Good Taste of Yankovic
Edward J Vasicek | Kokomo, IN USA | 12/08/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Yankovic's great accordian work with such happy songs as The Too Fat Polka, The Pennsylvania Polka, or the ever popular Beer Barrel Polka mesh well together.
We could argue that "Who Stole the Keeshka?" is the happiest song ever written! And Yankovic's version is best. We find out that "Yasha found the Keeshka!" Other versions leave the mystery unsolved!
This is great feel good music."
A decent overview of the original hits (no remakes)

"Although this does omit the top 20 hit "Iron Range Polka" this does offer a decent overview of Frankie's signature songs in their original hit versions all in stereo except for the 2 top 10 hits he's ever had as they have been released in the 1940's, "Blue Skirt Waltz" and "Just Because." Other highlights on here include "Too Fat Polka," "Who Stole The Keeshka," and what I think is the definitive polka, the "Beer Barrel Polka." As another review has stated this was released on vinyl back in 1967 on Columbia and now for the low price of about $10, you can enjoy the polka king right on this CD. Unless you are a diehard fan, this is probably the only CD you'll ever need by Frankie with most of his signature songs among its 11 songs all in their original hit versions with no filler."
Polka at its best.

"Go ahead. You know you want to buy a polka album, drink some beer, and dance around the living room. Frankie and the Yanks don't disappoint with this solid collection of their hits. You just can't go wrong with the Pennsylvania Polka or with Frankie Yankovic."
