Wandering Stars: Songs from Gimpels' Lemberg Yiddish Theatre 1906-1910 is a great cd

I'm proud to have Michael Aylward, discographer and collector of old Yiddish music, as my penpal. He and Julian Futter pooled their resources and put out this amazing collection of songs recorded before the first world war in Lemberg (now Lvov) at the longest-lived Yiddish theater in the world! It comes with a 40-page booklet of information about the birth of Yiddish theater, the establishment of the Gimpel dynasty, the history of its rise and fall, bios of the performers, and brief descriptions of the songs, some of which I'm now desperate to learn! But the words are hard to understand.

You can buy the cd at Honest Jon's online store. Amazon sometimes has a few copies.
