Das Dritte Ohr – one of Germany’s most outstanding Bluesband is on the road since 1970, when Udo Woff (mouth harp, vocals), guitarist Tom Schrader, Boogie-Meyer (bass) and drummer Ferdi Peters came together.
Setting German lyrics to a mixture of delta blues, boogie woogie and electric urban blues arrangements, Das Dritte Ohr (translated: The Third Ear) helped to introduce German audiences to American blues. More than three decades after they first came together, the group remains one of the most influential bands in Germany.
The first German blues band to perform in the United States, Das Dritte Ohr performed several shows in Chicago in 1991. The band has continued to bring their Germanic blues to audiences around the globe. They claim to have performed more than three thousand concerts in Europe, Central America and the United States.
Formed in 1968, Das Dritte Ohr brought together three musicians — drummer Ferdi Peters, guitarist/vocalist Tom Schrader and vocalist/harmonica player Udo Wolff — who had previously toured with Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. Bass player Manfred Miller joined shortly after the band’s inception.
Champion Jack Dupree said on the Das Dritte Ohr then: ,,Believe me, didn’t know they could play the blues in Germany like!” Henry Gray gave: ,,Ladies and Gentlemen, I tell it to you right here from the stage, this band is incredibly good, I want to be put on record with them.”
Here’s the debut album of the band (without Henry), a rough diamond on cd for the very first time. Rough recordings between Capt. Beefheart and Muddy Waters. Be sure – for your pleasure!
