Yossele Rosenblatt re-issues
Cantor Sam Weiss posts to the Jewish-Music mailing list:
The Cantors Assembly has recently released a 6-CD set of digitally remastered recordings of Yossele Rosenblatt (including his Yiddish recordings). The set comes with Hebrew and English texts, and indications of original recording dates. In addition, the out-of-print Rosenblatt biography by his son Samuel Rosenblatt has been reprinted.
This announcement prompted an immediate reply:
...Which reminds me of the one about the cantor who bragged that he was "the third Yossele Rosenblatt."
"And who is the SECOND Yossele Rosenblatt?" asked one member of the congregation.
"There could BE no second Yossele Rosenblatt!" scowled the cantor.
