Rosalie Gerut & Betty Silber<something -- man? berg?> sing on Shirim's
first CD, "Angels & Horseradish".  I'm not sure which of them is on
the new CD, "Naftule's Dream".  "Angels & Horseradish" has vocal duets
on "Coney Island" and "Ich bin ferliebt", and also spoken vocals
(including a couple of lines of "Hiawatha" in Yiddish) by Moshe
Waldoks, who posts to mail.liberal-jewish, on "Trombonik Tanz".
