Quite a mixture!

I am delighted to have heard at last Sophie Tucker's rendition of My Yiddishe Mama, which (I read many years ago) was the occasion of an outlandish meeting in a hostel in Ashkabad, Turkmenistan, in 1932:

"As I lay on the sheetless bed, enveloped by gloom and stench,... I heard the sound of a gramophone in the next room. The record was cracked, and it played the then popular tear-jerker sung by Sophie Tucker, 'My Yiddishe Momma'. It sounded eerie in the _dom sovietov_ of Ashkabad, and I got up to find out who my neighbor was. I knocked at his door and found a young American Negro squatting in front of a portable gramophone in a bare room similar to mine, and in a state of gloom similar to mine. He turned out to be the poet Langston Hughes, whose 'Shoeshine Boy' I had read in Berlin and greatly admired...." -- Arthur Koestler, _The Invisible Writing_

Great link, thank you Shiela!
The choir I'm with is learning Erev Shel Shoshanim at the moment. The recording on the site will be great for learning pronunciation.
