I was expecting a bit more in the method of polka's. I think I should have been more observant of the word "medley" . Fitting 48 pieces of separate polkas into 2 tracks was not what I wanted. The fault is mine for my ignorance.
It is in my cd player in my automobile and it goes on everywhere i go, Continually! It is amazing and i love that old ompah and accordian stuff. It's the best traveling melody i got. It came on time and in geat condition and the price was just right. Thanks so much.
This just sounds so canned. It uses just a really primary drum machine the whole time (the beat doesn't even change) and it's just like one verse of each song. It seems like such a amazing concept for an album, but the execution is awful.
Perfect collection of Polka songs by the artists that created them great. The album includes songs by Frankie Yankovic, Jimmy Sturr, Myron Floren, and Whoopee John. Some songs sound a small quaint, in the old fashioned way, but the others are full of Polka energy. I especially like: the Clarinet Polka, Just Because, Helena Polka, and of course, Who Stole The Kishka.
I use it at the gym and it keeps me moving, plus singing, plus toe is is a quality CD. It's a medley of some of his greatest hits and well azon is the greatest. They promptly corrected a issue I had and covered all expenses to fix. Thank you Amazon. I always store with confidence through you.
I really have fun the melody of Jimmy Sturr ! The medley of songs on this CD is amazing and it's my "go to first" when I'm in the mood for a "pick me up" ! My largest disappointment is not hearing a full ver of the Ballroom Polka. It's my favorite, and it's a "tease" on this CD. We belonged to a Polka Club for a lot of years and I had the pleasure of meeting him in person. No one wanted the night to end !
This is one of those "various artists" CDs formed by stringing snatches of old recordings together. One track, supposedly a medley, seems to have been made by splicing two Frankie Yankovic tapes from the 1950s. I remember that track from a... vinyl LP, by unidentified artists, from about 1970. It's not all that bad, though. At least the recording quality is decent. And "Little Green Men Polka" has some funny lyrics and a catchy tune.
This album includes a lot of well known Polka songs in it but for my taste it has too much horn section in it. I prefer the Texas style of Polka Melody with more guitar and accordian in it. If you have fun the clarinet or saxophone or the huge band sound you will probably have fun it.
Well, our families and mates love music, song, and dance, and listening, singing, and dancing, round and round with our a lot of families and a lot of mates at our a lot of throughout the years combination celebrations, and so this album also added to each their own enjoyment choices, and no one complained, and a lot of voices applause. Thank you, Amazon. Blessings.
I have never been a fan of Accordion Players until I saw Myron on the Lawrence Welk Show(My wife got me hooked on the show). This collection shows just how amazing Myron is. Every song is a winner. My favorite Rock Band is Deep Purple, now my favorite accordion player is Myron Floren!! I just want I could have seen him in person before he died in 2005.
From his 1940s heyday until the late 1960s, Frankie Yankovic was with Columbia records. Then, from 1968 to 1970, he recorded five albums with RCA. This CD includes 23 of the 44 tracks originally released on the first four of these five LPs. It's amazing stuff, and it's latest enough so that the sound is decent. The five tracks (3,7,13,16,22) from the first LP, Polka Variety, do not sound quite as amazing as the others, and two or three of the five seem to have been "enhanced" with a small additional reverb. RCA has chosen to contain mostly the polkas, rather than the waltzes, from these vinyl classics. This is unfortunate, because in some ways the waltzes Frankie recorded during this "between-heydeys" period were actually superior to the polkas. I hope RCA will produce a Volume 2 of this CD, including all the remaining titles from these LPs, especially Attractive Rose, St Bernard Waltz, LeeAnn Waltz, Those Were the Days, and Chip on Your Shoulder. Then, perhaps at a reduced price, there could be a Volume 3, an exact re-release of Frankie's fifth RCA vinyl, Polka Time, which for some reason is not represented on this CD at all. The current CD, which contains some very nice liner notes summarizing his life and 1998 funeral, makes me yearn for more, and yearn for the best.
I'm beautiful sure this is Wierd Al's dad?!I live polka, created a polka chanel on Pandora (the idea finally dawned on me!) and Frank is a major player in that realm it would seem. I'm really not an expert, but I sure adore the cheer and tempo! This is truly a collection of classics, my wife bought it for me as a surprise - well done!
Listen, anyone who does not like Polka melody is a Communist, lol!! This kind of melody makes you wish to obtain up and dance, whether you know how to or not. While I prefer Frankie's original Columbia recordings, these later recordings are very nice with amazing sound. Frankie was definitely the King of Polka, and there will never be another like him.
One for me, and one for a gift! This CD is a near-perfect mix of polkas and obereks, sung in English and Polish. You can really feel the energy coming through, especially from the two live tracks, Never Ending Love (the old Bill and Taffy Danoff hit) and Let's Have a Beer.Each instrument is wonderfully showcased. The Clarinet Polka gives that instrument top billing, but the song feels more like a lively conversation between clarinet, horns, and accordion. Drums don't just thump the beat -- "bouquets" of improvisation bloom everywhere. Thankfully, honking saxophones stay in the e masterpiece comes at the end. Up In The Attic weaves the Sounds' impressions of a lot of legends, from Small Wally to huge Ed Blazonczyk, into 11 mins of warbling clarinets, expressive drumming, and trumpets which approach mariachi territory. Give us more Sounds!
This collection is assembled with very little, if any, thought to editing. The CD has a very wide dozens of polka styles, eras of recordings and quality level of recordings. If you're looking for melody to assign to playlists, you will search more songs to discard than ones to hold from this CD. For nine bucks, I don't mind the gamble, but I certainly will not revisit most of the tracks. The recordings on this CD from Whoopee John were probably recorded shortly after Whoopee was discovered.
Wow, yes, we added more and more Amazon varieties of music, polkas, and everything else to our different combination parties throughout the years, and all of our guests, a lot of musically inclined and some dancingly inclined, and others listeningly inclined, enjoyed all the varieties, and no one registered any complaints, so they liked it all. Thank you, Amazon. Blessings.
This is a very fine, well-balanced, and satisfied collection of Polka music. I use it at nursing homes and assisted living centers to entertain the people. At least here in northeastern Wisconsin, polka melody is a huge deal and people come to life listening to it. Amazing quality Cd. Can't go wrong with this one.
I grew up with the polka music. We lived 30 miles from Fresh Ulm, Minnesota. I traveled to Fresh Ulm monthly for over 10 years. I was in the jukebox business and visted all the German taverns in Fresh Ulm. The melody on this CD is from those days. I love Schatzie by Bernie Roberts! To poor Elmer schid was not on this CD with THE Red HEad Polka. One of his best as only his band could play the Red Head the method it was meant to be heard.
This CD might as well be called Polka Dance Party, Volume 5. Like Volumes 1 through 4, which have also been named Polka's Greatest Hits, this collection of old, probably public-domain material leaves a lot to be desired. The sound is weak in both the volume and bass departments, and the Whoopee John tracks sound as though they were recorded directly from shellac 78's recorded in the 1940s. Stick to the better Frankie Yankovic releases, such as Songs of the Polka King Volumes 1 and 2.
Bobby Vinton is to polkas what the Boston Pops was to classical music. If, by being famous and performing polkas pop-style, he can increase the public's awareness of the polka arena, more power to him. The latest track, Polka Memories Medley, is mostly the Barbara Polka, a fact not mentioned on the jacket. Once you've heard this artist, you'll wish to graduate to the true items -- Joey Miskulin, Frankie Yankovic, Jimmy Sturr, and a few others. This one is a amazing introduction.
