I laughed. I cried. I frantically looked through my own large record collection to find the very small number of the albums discussed within the book. Even if you have never heard of more than a tiny fraction of the musical artists discussed herein, you will enjoy the discussion of how this music/art fit within the culture. And you will dig it, even if you are not Jewish. Even more so if you are. Nah...it doesn't matter-all but Osama Bin Laden will love this book.

It's hard to imagine that a concept of LP covers could stir my memory bank. The authors have done a great research job and classified various chapters based on the covers themselves. Showing over 400 album covers and seperating them in the proper chapters was done beautifully. Fond memories of a earlier time were reestablished because of this book. Now part of my reference collection. Well done. (JAS)

I was sort of expecting some sort of examination of Jewish influences on popular music. There's some of that in this book; but mainly it seems like an excuse for some collector to photograph his collection and show the covers to anybody willing to pay for the privilege. There are some great covers, handsomely presented and solidly packaged. A nice present to somebody else, maybe; not the kind to buy for yourself, hoping to learn much.

What's not to like about a roundup of recordings of musical and spoken Judaica? The religious (virtually all musical)and the secular (about half comedy and half pop music) are covered here, along with the album art, which ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous.

Format: Hardcover
A creative pictorial collection of record album covers reflecting the rich history of Jews in America. Very enjoyable to skim through and recall the famous and the unknowns who generated so much enjoyable music and religious-cultural commentary. Sort of a coffee-table book that people will undoubtedly pick up, smile at and comment on.
