Re: Yiddish Peysakh songs

Right, as usual, Itzik!  Old Arbeter Ring hagodes.  By recitations, do you mean
straight speaking voice, or sing-songy voice?

What about Oyfn Nil and Zog Maran?  Are they also American and recent?

Does anyone else know any other Yiddish Peysakh, or any other holiday song,
they'd like to share with me?

A gut shabes, a gut yor,
