Notes The nicest thing about this album is that all of the songs are sung in the "Mamme Loshen," the folk language of Yiddish. A Brieveleh der Mama, (Send a letter to your mother) recalls the time when a mother sent a letter to complain that she hasn't had a letter for a long time. In the medley Tchiribim, Dudu sings three of the most beloved Yiddish tunes; Tchiribim, Shetyn vi di Levoneh, and By Mir Bistu Sheyn.
