If you love "Das Boot" this CD is a must, but there are those among us who ask why they didn't include the Tipperary song and particularly, "What is that French song?"
Fans will remember the scene when the captain asks the radio operator to play a certain record for him. The radio man smiles and plays, "J'attendrai" by Rina Ketty, but it isn't included in the soundtrack and the producers fail to list this recording in the end credits of the film.
If you, like the captain, love this recording...it is available on Amazon.com on a great CD entitled "Les Grandes Chansons Francaises: Classic Hits of French Song" on band #3. These are recordings that helped sustain Europeans who lived through World War II and, like the captain, remind them of better times. Listen, especially, to the anthem of those days, band #14, "Parlez-Moi D'Amour" by Lucienne Boyer.
