Forever remembered as being the Captains favorite song in the German movie, "Das Boot", the scenes from that film were also one of the major reasons why I back in the mid 1980's aqcuired an interest in acoustic gramophones. Yes, at the age of 7 I had played and broken every single one of my grandparents' 78 records, but it was not before "Das Boot" came into my possession as a dvd, that my interest was reignited.
During the years I have only listened to the song on Youtube, being unable to find it locally, and also realizing it was quite expensive to buy online, and the idea of having it shipped through the postal service from abroad was not too tempting. I doubted it would survive, when not being shipped with other 78 records. Two weeks ago, I however was able to find a copy for sale in Belgium, at a very reasonable price, and I made a quick decision, it had to be now..or never!
Two days ago I received an sms that the record had arrived my local post office, and today I picked it up, being nervous about the outcome of this daring project. When receving the parcel, I was immediately let down, the corner of the parcel was bent, and also the parcel did not look too good. I doubted this would end in a good way!
HOWEVER, when I opened the parcel, and removed the record from the cover, it was perfect ! Luckily it was only the area outside the record that had been damaged. The record itself looks like it is hardly played, and I can't wait to play it really. It will be the highlight of this week for sure, and for everyone else, and in particular those who don't know the song, here it is..on Youtube:

J'attendrai...(I will wait), I waited 35 years to own this record, but it was well worth the waiting :clover:

Das Boot was a great movie! :D

Isn't it amazing when you finally find that special record you have been chasing forever? I had real misgivings when I saw your parcel but it ended well.

Wunderbar!

Excellent, well done! You're doubly lucky - that record had a narrow escape - that packaging was seriously inadequate. When I buy online, unless I know the seller is experienced in shipping 78s I will always insist that the seller follows one of the reliable guides. One of the easiest to point to is Robert Crumb's YouTube video on packing and shipping 78s. Sometimes I'll even offer to pay more for packing.

Oh, this is a remake of the italian song: "Tornerai" ("You'll be back")! (1933) :D Which in turn is a remake from Puccini Madama Butterfly's "coro a bocca chiusa" ;)

Sweet and dreamy.

The song's link asked to sign-in.
Here's a link that does not.
