wishing to start his Perry Como collection, but it's an OK choice for someone already familiar with him.

Die Peanuts (The Peanuts) - Souvenirs Aus Tokio 1964-1967


Сёстры-близнецы родились в японском городе Токонамэ (Айти) 1 апреля 1941 года. Вскоре после их рождения семья переехала в город Нагоя. Дебютировали 11 февраля 1959 года. Дуэт «Арахисовые Орешки» (The Peanuts) был одной из первых японских сенсаций в мире поп-музыки. Дуэт состоял из двух абсолютно
одинаковых близняшек Эми и Юми Ито Их открыл Ватанабэ Про, основатель Шо Ватанабэ. Этот музыкальный импресарио увидел их выступление в клубе в городе Нагойя. Они выступали под именем Сестер Ито. В 1958 году он привез их в Токио и придумал название «Арахисовые Орешки». Ватанабэ организовал их выступление в новой телевизионной программе Хит Парад. В апреле 1959 года они записали свой первый сингл «Кавайи Хана» (Прелестный Цветок) и следом за ним еще один «Джюнетцу но Хана» (Цветок Страсти), имевший оглушительный успех. Наибольшую известность они получили благодаря своеобразному исполнению известных европейских песен и ряду японских песен, таких как «Фуримуканайдэ» («Не оборачивайся»).

 В 1963 году The Peanuts записывают один из самых известных своих хитов — «Каникулы любви», прозвучавший во всей Европе и в СССР, где в переводе Леонида Дербенёва он стал шлягером 60-х годов со словами «У моря, у синего моря…».

В 1963 году они познакомились с родившейся в Париже немецкой певицей Катериной Валенте, песни которой они исполняли. Так они добились популярности в Германии. В свою очередь, Катерина Валенте также исполнила их хит «Каникулы Любви». Дуэт  появлялся в различных американских шоу, включая шоу Эдда Салливана и Дэнни Кэйва. Среди других их известных хитов были «Кои но Фуга» (Фуга Любви) и «Сайонара ва Тотсузен» (Прощание так неожиданно).
Сила их воздействия была в практически идентичных голосах с чуть сдвинутыми тональностями, что создавало ощущения исполнения песен одним голосом с некоторым эффектом реверберации.
В 1975 году The Peanuts окончательно ушли со сцены

Name in Japanese: ザ・ピーナッツ, ざ・ぴーなっつ
Years Active: 1959 - 1975Members: Yumi Ito, Emi Ito
The Peanuts were one of Japan's first pop sensations, and one of the few that has become well known internationally. The duo comprised identical twin sisters Emi and Yumi Ito, born Hideyo and Tsukiko Ito on April 1, 1941 in Aichi prefecture. They were discovered by Watanabe Pro founder Sho Watanabe. The music impresario first saw them performing at a club in Nagoya as the Ito Sisters, and in 1958 brought them to Tokyo, where they were dubbed The Peanuts. Watanabe was able to get them work as presenters on the newly launched TV program The Hit Parade. In April 1959 they made their successful recording debut with the single "Kawaii Hana (Cute Flower)", and followed with the smash "Jyonetsu no Hana (Passion Flower)". Their fame was cemented by their twelve year run, 1961 thru 1972, as the hostesses of TV show Shabondama Holiday" (Soap Bubble Holiday). The name of the show came about as it was sponsored by a soap company, which insisted on the title. Their career had many other highlights however. In 1963 they had a huge hit with "Koi no Bakansu (Vacation of Love)". Also in 1963 they befriended the Paris-born German singer Caterina Valente, whose songs they had covered. This led to The Peanuts performing and becoming popular in Germany. Later Valente in turn recorded a cover of The Peanuts' hit "Koi no Bakansu". The Peanuts also appeared on popular US variety TV shows, including Ed Sullivan's and Danny Kaye's. Other major hits included "Koi no Fuga (Love Fugue)" and "Sayonara wa Totsuzen Ni (Good-bye Is Sudden)". "Koi no Fuga" was covered in 2003 by  Yuki Koyanagi, and by W, a Morning Musume side project in 2005. However, what made The Peanuts most famous internationally was singing in monster movies. They were featured in, and sang the theme songs, to three Mothra movies - Mothra (1961), Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964), and Ghidorah, the Three Headed Monster (1965). They appeared as fairies or pixies, called "shobijin" (small beauties) who had telepathic communication with Mothra, giving The Peanuts a somewhat supernatural aura. In fact they were in many other films, but the others were not shown around the world as the Mothra films were. Being identical twins, Emi and Yumi looked very much alike. Emi however had a mole next to her left eye, so in order to keep the twin image Yumi drew on a mole of her own. Emi married famed singer/actor Kenji Sawada, but later divorced. The Peanuts retired from show business with a sayonara appearance on Nihon TV on May 25, 1975. They appeared on Kohaku Uta Gassen all sixteen years of their life in the "geino kai", or celebrity world. They exited while still young and popular, and remain fondly remembered show business legends.

