2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. L. J. Atterbury on 20 April 2008
Format: Audio CD
Traditional German folk music has an air of exuberance and gaity about it, and, at its best, is musically irreverent. This compilation is very good, very exact, and very professional, but it has the mood of the concert hall rather than that of the beer hall, the streets, and Carnival time. It has the precise sound of the Band of the Royal Marines, and as a result it loses that essential ingredient of the music of Germany - oompah!

When I bought this CD, I was looking for German Band music, but only had a partial idea of what i was looking for. Most of the 22 tracks on this CD, are instrumental, but there are several that are accompanied by male voices. The music here, is a good overall selection, musical and well performed, with a few tunes that many people may find familiar, even if, like me, you can't quite put a name to them. The music is typical for this type of band, most of the tracks appear to be in Waltz, Polka, and March tempo. If this has a downside, it's maybe a bit too clean and nice for some people who might prefer a bit more weight to the oompha. Having said that, the music is all typically German, it's pleasant to listen to and is probably aimed at wide appeal, rather than a specialist audience. There don't seem to be too many discs of this type of German Band music around (certainly not at this price). It's probably more easy listening than Beerfest, but If you fancy some German Band music, this is a good solid intro. and is well worth a look.

I love an Oompah Band, me. This wasn't what I was looking for. Too sanitised. Not earthy enough.

A collection of German folk song standards 2 Mar. 2001
By Church History Nut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD includes several well-known German language folk song..Rosamunde is practically a cliche in the Volksmusik genre. But this isas good a rendition as you'll hear anywhere. Heidi and Schonemaid aremore folk-pop vocals; fun songs but not classics. The Snow Waltz is abeautiful instrumental classic that will get your toe tapping inthree-quarter time. The four vocal medleys are all folk songstandards sung by a youthful group of mixed voices, definitely not achoir. For those interested in developing an ear for the Germanlanguage, these songs will be good practice. The final two cuts areboth hiking songs with a brisk beat and bright, cheerfulmelodies. Those looking for serious genuine Volkmusik may bedisappointed. The vocals are sung in high German not dialect. Thereis no yodeling no shoe slapping, no zither or hammered dulcimeraccompaniment. It does include good accordion, oom-pah brass andsprited carefree vocals. All in all, this CD is a good introductionto the Volkmusik genre.
