CD Reviews

No longer have the 8-track
Robert Davis | Stanwood, WA USA | 07/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had this release "many" years ago and was delighted to see it available on CD. 101 strings is not just elevator music. The execution of the songs on this release is spectacular, decades after the original release. Pop a few dollars for this and be amazed. You won't be sorry."
Not a "Sould of Israel"
Herzog | United States | 04/09/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Whole CD sounds like background music to theatre/movie show. Music is putting you on the stage, but no show...
Not a "main course" as I expected. Songs are deformed and overdramatized to fit classical music mold. I don't think one sould of Israel was involved in making of this CD.
I much rather listen to Israel orchestra than to this strange 101 strings medley."
Great to see this available again!

"This is an absolutely great album that I once borrowed from the library on vinyl, but could not get for myself because it was out of print. How wonderful to see it re-released on CD! These are traditional Jewish tunes - of both Yiddish and Israeli origins -- that hearken back to the earlier, more idealistic days when Israel was just beginning to make the desert bloom. I'm ordering one right now!"
