Foreword by Hans Dieter Czembor
...I've never forgotten the day I first saw you. It was in Dortmund, on a Tuesday, December 1, 1953. I had skipped confirmation classes. Because in the former'Café Lampion' at the castle gate René was to sing Carol. He came rolled into the Hansastrasse with his heavy American road cruiser. But he sang, you will remember, not on this day. I had glued many pictures from record brochures into my autograph booklet.
On the side next to the René Carol picture was your photo, pure coincidence. When his Chrysler rolled in front of the café and he lowered the window electrically with one hand to the centre console - that was completely new to me - I handed him my booklet asking for an autograph inside the car. "First you", René laughed and handed you my notebook. "What should I write?" you asked me with your dark voice, but you won't remember it. "To Dieter, please," I stammered embarrassed. And then I looked at you consciously, saw your beautiful red hair, your mysterious face, your bright red painted fingernails scribbling your name into my book with his fountain pen. Lilo, I still have it today.
The second time, perhaps you remember, we met again in Dortmund in June 1954. René Carol had an engagement in the then'Allotria' and lived in a small pension on the Brückstrasse. House Nölle' was the name of the shop. His street cruiser always parked a few houses away in a small parking lot. I used to stop by after school. On this June morning something was different about the car: behind the window in the front passenger seat shimmered red hair. I was curious, I knew it was you. After ten minutes you noticed me, slowly opened the door and came up to me.
"Do you know Mr. Carol?" you asked me. I felt so different. You said'she' to me, the almost fourteen-year-old in his short lederhosen. "Yes," I replied. "Where?", you kept drilling. "He's been singing here for a long time, so I know him and I've done some little errands for him, whom I adore very much. But please, Mrs. Malkowsky, don't say'you' to me, but'you' and Dieter', I asked you. "Sure, Dieter, no problem, my friends just call me "Lilo," you laughed.
Article properties: Liselotte Malkowsky: Alles steht in den Sternen
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.
