about

Itzik Zhelonek was a bookseller and record store owner in Warsaw, Poland, between the wars. He printed at least six books of lyrics for Yiddish theater songs which were big hits at the time. Some of the songs are still familiar, but many have virtually disappeared since then; I went on a scavenger hunt to find them. You can buy the sheet music at http://yiddishtheatersongs.com...

... and now there is a book with all the songs and sheet music, available from yiddishemporium.com

Translations of all these songs are on a pdf which you receive automatically with download of the album. Thanks!
