Poignant.And with a voice and accent like that it would be hard to conceal her heritage...
EC, when she was starting out, she was not slim and was judged to be of plain appearance and so was made to do black-face. You are right about the voice and accent. It can only come from one city in the world.
Interesting to listen to. Strong accent and certainly a different type of voice.
A coarse voice perhaps Margaret, but so full of passion.
How music has changed!
For the better Diane?
most songs in Polish in 1950s were in the same style
Interesting observation Gosia.
Must say never have I experienced that music before but to each its own.Merle................
Not to you taste Merle? I like it and it speaks to me of a terrific musical period.
Not the sound I like to listen to, not more than once anyway. But full of feeling.
River, yes. I think it is a song you hear sung once like she sang and not want to hear it again. But I thought it was quite a good tear jerker.
I like it also Andrew.. It must have been such a terrible time when to be Jewish was almost unacceptable.
Grace, I don't know how far that went in places like New York. I am fairly sure the entertainment industry was full of Jews.
