I am convinced that (King) M.B.D. is the original performer (MBD & FRIENDS), and all internet searches seem to agree. However, a friend of mine claims that it was originally Yerachmiel Begun/Miami. Anyone know who it was?May 7, 2018 10:35 am at 10:35 am #1517203yichusdikParticipant
I think it was the London Boys Choir, also known as the London Pirchei choir, maybe 1977 or 1978May 7, 2018 10:35 am at 10:35 am #1517205YerushalmitParticipant
it was Yerachmiel Begun – but not Miami – it was PIRCHEI TORONTOMay 7, 2018 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1517323midwesternerParticipant
First Toronto record. About 1974 or so. Soloist was David Buzaglo.May 7, 2018 2:07 pm at 2:07 pm #1517333yichusdikParticipant
On second thought, Yerushalmit is probably right. I grew up in Toronto and definitely listened to Pirchei Choir music around that time. Im probably mixing it up with a London Boys Choir album I’m sure we had at the time. And I think it may have been just a year or two before the Miami/Toronto collaboration album.May 7, 2018 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #1517460iacisrmmaParticipant
The problem with this question is that we don’t know which song he is actually referring to as there is one on
the London Unplugged album, Dov Levine on the Vchulom Mekablim album, Dovid Stein has a version on his Melech album.May 7, 2018 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #1517477on the ballParticipant
Definitely Pirchei Toronto. I still had the record a few years back . Same record as Hoireni, Modeh Ani, Urai Vonim, Al Al tiroh…..Ah I’m getting all nostalgicMay 7, 2018 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1517502

We do, because it’s the one MBD sang on MBD and Friends.May 7, 2018 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1517506
According to the back of the record, it was composed by Shlomo Zolty, and Mordechai Paul also had a solo.May 7, 2018 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1517509mobicoParticipant
1976 Toronto Pirchei. Classic album. most songs composed by Yerachmiel Begun, a very talented Bachur.May 7, 2018 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1517512
So I clarified with my friend today and he said it was Toronto, not Miami. Thanks. iacisrmma, I am referring to the one sung on MBD & Friends.May 7, 2018 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1517515
On the topic of original recordings, does anyone know if there is an actual studio recording of the song Sameyach which was composed by Mona Rosenblum and sung by MBD on the live In Jerusalem CD and HASC 5, and played by Moms on HASC 6 in a Mona Medley?May 7, 2018 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1517453FlooflooParticipant
I heardit was ripped off from Bob DylanMay 7, 2018 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1517555

It was actually composed by R’ Baruch Chait and first appeared on a Kol Salonika tape called V’somachta.May 7, 2018 11:04 pm at 11:04 pm #1517557
Thanks. That’s a good starting point. Anyone have any other information?May 7, 2018 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #1517559
Daasyochid, I just posted my comment while yours was awaiting moderation, and now that you answered my post makes no sense. Thanks so much for the answer.May 7, 2018 11:18 pm at 11:18 pm #1517565
Was your previous comment directed at the Bob Dylan post? I’m quite skeptical.May 7, 2018 11:27 pm at 11:27 pm #1517567
Yes it was. Now I’m trying to find somewhere to buy it but no one has it online.May 8, 2018 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #1517795ChaverParticipant
Didn’t Leibelle Haschel sing Vehviosim first?May 8, 2018 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #1517843MDshweksParticipant
Yes it’s from the first Toronto, and yes many songs there were from Yerachmiel Begun (at age 16-17), but not this one. Vahavioisim was composed by “Shlomo Zolty”.
BTW – It seems from the Toronto recording that there’s a third high part. Part of the choir sings the first part while other sing the high, therefore people took it to mean that it isn’t a third part but just a harmony, but I belive it was just because kids cannot go so high, and those that did, did so on “falsetto” voice…January 5, 2021 12:07 pm at 12:07 pm #1935490baronParticipant
Who is Shlomo Zolty?.did he compose other tunes?July 26, 2021 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1994717whitecarParticipant
Here is the original version of the song from Yerachmiel Begun
