Lili Marlene (Disc 7)
Original release: 2006
Multiple artists. A remarkable collection honoring the story of Lili Marleen (Lili Marlene) through the well known song. Legend has it that a young soldier fell hopelessly in love with two women as he stood watch at his army base. Lili worked in a vegetable cellar; Marleen was a nurse. The soldier adored the two so much that he immortalized them in a poem which merged the women into one fantasy figure, Lili Marleen. This collection includes nearly 200 recordings of Lili Marlene in various styles and dozens of languages on 7 CDs.
