This review is from: Berlin Cabaret Songs (in English) (Audio CD)
This is the English Language version of the cabaret songs banned by the Nazis in the later thirties. Ute Lemper brought them into prominence, originally in German -where they perhaps sound better. The rasp of 'Raus mit der Menner" is difficult to replicate in English.
Nevertheless, this is valuable mmemorial to some gallant opponents of the Nazis and all they stood for. Much of this record is, alas, still relevant today - perhaps more so than a few years ago.
Lemper deserves much credit for her championing of these songs. If there is a German equivalent of the OBE, she should be given it.
