  • The Idelsohn Society is proud to announce that our latest album, Songs For the Jewish-American Jet Set: The Tikva Records Story 1950-1973, will be released on November 22nd. Here’s a sneak peak at the album cover.


    The album is a curated collection of the best of Tikva Records, the flagship independent Jewish record label of 20th century America. Founded in 1947, Tikva’s catalog was wide-ranging; everything from Israeli folk songs to Jewish-American swing, from klezmer pop to cantorial singing, from Catskills comedy to key [political speeches of Jewish leaders- and it became something of a “Jewish Motown”, home to the Jewish music world’s biggest names. This album celebrates the label’s sound and the stories behind it.

    The album features tracks by Leo Fuld, Leo Fuchs, Martha Schlamme, Marty Levitt, and others, including our signature extensive liner notes with an introduction by legendary Sire Records founder, Seymour Stein.
