Notes & Reviews:

The American Yiddish musical theatre, a vibrant expression of the immigrant experience, became famous during its heyday in the 1920s-1940s. Combining the musical flavors of Viennese operetta, Tin Pan Alley, and eastern European nostalgia, these songs and duets are quintessential American popular music - with a Yiddish voice. Volume 1 spotlights the hit songs of Abe Ellstein, one of the genre's premiere songwriters.
