Catalogue Note

"In memory of peace time, which will soon be with us again, a little dance music."

Jakob the Liar (Columbia, 1999) "tells the story of a Jewish shopkeeper living in Poland under Nazi occupation, who tries to rally his townspeople with fantastical, falsified tales of a radio he says he has and whose broadcasts predict their imminent rescue by a Soviet invasion force."  This gramophone was used in the scene where Jakob plays "Beer Barrel Polka" and dances with Lina.
