StanisŁaw Wielanek

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores Stanisław Wielanek's recording of Yiddish-tinged 'oldies' Party na Nalewkach (A Party in Nalewki Street). Released on vinyl in 1980 and later available on cassette, until recently the album was hard to find in either format. Whatever the reason for its disappearance, Wielanek's album has now reappeared on CD with a new cover and title, and with five new selections added to the earlier version's sixteen. Aficionados of Jewish popular song will find a veritable lost continent of fascinating repertoire attractively arranged and performed by Wielanek and his band, Kapela Warszawska. Something of an archaeologist and troubadour, Wielanek first discovered the genre of szmonces as an ardent collector of musical folklore from Warsaw. The encounter was inevitable, since, as Wielanek says, Jewish songwriters dominated the field of popular music in Poland between the wars.
