Oy iz a foter

Oy iz a foter

Date

1955

Description

[Note from tape log on outside of tape box for the original, spliced tape, not included on the tape log of the dupe:] My childhood in Montreal, Canada, is closely bound with my Yiddish education in a secular Jewish school. Many of these rhymes stem from that environment, as well as the one at home, where my Bessarabian-born mother, shared her own childhood memories of games and rhymes and taunts and teasers, with me. Blessed with a retentive memory...I later picked up many more from my informants. 41842

Ay-lye-lyu-lye-lyu-lye (Nor a mame)

Date

1955

Description

“When I was collecting in Montréal in 1955 and 1956, the Université de Montréal, assisted me with some recording apparatus and tapes. I thought the tapes were blank, but it turned out that they had been used by the linguistics department. Consequently, previous sounds are audible ‘under’ my own recording.”

Friling

Date

1955

Description

[Note in typewritten tape log inside box:] Nos. 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 are to be found in Kaczerginsky’s collection: “Lider fun di getos un lagern,” published in New York in 1948. This remarkable collection, attests to the living importance of these songs, as they were obviously retained by the singers above, which include people who actually survived the German occupation, and others who learned the songs from them. In 1948 I was still gathering material on “home-made” recordings, which were later transferred to tape. This accounts for undue noises, etc.
