Daß Wir Keine Anderen Herren Brauchen... Sondern Keine!
(That we don't need to sleep with anymore men ... unless ugly!)
(translation correction thanks to anonymous)
Another installment in the big beautiful bottomless barrel of folk-rock of the seventies, this time from Frankfurt, Germany, mainly sung by a female singer, Margrit Stanzel. She and Dieter Stanzel perform vocals and the latter plays guitars, mandolin, as well as flute (or what sounds like a recorder actually) and percussions.
They are assisted by Roland Schwarzer on guitars, mandolin, harp, voice; Helmut Stichel on basses; Hans-Peter Lamb on keys and trumpet, and Gerhard Pomp on perc.
Note that many of the songs are traditional folk tunes (tracks 2-5 and 8-10), despite this I think they interpret them quite beautifully. There is a lot of variety in the arrangements -- for ex. track 8 (the namesake Wunderwald) is introduced with accordeon and electric guitar, then a piano gently arranges itself around the chords. Unusual for this style of folk.
I include as samples track 3, called "Mein Vater Wird Gesucht" i.e. my father is re-died again, song is about big mistake in reincarnation head office, he is reincarnated accidentally as a T Rex, then is brought back as David Hasselhoff the great singer to compensate. They made this into a sitcom in the eighties on german tv. They alternate scenes between father yelling at his teenage daughter and her boyfriend and T rex eating different stegosaurs. Track 8, Wunderwald, is about german theme park for children relating to beer set in a big brewery (e.g. kids have water park slides into lager, the roller coaster followed the pipes from one barrel of wheat beer and dunked the kids into another beer barrel, etc. It has since closed due to european union hygiene rules and standards relating to swimming in beer.)
