Abe Schwartz: The Klezmer King
(Columbia-Legacy) rediscovers 25 very
early recordings of klezmer music in
America from metal stamping plates
that were thought to have been
destroyed or melted down between the
Depression and World War II.
Schwartz, a violinist and vocalist,
was the first to record "Der Shtiller
Bulgar" in 1918. With English lyrics
by composer Johnny Mercer, the tune
was transformed into the 1939 hit
'And the Angels Sing."

Bob Dylan Live 1975 — The Rolling
Thunder Revue (Columbia-Legacy)
revisits an all-star tour that captured
the unpredictable icon in peak form,
following the release of his highly
praised Blood on the Tracks album.
Dylan performed his best-known
songs and shared duets with Joan Baez
and Roger McGuinn. Notably, nine
of the 22 tunes on this deluxe retro-
spective later appeared on Dylan's
1976 Desire album, including a blis-
tering reading of "Hurricane."

Simon & Garfunkel: Live From New
York City 1967 (Columbia-Legacy)
bows an archived concert that was
never distributed during the hit-mak-
ing duo's heyday. The event was
recorded at Lincoln Center in New
York City and officially chronicles the
pair's early stage show.
The smash successes . "The Sounds

memorable tracks, such as "Bounce"
and "What I Love About Rain."

The Essential Barbra Streisand
(Columbia) is another breathtaking
showcase of past songware that exclu-
sively dangles two previously unheard
jewels, "Someday My Prince Will
Come" and "You'll Never Walk Alone.
Sprinkled among 40 choice selec-
tions are the singer's classic hits
"People," "Evergreen" and You
Don't Bring Me Flowers" (sung with
Neil Diamond). Attractive packaging
adds rare photos and a foldout
gallery of all her album covers.

newly remastered collection of vari-
ous partnered collaborations that the
diva has done through the years.

praying and Jewish history into con-
temporary pop and rock 'n' roll paro-
dies dates back to 1985.
Twenty-one albums later, the beat
goes on, especially when enjoying
Solomon's clever rewrites of Sam
Cooke's "Another Saturday Night" as
"It's Not a Matter of Sight ('Cause
God Ain't - Got No Body)" and a
disco-ish dishing of "He Brought the
Light,',' based on the Four Seasons'
1976/chart-topper "December 1963
(Oh/What a Night)."

The Essential Leonard Cohen
(Columbia) marks the first time a
major perspective is being given to
the Montreal poet's music career. At
68, Cohen is enjoying a strong com-
mercial resurgence due, in part, to
sinking his voice into a darker, lower
register and exchanging his acoustic
guitar for electronic keyboards.
The jarring contrast buttresses a
two-disc review that highlights
"Suzanne," "Who By Fire" (based on
the Yom Kippur reading), "Bird on a
Wire," "Famous Blue Raincoat" and
four up-to-date tracks from Cohen's
last album, Ten New Songs.

"I Am a Rock" are heard, plus rarer

The Paul Simon Collection: On My
Way, Don't Know Where Bn Goin'
(Warner Bros.) updates Simon's previ-
ous best-of sets with newer material
from the albums Songs from the
Capeman and You're The One.
Fresh interest in this 19-track reis-
sue of Simon's solo milestones is bol-
stered by a limited-edition bonus CD
that premiers five previously unre-
leased live recordings of "American
Tune," "Duncan," "The Coast,"
"Mrs. Robinson" and a duet with
Aaron Neville on "Bridge Over
Troubled Water."
Meanwhile, Simon's former partner
Art Garfunkel is vocalizing anew with
singer-songwriters Maia Sharp and
Buddy Mondblock on a splendid
debut venture titled Everything Wants
to Be Noticed (Manhattan).
Melodious and softly acoustic, the
Nashville-made CD features lead
singing by each member of the trio and

ists Josh Groban and Barry Manilow
not found elsewhere.

Solid Zinc: The Turtles Anthology
(Rhino) ranks as the 1960s folk-rock
group's most comprehensive and
best-sounding compendium of Top-
40 hits, namely, "Happy Together,"
"It Ain't Me, Babe," "Eleanor," She'd
Rather Be With Me" and others.
This double-CD set packs 51
tracks and is lavishly packaged with
insightful song-by-song commen-
taries and a fully illustrated history
about the L.A. band, which was
fronted by Jewish lead singer
Howard Kaylan.

Marc Bolan & T Rex: 20th Century
Boy — The Ultimate Collection (Hip-
0) comprises a 30th-anniversary trib-
ute to the British glam-rock pioneer
who climbed the Billboard magazine's
Hot 100 chart with the 1972 Top-10
hit "Bang a Gong (Get It On)."
Jewish-born as Mark Feld, Bolan
was tragically killed in a car accident
on Sept. 16, 1977. He leaves behind
an electrified musical legacy that was
both quirky and visionary. Li
