Sung in Warsaw Poland in the kleynkunst revues, 1933

UPDATE: Three years later, I have found melodies for almost all these songs (and many more collected by Pinkhes Sapir and Itzik Zhelonek. I've recorded many of them, and I've put the whole 126+ songs into a book called Yiddish Songs from Warsaw 1929-1934. Read more at the Yiddish Emporium site I put together for my projects.

The original post read:

This is the "Inhalt" (Table of contents) from one of the little books I got copies of from the National Library in Jerusalem (at great expense!). The title means "The treasure of Yiddish theater and gramophone recordings, couplets and songs, gathered by the artist P. Sapir, sung by the best Jewish artists..." If you have information on these songs or artists, I beg you to leave me a comment!