VA - Hippies, Hasch und Flower Power/68er Pop aus Deutschland “Despite its Teutonic title and its release on the German label Bear Family, this collection contains more than just German artists. As a document of the late-1960s psychedelic-era rock/pop explosion as experienced through German ears, it includes not only the paisley-patterned sounds of German artists like Bernd Spier and Manfred Krug, but also French '60s popsters like France Gall and Michel Polnareff, and even a German recording by British rockers the Spencer Davis Group.”

Hersteller: Bear Family
Original-Erscheinungsjahr: 1968
Produktionsjahr: 2008
Cat. Nr.: BCD 16365
Medium: CD
Land: Deutschland
Anlagedatum: 2008-06-04
Bearbeitungszeit: 1 Tag

Stьcke wie Marihuana Mantra (Kuno & The Marihuana Brass), das eingedeutschte (Aquarius) Der Wassermann (Spencer Davis Group) oder Hippie Hippie (France Gall) geben die hцchstmцgliche Peinlichkeit lediglich von der anderen, vermeintlich coolen Seite wieder. Gerade das macht diesen Sampler zu einem gro?artigen Partyspa?, zu einem politischen Zeitdokument und bis hinein ins umfangreiche CD-Booklet zu einer der liebevollsten Verцffentlichungen dieses Sommers. (Intro, August 2008) 

Beat, Pop, Schlager: Sьchtig machende Compilationen der etwas anderen Art. (...)25 Songs aus jener Дra sammelt HIPPIES, HASCH UND FLOWERPOWER, eine in abwaschbarer Plastikhьlle mit goldener Schrift auf knalligem Rot verpackte Kollektion wie die damals beliebte Mao- Bibel. Aber auch hochexplosiv wie der Jazz Rock-Swing, den Vivi Bach und Dietmar Schцnherr mit Molotow Cocktail Party servieren.. - 5/6 Sternen (Musikexpress, August 2008) 

Doll, was dem deutschen Schlager zwischen ґ66 und ґ72 so alles zum Titel-Thema eingefallen ist. Kopfschьttel-Obskuritдten zwischen Spie?er-Schlager und Betroffenheits-Pose. (TV Spielfilm, 25. Juli 2008) 

CD mit 25 Original Titel + 32 seitiges Booklet. 
CD des Spezialistenlabels "Bear Family Records" 

1968 in Deutschland und anderswo. Es war die Zeit des Umbruchs und des Aufbruchs - und es kцnnte fьr so manchen nach 40 Jahren auch die Zeit des Zusammenbruchs sein, wenn er/sie sich nдmlich das neue Obskuritдtenkabinett von Bear Family Records angehцrt hat...! Blumenkinder und Gummiknьppel. Gammler und Demonstrationen. Haschpfeifen und staatstragende Hilflosigkeit. Noch heute ist diese Zeit Thema fьr seriцse Aufarbeitung in Bьchern, fьr Filmdokumentationen und Diskussionsrunden. Schon damals gab es aber auch eine Schallplattenindustrie, der jedes Thema recht war, um es in Rillen zu pressen - also mu?te auch alles rund um die '68er' (Genannten) verarbeitet werden. Aus heutiger Sicht sorgt fast alles, was damals aufgenommen wurde, vor allem textlich fьr eine Mixtur aus Lachsalven und Kopfschьtteln. Es gab Schlager, Betroffenheits-Folklore und vorsдtzliche Blцdeleien. Und dazu traten Stars aus allen Himmelsrichtungen in deutscher Sprache an: Bernd Spier, Bill Ramsey und Wencke Myhre; Franz Josef Degenhardt, France Gall, die City Preachers und Christopher & Michael; die Spencer Davis Group, Insterburg & Co. und Kaplan Flury - wilder konnte (und kann) die Mischung gar nicht sein! Nur die wenigsten der hier zusammengetragenen Songs haben sich zдhlbar gut verkauft - die Folge: viele sind lдngst kaum noch zu finden und zu Raritдten mutiert, die es zum Teil noch nie auf CD gegeben hat und die darum den imaginдren Stempel 'RARITДT' tragen. Titelzeilen wie Gammelshake , Wir sind verlauste Affen oder Molotow Cocktail Party genьgen eigentlich schon, um grц?te Neugier zu entfachen - und wer nur einmal Kaplan Flurys Jimi, oh Jimi Hendrix gehцrt hat, wird diese CD hьten wie seinen eigenen Augapfel.

