I haven't listened to these songs yet, but several of the titles ("Old Shatterhand Melodie", "Apanatschi" and "Winnetou Melodie") refer to characters from Karl May novels. Karl May was sort of the German Louis L'Amour, writing a hugely popular series of Westerns in Germany. (When I was teaching in Dresden, all of my colleagues at the university had grown up reading them.) They're terrifically fun to read, since May imagines the American West from a completely German perspective. Check out the Wikipedia link above for an intro... though it doesn't tap into the huge weirdness of the Karl May phenomenon (e.g., the festivals it references at the end).
