And You Shall Know Us By The Trail Of Our Vinyl: 

The Jewish Past as Told by the Records We Have Loved and Lost

 (Random House, 2008)

 

Tuesday, November 10, 2009, 7:30 pm

Popper Theater

Free

What started out as a mutual affinity for kitschy Jewish album
covers-think Neil Diamond baring his chest hair on the cover of Hot
August Night or Barbra Streisand in hot pants on the cover ofStreisand
Superman-soon became a quest for identity, history, and culture between
the grooves of LPs. Together, Roger Bennett and Josh Kun embarked on a
thrilling journey, scouring the world to collect thousands of vinyl LPs
from attics, garage sales, and dusty archives. Pieced together, these
scratched, once-loved and now-forgotten audio gems tell a vibrant tale:
the story of Jews in America. And You Shall Know Us by the Trail of Our
Vinyl spans the history of Jewish recorded music from the 1940s to the
1980s, weaving an account that begins with sacred songs and ends with
the holy trinity of Neil, Barbra, and Barry. The LPs found here are also
a love letter to forgotten moments in Jewish American pop history,
celebrating well-dressed cantors singing Christmas tunes, Long Island
suburbanites dancing the mambo, and Chassidic prog-rockers. The music,
much of which is no longer available in any format, is brought to life
through commentary from writers Aimee Bender, Etgar Keret, Michael Wex,
and Shalom Auslander; performers Sandra Bernhard and Motown legend
Lamont Dozier; music critics Oliver Wang and Anne Powers; and TV pioneer
Norman Lear. A gateway to a forgotten kingdom of sound, the good, the
bad, and the ugly of Jewish vinyl gives this aspect of Jewish culture
the attention it so richly deserves
