Ferdy Kauffman Salon Orchestra (Musical group)
  • Description: Instrumental ensemble, with vocal
  • Category: Instrumental with vocal refrain
  • Marketing Genre: German
  • Language: German
  • Master Size: 10-in.
  • Title Note: The 1931 Victor numerical catalog lists an abbreviated title for this catalog number. ADP editors believe that the song is "Leutnant, warst du einst bei den Husaren" from the film bearing the same name.
The performer attribution in the 1931 Victor numerical catalog entry for V-6066 lists "Grosses Salonorchester." It is possible, but not confirmed that the performing group is Ferdy Kauffman Orchestra--which is sometimes credited as "Grosses Salonorchester" or "Salon Orchestra." The Kauffman Orchestra, vocal soloist Gerhard Pechner, take date, and take place are correct for BLR5744, per Alan Kelly files, but are not confirmed for Victor issue V-6066.
Victor ledgers and the Victor blue history card have not been found for this selection. It is probable, but not confirmed that V-6066 derives from BLR5785.
