AllMusic Review by

This gloriously rich, marginally weird, truly wonderful compilation roams even wider than the title suggests (it adds Berlin and London), from Cantor Sirota to Molly Picon to Sophie Tucker from comic theatre duos to the "Partisan Song." A few cuts (Leo Marjane's "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön," Benny Goodman's "Shirt-Tail Stomp") are reaching, but so, in context, what? Great notes are included, too.
