A blast from the past. Literally.

In searching for a cd version of my dad's favorite album ever, the Guckenheimer Sour Kraut Band's Sour Kraut in Hi-Fi, I stumbled upon an mp3 of one of the songs and had some immediate psychedelic flashbacks to my youth. I fear it may explain some things about my sense of humor and, unfortunately, some of my musical tastes (or lack thereof).

If you're brave enough, give it a listen. It's best listened to when you're about 2 good German beers into the evening. Try to stay tuned at least until the singing starts, so you can get the full effect.

Stars and Stripes Forever mp3

Shockingly, this gem hasn't been released on cd.

I was too old to be in that band! But, I remember this song fondly? from days of yore gone by in the past long ago.

Maybe we should start our own truly awful band! I guarantee I could play out of time and out of tune.

Ragtime Joe said...

Good idea. Spork could be the eefer! Can you eef with a couple of sporks?

Haven't heard that song since I was 8 years old, during the big war. Great group -- Spike Jones eat your heart out!

I think you can whistle it better than they play it.
