AllMusic Review by

A former DJ on a Jewish music show, Dvorin learned most of these songs from old 78s. She presents them in a revivalist style, backing herself on various instruments -- violin, guitar acoustic and electric, mandolin and autoharp among them. Hopefully, somebody is planning to issue those original 78s to add to the fairly extensive reissues of instrumental klezmer music. Meanwhile Dvorin's versions have a lot of charm. Lyrics and translations are included.
