This LP is one of the rarest releases ever made in the GDR.
6000 copies were pressed, 5000 copies were delievered in record stores. The left 1000 copies were held and destroyed.
The reason was Wolf Biermann's cooperation in the song „Die Ballade vom Briefträger William L. Moore aus Baltimore“, sung by Manfred Krug.
In December 1965, the Central Committee of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany denounced Wolf Biermann as a 'class traitor' and placed him onto the performance and publication blacklist.
The LP were never re-pressed.
