Foreword by Hans Dieter Czembor
...I have never forgotten the day I first saw you. It was in Dortmund, on a Tuesday, December 1st, 1953. I had skipped confirmation class. René Carol was to sing in the "Café Lampion" at the castle gate. He came with his heavy American street cruiser into Hansastrasse. But he did not sing, you will remember, on that day. I had stuck many pictures from record folders into my autograph booklet.
On the page next to the René Carol picture your photo was emblazoned, pure coincidence. When his Chrysler rolled in front of the café and he lowered the window electrically with a flick of the wrist to the center console - that was completely new to me - I handed him my booklet with the request for an autograph inside the car. "You first", René laughed and handed you my booklet. "What shall I write?", you asked me in your dark voice, but you will not remember that. "For Dieter, please," I stammered sheepishly. And then I looked at you consciously, saw your wonderful red hair, your enigmatic face, your bright red painted fingernails, scribbling your name in my book with his fountain pen. Lilo, I still have it today.
The second time, you may recall, we met in June 1954. Again in Dortmund. René Carol had an engagement in the former 'Allotria' and lived in a small pension on Brückstrasse. The shop was called 'Haus Nölle'. His street cruiser always parked a few houses further on a small parking lot. I often came by there after school. There was something different with the car on that June morning: Behind the window at the passenger's seat red hair shimmered. I was curious, I guessed it was you. After ten minutes you noticed me, slowly opened the door and came towards me.
"Do you know Mr Carol?", you asked me. I felt different. You said 'she' to me, the barely fourteen-year-old in his short leather pants. "Yes", I answered. "Where from?" you kept on asking. "He has been singing here for quite a while now, so I know him and I have already done some small errands for him, whom I admire very much. But please, Frau Malkowsky, don't call me 'you', but 'you' and Dieter", I asked you. "Sure, Dieter, no problem, my friends also just call me 'Lilo'", you laughed.

Liselotte Malkowsky * 09. Oktober 1913 – 16. Februar 1965 Der Name der gebürtigen Hannoveranerin wird in den 50er Jahren mit Hamburg, der Reeperbahn, romantischen Seefahrerliedern assoziiert. Erstmals während des Zweiten Weltkrieges bei der DGG/Polydor für vier Songs verpflichtet (u.a. singt sie den Durchhalteschlager "Morgen ist ja alles wieder gut", 1942), feiert Liselotte Malkowsky hier während der 50er Jahre Triumphe als Sängerin, die für ihre roten Haare und ihre dunkel-erotische Stimme bekannt wird. Polydor versucht zunächst, die Malkowsky als Gegenstück zur Schwedin Zarah Leander aufzubauen. Der Versuch misslingt. Liselotte Malkowsky setzt sich alsbald – wenn auch erst wider Willen – mit Liedern rund um maritime Themen wie "Der alte Seemann kann nachts nicht schlafen" (1951; aufgenommen mit Alfred Hauses Tango-Orchester und produziert von Sigrid Hesse-Volkmann) beim Publikum durch. Ihren nächsten großen Hit landet sie 1956/57 mit dem Lied "Das Herz von St. Pauli", das Michael Jary für sie geschrieben hatte. Damit wird die "singende Seemannsbraut" in ganz Skandinavien, vor allem aber in Dänemark ein Star.
