Rarely that songs are preserved over decades in the collective consciousness of people of all ages. Especially when they are not played up and down in format radios or on TV shows day in, day out. In 1971 such a collection of songs appeared on a long-playing record without title, whose cover showed a fantastically realistic painting. Only the signet of this picture gave reference to composer and interpreter:'Arik Brauer'. This nameless record was a huge success.
These songs not only prepared the trend for interpretations in dialect language, they confronted listeners with charmingly subtle and critical-intelligent lyrics, which - dressed in a trendy garb - dealt with topics such as homelessness, war, architectural sins, child abuse, anti-Semitism, ignorance and exclusion. Really no material for the hit parade; and yet Arik Brauer achieved gold status with this LP.
Oho Halalali, Die Jause, Sie hab'n a Haus 'baut, Der Surmi Sui, Der Spiritus, Rostiger die Feuerwehr kommt - songs that have passed the test of time with flying colours. That these messages were so well received in all seriousness lies in the deeply founded humour and the knowledge of human nature of Arik Brauer, who holds up a mirror in which everyone can find himself and whether he does not immediately look away from the pointed lecture. A rarely successful combination of entertainment and posture. And the fact that all these songs are as topical today as at the time of their release speaks for their quality and (unfortunately) also for the condition of our everyday environment.
Arik Brauer', the LP, has now been released on Bear Family as a CD with the original cover and an accompanying book containing all the lyrics and showing Arik Brauer's fantastic realism.
