Chordettes and German covers

 ·  Posted: 02/18/2009 - 9:57 am # 1
Hello,

a single from the Chordettes gives me the opportunity to present different cover variants and German cover versions of both sides. It's about "A girl's work is never done" and "No wheels". First of all, the scans from side 1 of the plate: a color cover with the corresponding vinyl, then the same picture but in black and white, again with the corresponding pane. In both cases, the second page (this is the turn of the second part of the story!) Is different from the first. With cover number three, both sides are the same - because it is a promo record of “A girls work is never done”, and so the same song is on the back too !! Actually unusual. (Hopefully I haven't caused any confusion now ...)













A fairly rare record is the German cover version by GINA and TINA: “The men are not worth that”. Unfortunately, I don't know who the two girls are. The B-side is originally from the Everly brothers.





So and now for part two: color and black and white cover of the cover pages and also with the associated plate pages. As mentioned above, both sides of the third cover are the same. "No wheels" is covered in German by Peter Frankenfeld, Gitta Lind and Christa Williams: "No car".













That was a co-production today with my junior RECORDMIKE, who contributed the American records.

I have to correct myself, I also have a second CADENCE, which has already been presented here with a cover version. By the way, I have already posted all of my Chordettes singles (CADENCE, HELIODOR, LONDON) in the forum:

and hello again ...

I also checked Gerd's Chordettes singles. Where is Mr. Sandman? And where is the medium trio? The gap can be closed ...

Greetings Ralf

Hello sandmen!
Since the medium trio only came to Sandmann in 1962 and the original is from Vaughn Monroe from June 1954 (Chordettes: 10.54; Four Aces: 11.54), there are two German single releases that are somewhat closer to the original:
ELITE SPECIAL / AUSTROTON
07 56 .... 45-A-9747 .... left center: Singing: The Sunshines right center: Das Österr. Radio Dance Orchestra headed by Carl de Groof Arrivederci, Roma (9747 A) / Lieber Sandmann (Mister Sandman) (9747 B)
HARMONA 3 D
09 56 .... 36275 .... MARGRIT SÖRENSEN - ARDEN-TRIO Dear Sandmann (Mr. Sandman) / MARGRIT SÖRENSEN - HARALD GREGOR From early to late (Meu Portugal)

Hello,
There were still a few cover versions of the
Chordettes for the German market:

LOLLIPOP:
1) Ria Solar
2) Alice Babs
3) Ernie Bieler
..and many cheap label versions

WE SHOULD BE TOGETHER (Cadence 1361):
Lolita - "I want to remain loyal to you"

NO OTHER ARMS, NO OTHER LIPS (Cadence 1361):

I had to realize with horror that the German cover version of "Born To Be With You" was totally forgotten. With the best will in the world, I cannot relate to a German version that came onto the market nine (!) Years after the original and with a completely different text.

It's not that bad, of course, but I wanted to make it a bit dramatic. In addition, the "true cover version" is now online.
