The Master Cut series

The first release in the series PMC Producers Master Cut was a double CD entitled "Mondkuss" featuring 24 early recordings of Rosenstolz, some of them in alternative versions.

   

 

Rosenstolz on Tour 2006

The group was touring in Germany during spring and early summer. The show was a wonderful mix of the old and new stuff. AnNa and Peter were in high form after the "time-out" in 2005. The most fantastic thing about the Rosenstolz new show was that the very new songs from the latest album which were by that time about 2 months old had already become classics! The reaction of the audience was incredible. The forthcoming single "Nichts von alledem" was a strong number performed absolutely great by AnNa. Peter was running around and stimulated the audience to more activity. He even performed some songs - the obligatory "Die Zigarette danach" and a new one "Ein wunder für mich". The definitive highlight from "Das grosse Leben" was of course "Aus Liebe wollt ich alles wissen" and it was probably one of the strongest performances during the show. The first single "Ich bin Ich" sounded maybe a little bit mechanical as "Willkommen" - the 2004 single hit from the album "Herz" but it worked live. The group performed some songs written and recorded at the very beginning of their career and they fit very well with the new ones even if you could understand how much the group had developed as a pop act. The wonderful "Die Schlampen sind müde" and many other tracks from the 1990s were of course included and they make the audience very happy.

Both Peter and AnNa were once again a great team and there is no doubt about it that they like each other very much and work together very good. The artists were joking about their past between the songs and there were some nice dialogs during the show.

 

Nichts von alledem tut mir leid - the single"

The second single from the album "Das grosse Leben" featuring "Nichts von alledem (tut mir leid)" saw its release in 5 different versions on May 26th, 2006.
