Jews on Vinyl

Jews on Vinyl 
 
The exhibit's over, but you can still read about it:
http://www.skirball.org/index.php?option=com_ccevents&scope=exbt&task=detail&oid=43

 
"Jews on Vinyl spans the history of Jewish recorded music from the 1940s to the 1980s, weaving an account that begins with sacred songs and ends with the triumvirate of Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, and Barry Manilow. Set in a retro 1950s-style living room equipped with listening stations, the exhibition features a soundtrack of LP highlights—much of it no longer available in any format—providing an unprecedented opportunity to experience lost moments in American Jewish pop history and new perspectives on Jewish identity. Complementing the music will be an abundance of often kitschy and surprising album art to discover and enjoy! "

And I have a copy of the Irving Fields Trio album "Bagels and Bongos."
