    This is in fact first-generation Polish-American music from recordings made in Chicago and New York between 1927 and 1933, and very nice too. Very varied also, with plenty of vocal material as well as early examples of polka as it prepared to metamorphose into an American ethnic (and to some extent regional) style. Included is nifty, forgotten music, remarkable recording quality, excellent notes. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (2-3/96, p.89) - "...Most selections feature ensemble instrumentation usually led by two or three violins, with clarinet, string bass, and an occasional trumpet, piano, or accordion....Good sound reproduction and lots of fun..."
