Helmut Zacharias - Wenn der weiße Flieder wieder blüht (1962)



Helmut Zacharias. Everybody knows this man, so I don´t have to tell you much about him, right? But I have a few words for you: Helmut Zacharias was one of the greatest violinists in the world and was also known as "Der Zaubergeiger" (The Magic Violinist). He starred as a sideshow-actor in many 60´s movies, playing his violin (in Bars and Cafés in the background etc). From this famous record I´ll bring you the title track, which is one of his most famous tunes. Since I´m not a botanist, I don´t know if this plant on the cover is known to you as "White Lilac", but let´s call it so. Spring is coming soon, and so will the white lilac blossom soon. This will attract butterflies, and me and my children love to watch them in our garden. So, if you love butterflies and lilac, here´s the right tune to enjoy them. Helmut Zacharias died in 2002, but his violins will live on...

The album released in 1962 by Zacharias & his Twist-Fiddle called "Super Twist" (Polydor 46 610) is my personal favourite... although he did make many albums, in many styles. (Six more are shown on the back of the "Super Twist" LP.)
