I first heard about this music on French T.V. when the single Oops was played it remined me of the earlier Bonzo Dog Do Da band recordings. This C.D. plays the songs that were popular in Berlin during the 1920`s when the people who could afford to had a GOOD TIME. As you would expect from Germany the recording is top notch many of the songs are just as well known here as they are in the United states. This Orchester appears to be very popular in Germany and has played in Italy and U.S.A. If you like 1920`s music this C.D. is for you.

I went to see Max and the orchestra recently and bought this CD as a result of the concert. Love the music and it reminds me of the excellent stage performance I saw.

HASH(0xa01ff864) out of 5 stars A repackaged compilation of Raabe’s 1920s style songs – with some “bonuses” to fill out the CD – lots of fun 6 Mar. 2014
By Steve Ramm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those who are big fans of Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester – a German crooner and his 1920s style orchestra – you should know up front that you may well have this material in your collection. The first 17 songs are from albums – both studio and “live” - released in 2006. 2008 and 2010 (he likes “even years” I guess”). The songs were all big hits in the 1920s and 30s and most are in English – one is in German; another Italian.. You can easily tell the “live” tracks because of the audience applause. It’s a lot of fun, if you’ve never heard them before.

For the four “bonus tracks” we move to the 21st century with Raabe’s take on Britiney Spear’s “ Opps.. I did it again” (a brief one-minute version) and Tom Jones “Sex Bomb” (thankfully less than two-minutes). Then we get the title track from his 2012 Album “One Cannot Kiss Alome” and one from his 2013 CD (issued in Europe)

The CD comes with an 8-page booklet with 3 pages of photos, one short essay and two pages of song credits. It’s a nice introduction to the fun side of Raabe and may bring in new fans (of which I am one). But if you own most of his other releases, this Cd is probably not a required acquisition.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

HASH(0xa0449c3c) out of 5 stars Seeing is Believing 30 Mar. 2014
By Harrison H. Sheld - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Aficionados of American popular music of the 1920’s and 30’s will be appreciative of the recent CD of Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester. This is a collection of twenty-one of their refreshingly orchestrated musical pieces, many previously available on DVDs, with 15 vocals by Max Raabe in English. Included are such favorites as “Singing in the Rain,” “Cheek to Cheek,” and “These Foolish Things.” The one page liner notes indicate this presentation are suggestive of what music might have developed in pre-World War II Germany without the Nazi suppression of German culture.
For those unfamiliar with Max Raabe’s style, picture a sparsely art deco appointed stage with two tiers of an evenly divided dozen musicians on the right and left side of the stage. A plain white backdrop amenable to dramatic chromatic effects sets off the players. At stage level, in front of the stage-right players, are the pianist and several guitarists/banjoists. There is an aisle between the tiers to the backdrop, at the entry to which sits a beautifully gowned lone female, a violinist. Mr. Raabe’s microphone is center stage at the proscenium. He spends most of the time when not singing leaning against the baby grand, and comes forth, dressed in tails, singing in an understated and droll fashion at appropriate intervals. Mr. Raabe’s wide-ranging voice is particularly effective because of his straight-forward approach of letting the music tell its story. The musicians, attired in formal evening wear, are each skilled in several instruments. They are totally involved and provide constant playful animation during each presentation. As such, much of the attraction of the Orchester is lost without the visual richness of a live presentation. Those unfamiliar with this “shellac style” will find this collection a rather plain rendition of many popular standards of that time. It would be enjoyably worthwhile to view one or two of this group’s previous DVD’s before purchasing this CD.

A fantastic talent. Max Raabe has a perfect voice for the songs and the orchestra is brilliant. A must for anyone embedded in the music of the 20's and 30's.
