OUT OF THE SILENCE: SONGS OF RUSSIAN JEWRY


with Reuven Frankel, Baritone
& Lazar Weiner at the piano


FAMOUS RECORDS
FAM-1038
Circa 1970
STEREO


SIDE A:



Tzu Eins Tzvei Drai' (To 'One, Two, Three')
Shir Hamaalos (A Song of Ascents)
Shlof Main Kind (Sleep My Child)
In Cheder (In the Classroom)
Der Filosof (The Philosopher)








SIDE B:



Ahin! Ahin! (Yonder! Yonder!)

Omar Adoshem L'Yaakov (G-d Spoke To Jacob)
Shir Hashirim (Song of Songs)
Zog Maran (Tell me, Marrano)
Tsur Yisroel (Rock of Israel)



Editor's note: 1 pound of Jewry coming right up. Disc, sleeve and all. A couple of guys with overtly Jewish names banging and belting out pure musical Jewry. I can't say it really touches me but that's just because my big Polish nose is blocking the border! The Poles were also suppressed by the Russians and what do they have to show for it musically? THE CHICKEN DANCE! Brilliant!
