Nostalgia and Other Eras

Dean Reed – “the Red Elvis”

The fascinating story of Colorado music and film star Dean Reed and his life in East Berlin are recounted in this site.  His fans are determined to put most aspects of his story out for their readers.  By reading about his life and work in the German Democratic Republic, Americans in particular can learn much about life there and compare it with life in this country, at least for the creative community.  There are some parallels with the earlier life in the GDR of American classical singer Aubrey Pankey, whose story is told in these webpages.
