Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Deutsche Trucker Hits

Here's a nice CD issued probably in the 1980s by the CD Music label in Germany. It's a budget album (yes, also in Germany the budget LPs were very popular) containing cover versions of popular German so called "Trucker Hits." Country music here is played by many bands but I always prefer authentic American music because the German singers and bands often sound like a cheap imitation. However, these songs here are really nice. My favorites are "Easy Rider" (originally by Truck Stop) and "Intercity Linie 4" as well as "Ohne Moos nichts los" (both originally by Gunther Gabriel). Hope you enjoy it!

The artists of this song below are the group S.T.S. I don't know what that means and I don't know the members. Maybe someone can find out!
