German Schlager group info:
The group was formed in 1964 in Knittlingen, Baden-Württemberg consisting of Manfred Durban, Claus Backhaus, Franz Halmich, Manfred Mössner, Manfred Hehl and Hans Springer. They called themselves the "Dancing Band," and one year later renamed themselves the "Dancing Show Band." Hans Springer was soon replaced by Bernd stallion. In 1967 Olaf Malolepski replaced Manfred Hehl.
In 1969 the group released their first single Weine nicht, kleine Eva under their new name, Die Flippers. The song enjoyed great success on Schlager radio. Their second single, also from their debut album, entitled Nur mit dir allein was released, but did not match the success of Weine nicht, kleine Eva. Not long after, the group released their third single, Sha La La, I Love You which was also a great success, and is now considered one of their trademark songs.
In the following years the group released numerous albums and quickly became arguably the biggest Schlager group of the early 1970s. In 1973, the group started working with producer Jean Frankfurter. In 1974, Claus Backhaus left the group.
