ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Available for the first time on CD, the ORIGINAL versions of the Best of Leo Fuld. Many of these songs have never been available since their original release on 78 rpm recordings. Included in this compilation you will find many of Fuld's original hit compositions in Yiddish as well as 2 songs that he composed in honor of the young state of Israel in Hebrew!The booklet notes were written by Mike Burstyn, who as a young child in the Yiddish Theatre, befriended Fuld. This CD is a must have for all Yiddish Music fans.
Prior to WWII, Leo Fuld was one the the most popular recording and concert artists in Europe. Possessing an instantaneously recognizable voice, Fuld recorded throughout Europe in many languages, including Yiddish, German, Hebrew, French, and Dutch. While in exile in England like so many of his Dutch contrymen, he learned that his family was killed in Aushwitz, and refused to ever sing again.

It was while visiting the DP camps in Europe that he was handed a song 'Vi Ahin Zol Ich Geyn" that he promised to record. Fuld is credited as co-writer of this song which he made into an international hit. Fuld would eventually sing the song on such American radio shows as The Frank Sinatra Show, The Milton Berle Show and the Perry Como Show and otherartists such as Ray Charles and Steve Lawrence were to record his song. Among his greatest fans were such stars as Al Jolson and Edith Piaf.

His career after the war once again made his name popular throughout the Jewish world, and on the most prestigious night club and concert stages.

THE LOST WORLD OF YIDDISH SONG
If you have the same kind of old-country Jewish roots as I do, you ought to know about Leo Fuld (1912-97), arguably the best interpreter of Yiddish music ever. A Dutch Jew with a unique and sweet voice- half cantorial, half Crosby- he was a boy cantor at 14 and worldwide star at 21. This CD features his distinctive and moving renditions of venerable Yiddish standards, with a couple of Israeli tunes added. "Where Can I Go" (the English title), the title track, was a million-seller in Jewish communities from Boston to Buenos Aires following the Second World War- Fuld's signature and a haunting unofficial Israeli anthem for survivors. Fuld continued to record well into his 70s and 80s. If this music was part of your roots- or, in my case, your grandparents' roots- you ought to check out these long-lost recordings and hear how these schmaltzy old tunes should be done. It's like entering the lost world of the Yiddish theater.

Great! Wonderful memories of my youth....
This CD brings back wonderful memories from my early childhood. Hazemer Hachalom was the first song I remember to have heard as a child from my fathers taperecorder. I am now 47 and have looked for this song for years and years. I found it now, and I am very happy. Of course, the rest of the CD is also great, but this song represents my best memories.
