Ed Podolak and his PolkaCATS

Somewhere between Bull Moose Jackson and Aerosmith lies Ed Podolak and the 10 inch Cucumber. Stripped-down, low-budget, bare-bones polka is what you will find here, in other words, the best kind there is. Don’t be shy now…get up and dance around the living room…you know you want to.

And for all you polka haters out there, I have two words for you: MORE POLKAAAAAAAAAA!

25 Polka Greats

This is one of K-TEL’s earliest releases. Understandably so (what company wouldn’t want to get a jump on cornering the lucrative Polka market?). My two-year old loves Polka. I put on this record last night and he immediately starting jumping around in a circle shouting “Yip! Yip! Yip! Yip!” just like the Backyardigans in “Polka Palace Party.” I’ve found that K-TEL records usually don’t hold up too well over time. Maybe they just get played to death due to the high hit concentrations. This one isn’t too bad on the surface noise, but there are a couple skips. The price is right though. Free for you, 20 cents for me. (Unless you count my time, which is INFINITELY VALUABLE!)

Did you know that in Heaven there is no beer? (That’s why we drink it here.)
