One of Lawrence Welk's earliest albums
(3 out of 5 stars)
"I still recall when I first saw this album. My parents were huge fans of Lawrence Welk's TV show, and growing up several of his early-1960's albums were very popular with me as well. (In fact, I always preferred his records over the show!) And Welk looked awful YOUNG on the cover photo! Turns out this was his 2nd album, right after POLKA AND WALTZ TIME (anyone more knowledgeable please correct me if I'm wrong here). As always, Welk's band gives a light and bouncy touch to any song they do, including a very different take of "Stompin' At The Savoy" from others I've heard.I only recently noticed something slightly odd about this CD. It's missing 4 of the songs the LP had-- but includes 2 at the end that were not on the original. Considering how much you can fit on a CD, I'd say someone should correct this some day, as the LP has the slight "edge"-- if yours hasn't been scratched up from being played to death over the decades!"
