Not really. Somewhat scarce perhaps on just that issue but these yellow label DGG records are around out there. I have a pile of them. Very well recorded with quiet surfaces.


That's what's sometimes referred to as 'Tulip label' DG. Some of those earlier Tulip label LP's will set classical LP collectors hearts a-flutter, not too sure about the 78's. I don't run across DG 78's very often but I have a few.

Here is one of mine, a less common label, approx. 1942-45.

This one bares the rubber stamp of approval by the occupying forces for not having an ideological taint.

Here's a Nazi-era record that may be of interest. I'm still waiting for it in the post so don't know how it plays yet.

It's a Telefunken label of the song Horst-Wessel Lied (and another song, labelled ''Märkische Heide'') , which was infamously the anthem of Nazi Germany from 1933-1945. This record was released on 5 April 1933, exactly one month after Hitler's Nazi Party came to power in Germany in the aftermath of the 1933 Reichstag Elections. This song would have been a popular patriotic song played by many people in Nazi Germany on their players. After Nazi Germany was came to its demise in 1945 this song was banned by the Allied Powers and most of the discs with this song on them were destroyed. This example is a rare survivor. It was purchased online from an American seller, so perhaps it was taken home as a souvenir by a U.S soldier in WW2? Certainly there is an interesting story behind this record, which is why I bought it.

If there is such a thing as an extremely desirable NAZI record, it would be a Patria label picture disc of Adolph... very rare because most of them were destroyed and Germans are not allowed by law to own them. If one surfaces, it would fetch in excess of $1,000 to a knowledgeable collector. Like many other rare items, it has been reproduced, although not exactly like the original, probably by neo-NAZI wackos...

Charlie and His Orchestra records, as mentioned previously, are interesting because of the way they were used. They were broadcast from Hamburg as propaganda to England and to Allied troops stationed in Europe as a means of breaking morale by using songs of the day and changing the words to reflect NAZI superiority or anti-semitic sentiment or to mock Allied leaders...

The Comedian Harmonists, though popular in Germany before and during the war, were not in any way associated with the NAZI movement, since they were a group that included Jews. This makes a very strange and hypocritical situation, since many German people including NAZI hierarchy enjoyed the music, but would probably have transferred them to a concentration camp, if given the chance...

If you are interested, their history is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comedian_Harmonists

I don't know if it is an interesting record but it was issued in 1936 during the olympics. It is a 12" Telefunken record.

That's a really fascinating label design Francois. Thanks for sharing.
