Though I believe Come Org.'s intentions with the Nazi/Fascist speech overdubs may have been well intended in order to add something to the LP, if they did without Maurizio Bianchi's consent or only to provoke then I think that was wrong. Either way, I do believe wholeheartedly that the Hitler-speeches and other singing that are dubbed on top of "To Birkenau" certainly seem to take away from the song, though it is still very affecting. But at times Hitler's voice can become very distracting. Still, all the Leibstandarte material is worth a note for the oddity of it, and because like most of Maurizio Bianchi's work it lacks a peer.

"William Bennet told me - in 81, the first and last time I met him - that Steve Stapleton drew up a "joke" contract for him giving Maurizio absolutely no rights to the recording in any way whatever ever, which Maurizio happily signed."

The tracks of this album had been treated by an additional overlay of original propaganda speeches by Top-Nazis from the Third Reich (- for instance Hitler's "unofficial" and somehow belated "declaration of war" against Poland [September 1st, 1939] - pronounced in the German Reichstag in Berlin when the invasion of the Wehrmacht on this country was already happening since hours! -).
However, this supplementary "gimmick" was not instigated by MB - it was just a dubious idea of the "Come Organisation"...: This and the naming "LEIBSTANDARTE SS" happened after the tapes had been delivered by Maurizio... - he did not give the "Come Organisation" the permission to use Nazi-speeches and he also was unhappy with the fascist "Schutzstaffel"-name for his record...!!!
MB thought the "Come Org."-label would be engaged here in a silly, somehow pubertarian "Nazi-Flirt" and therefore saw his reputation being endangered.
As a consequence Maurizio disowned "Triumph Of The Will" as his first LP and honoured his second longplayer to actual start his official vinyl discography...!!!
