Luftwaffe Marches. Volume Two. This CD is a continuation of the history of the Third Reich’s Luftwaffe marches and battle songs. It includes some rare and unusual pieces attributed to the NSFK (National Socialist Flyers Corps), the “free ballooning” groups [technically under command of the Luftwaffe], the Paratroop divisions (“Fallschirmjager” on cut 8), and even the song of Germany’s civilian air carrier, “Lufthansa Marsch.” All material is from original recordings of the era, faithfully transcribed to CD format. This CD includes: 1. Flieger Fanfare; 2. Jagdgeschwader ‘Richthofen’; 3. Bruno Loerzer; 4. Luftsport voran; 5. Lied der Ballioniere; 6. JU-88 Lied; 7. Jagdgeschwafer ’Immelman’; 8. Fallschirmjäger; 9. Fliegerkameraden; 10. Bomben auf Engelland; 11. Aufwärts zur Sonne; 12. Fliegersturm; 13. Fliegermarsch; 14. Lufthansa Marsch.
Oakleaf Records, founded in 1971, was the first to make these rare and often suppressed recordings available to American collectors. Over the years others have attempted, without success, to imitate our pioneering efforts. Note: These Oakleaf CDs were all made from the original audio cassettes. Apparently, the studio sometimes treated each “side” – as opposed to each “song” – as a “track”, resulting in only two tracks, even though all the songs are present.
