Shalom Comrade!

From the Russian Revolution to 1967, there were only about 150 Jewish records released in the Soviet Union. Officially, the religion was banned, but at the same time the state wanted to use some Jewish musicians. These archive recordings, rare documents indeed, cover the range of Yiddish music in Russia. There are folk songs, klezmer, plenty of art songs -- seemingly a specialty -- as well as Jewish cabaret material from artists like Mordkhe Gebirtig. Everything's put wonderfully into context by the exhaustive CD booklet. It's all quite specialized, but that's exactly the point. Some of these performers were gigantic figures of Soviet Jewry, globally important. This is an important album, making available some 26 of those very rare 78s, all lovingly remastered, and all as rare as hen's teeth.
