Yiddish Folk Music

I'm getting so sick of all the requests for Yiddish folk music, that I decided to cave in and post some. I got this CD eighteen years ago when I worked at a record shoppe (a quality LaserLight product!) and I've kept it over the years because there's something eerie and depressing to me about this music. I also found it pretty fucking weird. My favorite track is "Ein Mul Ti Ich Si Banaien". I have no idea what it means, but it brings to mind a father who is brooding over what a dissapoinment his son is to him. Though perhaps I am projecting.

If I Were a Rich Man

    I laughed. Nicely played!

    (And I'm loving your blog. Nicely done!)

  2. Thanks! I really appreciate it!
