Say hello again to the Dual 1004 D. Equipped with a flip-over stylus cartridge, it´s well-suited for 33 or 45 rpm microgroove records as well as for the old 78 rpm ones made from shellac. You´re going to hear a song you might already know: "Lili Marlen" (sometimes typed "Lilli" or "Marleen" or even "Marlene" ), sung in German by its one and only original performer: Lale Andersen.

Lili Marlen originally was a poem, written by German teacher Hans Leip in 1915. It was set to music twice: The first time in 1935 by Rudolf Zink without major success, the second time by Norbert Schultze in 1938, of which the latter became the legendary version. It was recorded for the very first time on 2nd of August 1939 at the Electrola studios of Berlin by Lale Andersen and the Bruno Seidler-Winkler Orchestra (according to http://www.lale-andersen.de ).

Sorrily the record is somewhat worn out which leads to rather loud cracking souds. Please note: What you see and hear in this moment is obviously a copy of the ORIGINAL stamping of this record (Electrola 6993), pressed in 1939 as "Lied eines jungen Wachtpostens (Lili Marlen)" a few years before the song became famous in the whole world, simply named "Lili Marlen". Even more interesting could be the fact, that the subtitle on its label appears to be misspelled "Marien" instead of "Marlen". Anybody ever heard of this "printing error" edition? If so, please contact me.
