Which albums are really good, but aren’t well known?
I think “Return of the London School of Jewish Song” is one example.June 28, 2017 1:07 pm at 1:07 pm #1306242JosephParticipant
Doesn’t everyone have different tastes in music? Your garbage are my gems.June 28, 2017 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm #1306419

Thats why I asked! If everyone had the same taste, I would know already!

There was a series of albums called ‘Destiny’ by Eli Nathan, similar in style to Journeys. Great albums that slipped under the radar.June 28, 2017 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #1306588JosephParticipant

Take note of previous post. Chuckled? Good. Now, here are mine:
Yanky and Shabbos
Boruch learns about Shabbos
Those two have made a big comeback in my life in recent years, and lots of people here think they’re underrated.June 29, 2017 11:09 am at 11:09 am #1307285
I know Yanky at the Pesach Seder is a classic. Yanky and Shabbos isn’t? Isn’t that the one with the Challah Lady and Shabbos Queen?June 29, 2017 11:15 am at 11:15 am #1307319ubiquitinParticipant
Destiny and Journeys are quite different
Though I’ll grant there is SOME overlap for example the Country Boy song on Journeys 4 sounds like should have been on DestinyJune 29, 2017 11:21 am at 11:21 am #1307329MenoParticipant
Journeys is much better than Destiny.
No questionJune 29, 2017 11:23 am at 11:23 am #1307339🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
I loved Yanky and Shabbos and got myself a copy even though I was single and in my late teens. I didn’t let my kids listen to it tho because of some poor ‘middos modeling’ in the script but I played the songs. Baruch learns about Shabbos is another great one that we played a lot over the years.June 29, 2017 11:23 am at 11:23 am #1307346🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
ubiq – I LOVED destiny and Journeys! I probably know every song on those albums by heart but I doubt I would be able to tell you which album they are on.July 5, 2017 6:26 am at 6:26 am #1310600
I don’t know if they’re under-rated, but I like Camp Sdei
Chemed’s “Around the Shabbos Table” zemiros albums.July 5, 2017 9:59 am at 9:59 am #1310690DaMosheParticipant
DY, was that London album the one with “The Forgotten Princess”? I think that’s an awesome album!July 5, 2017 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm #1311484
No, that’s not the one I’m referring to.July 5, 2017 8:50 pm at 8:50 pm #1311525DaMosheParticipant
DY, I checked the album. I had that as a kid. Never liked it that much. I’ll try listening to it again.July 5, 2017 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #1311537
Never liked it that much.
Thank for demonstrating that it’s underrated. 🙂July 5, 2017 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #1311544oyyoyyoyParticipant

Gershon Verobas variations 1 is pretty underratedJuly 8, 2017 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm #1313158hujuParticipant
The Jewish music I hear in kosher supermarkets (the only place I listen to it, because I have no choice) cannot be underrated.
And, mods, didn’t I have another post? Did you take it down, or did it fall off? Or am I hallucinating about a post I did not post?
Hallucinating.July 10, 2017 6:35 am at 6:35 am #1313980July 10, 2017 11:19 am at 11:19 am #1314149Yserbius123Participant
I used to like Variations when it was one of two tapes in my bunk at Camp Rayim (the other was MBD’s “Yerushalayim We Will Never Leave You”). I tried to go back to it when I was older and couldn’t stomache the music. Partially because it’s just not as good as Abie Rottenberg, partially because it’s all goyishe songs with a few lyrics changed around to sound a little more Yiddish.July 12, 2017 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #1316945
They’re called parodies, pufflegrap.July 13, 2017 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1317496SolaroParticipant
Let’s face it: most Jewish music nowadays comes straight from goyishe songsJuly 13, 2017 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #1317524

People like to say that, but I’m pretty sure it’s statistically untrue.July 13, 2017 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #1317561
Actually, they’re not all called parodies. Some
have no (easily observable) humorous intent.July 14, 2017 12:26 am at 12:26 am #1317577
Some of them are just plaigiarism, but the good ones are parodies and the bad ones are irrelevant.July 14, 2017 12:41 am at 12:41 am #1317594
Can you name some that you consider good ones?
