Musical Break for Saturday

It's a long time since I thought about the Israeli singer Matti Kaspi, a favourite of mine from long ago. Mick Hartley's post about Gilberto Gil reminded me, both because Kaspi had a very fruitful "Brazilian" phase in his career, as well as the deadpan, low-key style of singing.

So here are three songs:

Veotach (And you...or: After you left)

I didn't dream you would leave me... (This version performed at the Memorial Service of the song's lyricist, one of Israel's greatest artists, Ehud Manor who had passed away all too soon from this world).

Eliezer Ben Yehuda
(With Hava Alberstein and the Parvarim Duo)

Over the past 2 years guyal11 has posted many hundreds of clips from artists of that generation on youtube, in the "Israeli Oldies Channel". If you haven't done so already, check them out.
