When I Was a Boy in Brooklyn

When I Was a Boy in Brooklyn

"This record is an unabashed reconstruction of a piece of American life that disappeared between [the World Wars]," says Israel Kaplan in his "autobiography." He remembers—pulling no punches—the colorful games, sayings ("Iodine if you can see it; aspirin if you can’t."), riddles, rhymes, superstitions, epithets, taunts and insults of the Brooklyn streets.