The Tempos - Speaking Of (1966-67)


The Yellow Pages - Volume 1 (1968)

Garage rockers the Yellow Payges formed in Torrance, California in the fall of 1965 -- while attending a performance by friends the Palace Guard at the Hollywood club the Hullabaloo, vocalist Dan Hortter took the stage to sing a rendition of "I'm a Man," so impressive that club owner Gary Bookasta hired Hortter's own band to back the Newbeats two weeks later. The problem was, Hortter's previous band, the Driftones, had dissolved months earlier, but he quickly assembled a new Driftones' lineup including guitarists John Knox and Larry Tyre, bassist Herby Ratzloff, and drummer Terry Rae, also a member of the Palace Guard. Rae resigned almost immediately after the Newbeats gig, with drummer Dan Gorman signing on in time for the group to change its name to the Yellow Payges. They were soon playing the Hullabaloo on a steady basis, with Bookasta signing on as manager -- in 1966, Knox, Tyre, and Ratzloff exited, with guitarists Bob Norsoph and Randy Carlisle, and bassist Mike Rummans signing on in their stead. When Norsoph and Carlisle quit soon after, Rummans moved to guitar, with Jim Lanham briefly assuming bass duties prior to the addition of bassist Teddy Rooney, son of Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney. In 1967, this Yellow Payges lineup issued their debut single, the Showplace label effort "Never See the Good in Me" -- "Jezebel" followed later that year, and both records generated enough local buzz to earn the band a contract with major label UNI. In addition to releasing their label debut "Our Time Is Running Out," in late 1967, the Yellow Payges closed out the year as part of Dick Clark's Happening '67, a package tour which traveled to 45 U.S. cities in 45 days. In mid-'68, both Rummans and Rooney exited, with Hortter and Gorman quickly recruiting guitarists Bill Ham and Bob Barnes, both products of Fort Worth, Texas (a geographic quirk resulting in some confusion as to the band's actual hometown). On August 16, the Yellow Payges played their biggest-ever show, appearing at the Hollywood Bowl on a bill headlined by the Animals, the Rascals and Tommy James & the Shondells; they spent much of the year to follow supporting their singles "Childhood Friends" and "Crowd Pleaser" on tour with the Animals, later spending six months opening for the Beach Boys. The band's debut LP, Vol. 1, appeared on UNI in mid-'69, generating the singles "Never Put Away My Love for You," and "Vanilla on My Mind"; "Follow the Bouncing Ball" appeared in 1970, and their cover of the warhorse "I'm a Man" (a nod to Hortter's big break) fell just two slots shy of cracking the Billboard Hot 100. Somewhat ironically, it was a campaign with AT&T that spelled the Yellow Payges' demise: hired by Wall Street advertising firm Cunningham & Walsh as part of a phone company-sponsored campaign designed to appeal to young audiences, the band was forced to appear in commercials in yellow satin ruffled shirts, effectively destroying their credibility and their momentum. After one final single, "Moonfire," the Yellow Payges dissolved in late 1970 -- Barnes later backed Kinky Friedman under the alias Roscoe West, and also collaborated with T-Bone Burnett.

The Yellow Balloon - The Yellow Balloon (1967)

Yellow Balloon's major claim to fame was that the band's membership boasted a celebrity, actor Don Grady from the television series My Three Sons, which starred Fred MacMurray. The band at one time also included Daryl Dragon, who wasn't as famous at the time as he would be a few years down the road as the male half of the popular duo Captain & Tennille. In 1967 Yellow Balloon scored its first and only hit single, which was named after the group. The band released an eponymous album that same year through Canterbury Records. In addition to Grady and Dragon, who both played drums, its membership included lead singer Alex Valdez, keyboardist Frosty Green, bassist Don Braught, and guitarist Paul Canella. 

Grady, who was born Don Agrati, played previously with the Palace Guard, a folk-rock band. Yellow Balloon formed during the '60s when he joined forces in Los Angeles with Gary Zekley, a songwriter and producer who had initially written the single "Yellow Balloon" for surf duo Jan & Dean. Zekley also released a version of the song, and when it skipped into the Top 30, he and Grady pulled together a band for live performances and put out an album. 

