Tip Records

The Tip label always stood in the shade of its big sister label Polydor. Quite unjustly – for the label with the blue dot over the i released cover versions of current Schlager hits, played by renowned musicians. And a wide range of music from Classic (Beethoven, etc), Marches, Opera, Musicals, Beat, Disco Hits, Songs of Vienna Music, Folk Songs, Volkslieder, to Jazz and much more.

Often disdained and underrated: Tip, the legendary budget label from Hamburg – (not to be mistaken for Europa-Tip). The label was founded by James Früchtnich in the early 60s as a subsidiary of Polydor. At that time there was no interest in a budget series at the head office, and so these productions were outsorced. Many listeners are not aware that these productions were not re-releases of existing Polydor recordings, but new recordings exclusively for Tip. The repertoire included beat, soul, Schlager and dance music.

The recordings were issued in EP and LP format. Interesting fact for collectors and researchers: many of the recordings were made under pen names and have now become very sought-after rarities. Their outward appearance reflects the fashion of the times. The covers show neutral photographic motives: party mood, landscapes, models – whatever seemed to suit the music.

However to fit with the changing trends within the music scene the music will be available on-line as downloads or streaming.
