Today is the second day of Passover and what better way to relive the memories of last night’s Second Seder than by listening to the Texas drawl of Harold Stern, the Jewish Cowboy from Centerville, Texas?
This promotional 45 rpm record produced by the Manischewitz company features Mr. Stern speaking about his life as a Jewish Cowboy, sharing personal information about himself (he’s single ladies!), and thanking the Manischewitz for providing all the fixins that enable his family to observe the holidays in ranch country. To break up these personal vignettes, singer/accordionist Avram Grobard steps in and performs a couple of short selections.
The recording is brief, clocking in at just under nine minutes, but it is not short on entertainment value. You’ve never heard the words ‘gefilte fish’ pronounced quite like this, and that’s no bubbe maisse! Have fun listening and as always, Enjoy!
