ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On January 17, 1994, Los Angeles experienced an earthquake of magnitude 6.7 which killed 72 people, injured 9,000 others, and caused $20 billion in damage. One community there responded by organizing a benefit concert where the proceeds would go to a local earthquake relief fund. My first album, "RebbeSoul" had recently been released and had success in the mainstream music world. I was invited to perform. I brought along some of my band mates to help out, especially backing up some of the other artists, among whom, was Reb Shlomo Carlebach.

There were some opening acts and then we were called up to play. At the end of our set, we played Avinu. Usually, it is a rousing and powerful piece and this night was no exception. Afterwards, I ventured out into the audience and noticed a friend motioning me to come over. As I got closer, I saw Reb Shlomo sitting next to him. My friend said, “I want to introduce you to someone,” and introduced me to a man who has probably had the most profound influence on Jewish culture in my lifetime. Reb Shlomo slowly rose from his chair, his eyes fixed on me almost in bewilderment. His mouth was open but hadn’t said anything yet. He embraced me and then said one sentence I shall never forget. He exclaimed, “Gevalt! It was from another world!” With those words, he showed what the Hassidic masters had always claimed about music – that it can be a holy instrument, connecting our world here with the one above, from the heart to the Heavens. I realized I was in the presence of someone who not only understood but lived that notion. He knew - we musicians are channels. Once we hone our skills enough, the best thing we can do is get out of the way and let the light of Heaven shine through. I was in the presence of a real holy man.

“Gevalt! It was from another world!” That is where the title for this RebbeSoul album comes from. It is entirely the music of Reb Shlomo Carlebach and It is called “From Another World.”

Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach was one of the greatest spiritual teachers in the last 100 years. People adored him from all over the world, Jew, Christian, Muslim, Hindu,... black, white, red,... young, old,... He always said he had a great wish to meet everyone, to make friends with everyone, everywhere. He touched many. He also wrote over 2000 songs and this is my humble performance of his profoundly simple yet deeply spiritual music that truly alludes to something From Another World.

WOW
This is an amazing collection of Shlomo Carlebach music presented in a totally unique way that only RebbeSoul could accomplish. In this record RebbeSoul takes the listener on a trip through different musical styles that have become his trademark. He reallly gets a chance to stretch out and show his guitar virtuosity. His searing guitar licks and infectious rythyms had me beaming with pride to be Jewish and pounding on my desk as I listened. My 18 year old daughter walked in my room and said "That is great, it's got to be RebbeSoul". Yes, she's a fan too! Do yourself a favor and get this recording......two thumbs way up, on high!!

An Amazing Recording
It is rare to find a recording that strives for such a lofty goal and achieves it. Rebbesoul strives to present the masterful melodies of the saintly Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach in a way that both preserves their beauty and authenticity, and also presents them to the modern listener in an accessible way. Rebbesoul achieves this wondrously in his latest recording "From Another World". It should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway, that the performances, arrangements, recording and overall sound of "From Another World" are, similar to Rebbesoul's previous recordings, to the highest standards, and are both highly enjoyable, and pure sonic pleasure to listen to! If you haven't already please buy this true gem of a recording!

I can listen to this over and over again!!
One thing that really strikes me about this particular album of RebbeSoul is the amount of times I can listen to it and not get fed up. It's spiritually uplifting yet at the same time gets me going. Its great to blast out loud in your car or as background music. I love it!

My family got in my car once (not religious in the slightest) and definitely never heard of Carlebach music... thought it was amazing and asked me if it was Santana! They loved it and all want a copy.

This is one great album, for all occasions, come rain or shine. I've passed it on too many friends. Not had one complaint. RebbeSoul has totally hit the mark with this talented and superb album.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT YET, SERIOUSLY, WHAT YOU WAITING FOR?

BUT IT.

YOU WON'T REGRET IT.

(I'm even willing to bet on it!)

Very, very nice.
For all of the years that I've been listening to your songs, they have been some of the best and have stayed true to the original ideas behind the first versions of the songs. Wow... just wow... keep em' coming.

Outstanding
I've been a fan of Rebbesoul's music for many years. His music exudes soul and passion. In this case Rebbesoul has chosen a reperoire from an already soulful musical composer, Reb Carlebach, and has presented it with his own unique flare and style. Soul on soul from soul equals to the ultimate WOW! This music 'from another world" will take you to another world. Lay back and listen. It's like a meditation that is inspired by a higher source and will inspire you to reach to that higher place too. Rebbesoul does not fail us with this recording. He continues to amaze!
