The Belvederes ‎– Come To Me Sweetheart

Mac Records ‎– M-127 [1987]
Come To Me Sweetheart / A Little Romance

I don’t know much about the Belvederes. I suppose they come from Germany and consist of two boys and two girls. Both songs are credited to Edgar Kemsies, so I guess he must have been one of the band members. To my knowledge, this single is the only legacy of the band, reaching a grand total of three minutes and thirty-four seconds. The Belvederes mixed Rock’n’roll and doo-wop for a result in the style of the Jets, the Keytones or Crazy Legs. Both sides are very pleasant but way too short and one can only regret they never released any other recordings.

The Marvenells ‎– Hip Hop Baby

Mac Records ‎– 134 [1996]
Hip Hop Baby / All Day, All Night
Another German Rockabilly band. The Marvenells were Bernhard Ballweg on vocals and guitar, Thilo Pieper (Firebugs) on vocals and guitar, Ralf Becker on upright bass, and Michael Larisch on drums.
A side is a swingin’ Rockabilly with a hot double bass solo. All Day All Nite is more rural bop with nice vocal harmonies and nice pickin’ too.
