Thread Name: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
Subject: RE: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
No part Yiddish, I, but once or twice (in my experimental days) I made an attempt at singing a few of these songs. I recall that Theodore Bikel had a marvelous little songbook out around the early 1960's that included a number of them, along with some background. I may still have a copy. Lou Gottlieb and Alex Hassilev, of The Limeliters, both brought a lot of this material into their trio's work and did a lot to popularize it with a wider audience.
