Fantastic introduction to "Nuclear Polka" - MUST BUY!
David Daniel ( | Dallas, Texas USA | 07/11/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this band in Austin, TX in the late 80's and have been hooked ever since. This CD is a must for any Brave Combo fan! The versions of "Who stole the Kishka" and "Seven Steps" will get your feet moving! Note "The Happy Wanderer" as done by Brave Combo and as historically performed in Schindler's List, classical polka fans will get a charge out of the "updated" version. My favorite listening place for this CD is in my car on my morning commute. This is the music that you WANT to get stuck in your head! If you think "Nuclear Polka" is your grandparent's music, think again!"
One of the greatest achievements in the history of humankind

"The Sistine Chapel. The theory of relativity. The moon landing. And now, this. Polkatharsis."
A taste of Europe via North Texas

"Brave Combo takes traditional European music and infuses it with an American kick. From the back: "This LP contains eleven polkas, two waltzes, and a schottische, performed in a variety of styles." While accurate, the music on this album delivers a lot more than you might be expecting. If you thought the waltz and the polka were just for geezers in lederhosen, think again. You'll be ready to dance. And if you already think of polka as a reason to dance, get ready to have serious fun."
