Sometimes a CD comes out of left field to astonish you. Metropolis Shanghai: Showboat to China, which essentially documents Shanghai in the 1930s, is one of them. You don't need words to build up the picture; the music, perfectly chosen and performed by modern artists, does the job. "Ye Shanghai" is a recurrent theme, a bellwether of mood from contentment to despair. Another facet that's exposed is the Jewish settlement in Shanghai, where 20,000 fled from the Nazis in the 1930s (it was the only place in the world they could go without a passport), creating a community with.

Metropolis Shanghai - Showboat to China" is the sound story about the "Paris of the East", about the "Whore of Asia", about the "Golden Era" of the greatest city in Asia in the 1930s and 1940s, about the most cosmopolitan place on earth, about the port of last resort for the Jews, about the fully-controlled Japanese base after the second. Shanghai was one of the most extreme places that ever existed, full of speculation, entertainment, hunger, shelter, sex, death, life, war, hope, drugs, despair, business, and poverty. Shanghai was the worst and the best of everything. The city of quick money and masses of incredible poor people, every day dead bodies were laying in the streets, and girls sold themselves to survive and earned venereal diseases. The "Golden Era" was a very cynical name for that time period, only few winners and rich people created their own "Paris of the East" in Shanghai.
