[78-L] One of the Six Songs for Democracy

What was the date of the Lied der Zeit recordings?
Anyone have the Ernst Busch discography?
I thought that Lied der Zeit was post WW II - part of the Amiga label (later VEB Deutsche Schallplatte) founded by Busch??????
I have a note that the Spanish civil war records were issued by "Gramola Espana" - know nothing about them - anyone have label
There is an extensive CD series of Ernst Busch recordings on the BARBAROSSA  Lied der Zeit, Aurora labels.

Best wishes, Thomas.

Actually I did not know that, although the Soviet discs were also recut at
Reeves. And I can see why I misinterpreted the comma.

Now then, where's the answer to my other question about the "6 Songs" story?