Grady culled Braught and Green from a band called Rising Sons in Oregon, and drew Canella and Valdez from Five of Us, an Arizona group. Grady had previously recorded their names in a list he kept of musicians whose skill impressed him when he saw them play while he toured on other business, sometimes with a band called Windupwatchband. When the time came to pull together the band that would be Yellow Balloon, he gave them a call. 

After failing to score on the charts again, the group disbanded. Grady went solo for a while and recorded as Don Agrati. Braught, Canella, Green, and Valdez re-formed under the name the Popcorn Explosion. Zekley continued to write hits, among them "Sooner or Later" and "I'd Wait a Million Years" for the Grass Roots. Sundazed reissued Yellow Balloon's lone album as a CD in 1998. The release includes all 11 songs from the original album, plus a few numbers Grady had released as singles, a demo, and a recorded interview with Zekley.

The Yellow Balloon was Don Grady's (Robbie on TV's My Three Sons) rock & roll group, but even more important, the brainchild of California producer Gary Zekley. Not unlike a Gary Usher, Zekley could grab a bunch of musicians and -- filling in the needed holes with his own talent -- produce sessions that rivaled Phil Spector or Brian Wilson for big sound and teen spirit. Grady had already been recording for the same label with his own group, the Windupwatch Band, when Zekley started climbing the charts with "Yellow Balloon," creating a need for a new group to go with the hit. Grady became the drummer and other members were recruited from various bands around the country, but in the studio, it was still Zekley's show all the way. This 20-track compilation brings together the 11 tracks from the Yellow Balloon's 1967 album, along with the Don Grady with the Windupwatch Band singles (also released on the same Canterbury label), a couple of unreleased demos, and an interview with the late Gary Zekley putting it all in perspective.

Die vorliegende Platte haben die ATTACKS als Andenken an die schцne Zeit des Musizierens fьr sich und alle ihre Anhдnger prдgen lassen. Sie will und kann kein Meisterwerk sein, denn die Aufnahme wurde spontan und nach kurzem Ueberlegen gemacht.

Es waren einmal fьnf junge Leute, die nicht nur ein Hobby hatten - die Schule, sondern auch musizierten. Jeden Samstagnachmit¬tag wurde frisch, frei, frцhlich Lдrm gemacht. Der Lдrm entwickelte sich langsam zu Musik, die fьnf jungen Leute zu einer Band. Die Geburtsstunde der ATTACKS hatte geschlagen. Der Musikwelt stand Schцnes bevor. Immerhin: die Eltern bezweifelten dies; sie hцrten die Musikbotschaft wohl, allein ihnen fehlte der Glaube! Denn: Samstag fьr Samstag drцhnte, beatete und fegte es in «lautester Vollstдrke» durch die trauten Rдume der Familien Bourquin und Herberich, geschaffen fьr samstдgliche Ruhe und Erholung.
Ein anderes Probenlokal musste gesucht werden. Rene Schmid¬lins Grossvater, Karl Schweizer, stellte sein Haus, bzw. seinen Keller, bzw. seinen Hauskeller zur Verfьgung. Nun wurde eisern und hart an jedem Samstagnachmittag gepaukt, ja an schulfreien Tagen, wie zum Beispiel am Schulsynoden¬«Fest», ganztдgig geprobt. Die technischen Anlagen liessen vor¬erst noch zu wьnschen ьbrig, aber «Kommt Zeit, kommt Apparat» sagten sich die jungen Leute, zu deutsch: «Gut (Musik)-Ding will Weile haben.»
Inzwischen war die Kunde von THE ATTACKS bereits durch die Lande gegangen. Am Konfirmandenfest der Andreasgemeinde im Bottmingerschloss spielte sich das erste Engagement ab. Im Juli 1965 folgte die Jungbьrgerfeier in Binningen, an welcher die 20jдhrigen neugebackenen Bьrger und Bьrgerinnen u. a. durch die heiteren Klдnge der ATTACKS in die Staatsbьrgerlichkeit eingefьhrt wurden.
Kennen Sie Piatti? Den Grafiker und Kьnstler Piatti? Er liess an einer Party seiner Tochter Sabine im August 1965 die ATTACKS in seinem Haus aufspielen. Das von ihm gestaltete Plakat, das er der Band schenkte, wird von den ATTACKS in hohen Ehren gehalten.
Zwischendurch bangten die ATTACKS um entliehenes Hallgerдt und Schlagzeug. Als beides plцtzlich den Besitzern zurьck¬gegeben werden musste, hiess in ihrem «Book of the ATTACKS»: Eine erschьtternde Nachricht! - Allmдhlich aber kцnnen sie sich Hallgerдt und Schlagzeug anschaffen. Inzwischen wurde behelfs-mдssig mit anderweitig geliehenen Apparaten gespielt. Im Oktober 1965 beglьcken die ATTACKS die Tanzlustigen am St.-Franziskus-Bazar in Riehen, und im November besuchen sie ein Konzert der «Kollegen Shadows» in Basel. Folgerung: THE ATTACKS wollen fortan den anspruchsvollen Spuren (lies Noten) der Shadows folgen. «Swiss Shadows!?
Eine Sternstunde im Musikleben der ATTACKS war das Enga¬gement fьr das Atlantis-Restaurant in Basel am Sylvester 1965. Fьr auswдrtige Ignoranten: Das Atlantis ist alkoholfrei und eigentliches Gymnasium-Stammlokal (nach den Schulstunden!) der Basler Jugend. Es spielen dort vornehmlich qualifizierte und renommierte Bands. Das kann sich das Atlantis leisten, weil es stets bummsvoll ist.
Im Februar 1966 (die Engagements folgen sich so schlagartig. dass der geneigte Leser jetzt wohl nicht mehr ьber die ATTACKS im Zweifel ist!?) hallten ATTACKS-Klдnge durch das Wasser¬stelzen-Schulhaus in Riehen. Rover und Altpfader hatten sich die Band fьr ihren Unterhaltungsabend gesichert ... und ... einmal im Mai bekam es Sдnger Roger mit Sing-Komplexen zu tun oder wie man sonst sagt, wenn ein begabter Sдnger plцtzlich von «Unfдhigkeit,> spricht. Aber wie so manch anderes Ungereimtes, das es nun einmal bei einer Musikformation ver¬pflichtenden Grades gibt, wurde diese kleine Dissonanz von den ATTACKERN mit Brillanz beseitigt. Roger fand bald wieder Ge¬fallen am Gesang. In dieser kleinen Wirrnis wurde Joe, der Bassist der Band, wegen bevorstehender Matur durch Alain ersetzt.

