"Country Music" from behind the Iron Curtain....

It sure sounded "Country" (with the canned applause and everything) and must have given GDR citizens a similar feeling as when watching Marlboro commercials on West German TV -- even though hardly anyone could understand the lyrics and despite the fact that in 1985 none of the musicians were likely to "ever play in Texas" and that it was next to impossible in the GDR to be "a thousand miles away from home waitin' for a train"....

I'm told (from a reliable source at WikiLeaks) that a take of "Don't Fence Me In" was attempted, but aborted by the Stasi "observer" in the studio....
