Notes Pesachke Burstein, who called himself "The Vilner Komiker", is indeed at his best in this charming album of songs - happy, sad, nostalgic, melodic, and above all, sweet. He offers a collection of best loved Yiddish songs for every occasion, any one of which, or all of which, will bring a smile - or a tear - to the eye. He is a jewel to be cherished.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