Die Riehener wussten, wo sie sich eine glatte Tanzband sichern mussten. Bei den ATTACKS. Im Juni 1966 fegten sie wiederum unter grossem Applaus im Wasserstelzenschulhaus. (Die ATTACKS fegten, die Riehener tanzten.) Und am 20. August desselben Jahres feierten die ATTACKS «in eigener Sache» happy birthday to THE ATTACKS! In echter Gemeinsamkeit und Geselligkeit gedachten die sechs jungen Leute des Geburtstages ihrer Band.

In Basel existiert ein Jugendhaus. Fьr auswдrtige Basler: Das frьhere Sommercasino (beim St. Jakobsdenkmal) wurde fьr die Jugend renoviert. Fьr Nichtbasler: Dieses Jugendhaus ist zur Unterhaltung der Jungen geschaffen worden. Es stehen Spielsдle zur Verfьgung. Natьrlich alkoholfrei. Patronat: Freizeitaktion. Hier spielten die ATTACKS im Oktober 1966.

«Kein Brot ist hart!» Die jungen ATTACKER wussten es nicht aus Erfahrung (- wir Westeuropдer leben ja allesamt in der Ueber¬fluss-Aera des 20. Jahrhunderts -), aber sie dachten an hungernde Menschen. Auf der Klagemauer in Basel spielten sie im Frьhjahr 1967 zur Freude der Basler Jugend (und natьrlich auch der an-deren Passanten) fьr die Aktion «Brot fьr Brьder» und konnten der Organisation ein nettes Nettosьmmchen ьbergeben. Kьnftig lдutete bei Manager Rene das Telefon Sturm, die ATTACKS mussten sich der Engagements erwehren ... ... bis der «Eiserne» fiel und die ATTACKS auseinandergehen mussten, da die Vorbereitungen fьr die bevorstehende Matur die jungen Leute in Anspruch nahmen.

THE ATTACKS danken Herrn und Frau K. und M. Steinhilber, den «Attackseltern», herzlich fьr ihre unentbehrlichen Hilfe¬leistungen beim Transport der Anlage sowie fьr ihre grosszьgige Gastfreundschaft.
Vielen Dank auch unsern Eltern, die immer wieder Verstдndnis fьr unser Hobby zeigten.
