Did She Listen: Ted Herold and "Little Linda"

Today's song is a blast from the past. Little Linda is sung by Ted Herold, a German schlager singer who, in the early 1960s made catchy pop and rock tunes modeled after American music, as well as singing the sentimental German ballads associated with schlager music. He was initially billed as "the German Elvis" and almost exclusively sang Elvis Presley songs in German from the start of his career in 1959 until 1960. Little Linda was released as a single in 1961, with a B-side of Sie war all sein Glück (She Was All of His Happiness).
