    any jewish music buffs here know who produced those records? who composed the songs? i think r. baruch chait comp. some of them, like the most famous ‘kol haolam kulo …”. but what about the rest? theres the famous “ma ahavti torahsecha” etc.

    Yes, R’ Baruch Chait produced the Kol Salonika albums and composed many of the songs.

    Ma Ahavti is credited on the album back as an “Israeli Chassidic Song”.

    The sound is supposed to be Greek. Salonika is a Greek city with a rich Jewish history.

    Some Google searches on; I think it’s because Avram Pengas was the lead guitarist. He was born in Athens. The series are titled ‘the new chassidic Greek sound’.
    There is something written about Salonika on the vinel jacket but resolution is too low to read.

    There is a YouTube channel by the name of “Al Neustadter.” This channel has a # of old Jewish LP’s uploaded with the record labels. You will find Kol Salonika there with far more details within the video.

    I don’t know why greek- but I do know that a Rosh yeshiva (I don’t remember his name) asked R Baruch Chait to produce Kol Salonika so that the bochurim would have something else to listen to besides the Beatles which were very popular at the time of Kol Salonika’s production

    Beatles were disbanded by the time KS was recorded and released. As great as a record it was, I don’t know why anyone seriously into the Beatles would be persuaded.

    At one time the Jews were so dominant in Solonika that the port was closed on Shabbat. It was also the temporary home of Rav Yosef Caro before he made aliya. Almost the entire community was murdered in Auschwitz.

    The song Ma Ahavti is a Skulener one,
    & not all of the songs were composed by Reb Boruch Chait,
    But all in all the KOL salonika albums are still a pleasure to listen to, unlike today’s music (which is not to MACH AVEK) you can listen to them again & again and……… Again
