Product Description
Theodore Bikel is one of the most important folk singers of the recording era, and during his legendary tenure at Elektra Records, he recorded a multitude of albums exploring virtually every nook and cranny of the ethnic folk music canon. But it is his three Yiddish recordings 1958's Theodore Bikel Sings Jewish Folk Songs, 1959's More Jewish Folk Songs and 1964's Theodore Bikel Sings Yiddish Theatre & Folk Songs that have remained the most sought after albums in his vast catalog, treasured by record collectors throughout the world. This collection previously available in a hard-to-find limited edition version consists of 26 freshly remastered songs from these three original albums, with notes by Theodore Bikel and producer Jac Holzman, the man who brought him to Elektra Records. And this Treasury is not just for those conversant in Yiddish the booklet also includes the lyrics in phonetic Yiddish with English translations. Important recordings by a true master and living legend.
