A Carwash for the Soul
Burt Kempner | Gainesville, Florida | 10/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At one point in this marvelous CD, Reb Shlomo cries, "Let's tear a hole in heaven and let our souls rise up through it!" That's exactly what he, in collaboration with an extremely enthusiastic audience, proceeds to do. If your soul isn't moved by this recording, you may not possess one."
What a great find!
Rabbi Yonassan Gershom | Minnesota, USA | 01/20/2000

" I literally wore out my old 33 1/3 record album of this live concert, and was delighted to find it re-issued on CD. This is early Shlomo at his exhuberant best, in the days when he was just beginning to reach out to alienated Jews back in the mid-60's. Granted, it lacks the polish of his later concerts in the 80's and 90's when he was being booked for more mainstream gigs in suburban synagogues -- but if you want to experience how it all started, then buy this CD! "
Tremendous, beautiful, holy, spiritual, the best.
Rabbi Yonassan Gershom | 07/08/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the first and arguably among the best of the Shlomo Carlebach albums. It is, however,an early recording. As such, it does not include many of the stories or narratives that find their way, so beautifully onto the later albums. Still, however, it is a wonderful first taste- of what ultimately developed into a World wide revolution within Jewish music. It is an important album in every sense of the word, and should serve as a first installment on a collection. Those who are interested in further information and further exposure can and should contact any local Jewish book store- where they will also find copies of several related books-"Holy Brother," and "Shlomo Stories." An additional source of information if the Carlebach synagogue, Kehillat Jacob in Manhattan."
