"Of all the many collections of Yiddish music I've heard, this one is by far my favorite. Sung by some of the greatest artists that have graced this earth, the choice of songs is also wonderful, with many of the most beautiful melodies of the genre, all on one CD.The artists:
The superb Jan Peerce sings on 8 tracks: The glorious "Vu is dus Gesele" and "Tog Ein, Tog Eis" ("Sunrise, Sunset" from "Fiddler on the Roof"), among them.
Natania Davrath, who's heavenly voice defies description, sings on 5 extraordinary tracks. Her interpretation of "Rozhinkes mit Mandlen" is sublime. Your heart will melt with the sound of her voice.
Leon Lishner, who might be remembered as one of the 3 kings in "Amahl and the Night Visitors", sings on 4, with a solo piano accompaniment by Lazar Weiner. His smooth bass voice is marvelous, and very moving.
The versatile Martha Schlamme sings 3. "Margaritkelech" is a delight.
Herschel Bernardi sings 2, and these are live recordings, full of joy and energy.
The legendary Shoshana Damari sings the lovely "Yome, Yome".The booklet insert, though without lyrics, has the history and meaning of each song, and a brief bio of the artists. Recorded between 1960 and 1967, the digital transfer to CD is excellent, and with a total time of 76:51, you get a lot for the price.
If you like Yiddish music, this one's a must, to own and to treasure."
