The songs an not the old, familiar "standards" of the Jewish song-
writers who conquered Broadway and Tin Pan Alley fGershwin, Romberg,
Berlin, et all, but the Jewish songs about the ways-of-life, hopes and
struggles of the Jewish People in Di Goldene Medina - songs which nflect

late - either in the narration, by singing part in the original language and
part in English or by one translating in between the lines the other sings.
