"Like other productions by Lawrence Welk and Myron Floren, this one is professionally performed, but it really doesn't generate a lot of excitement. It could use a little more variation in tempo from track to track. There are no lyrics anywhere, even though most of these songs come with them. This is the first time, for example, that I have heard Just Because without the words. This CD just doesn't have the pizazz of a Frankie Yankovic or a Joey Miskulin or an Eddie Blazonczyk. It's several cuts above elevator music, however."
More good polka music from the masters

"The irony of this CD is that Lawrence Welk himself only appears on one track: Just Because. That is the only track where there is an accordion duet between Myron and Lawrence with the backing of the Champagne Music Makers, Lawrence playing the accordion "lead". The rest are all drawn from Myron's solo output for the Ranwood label from the 60s and 70s. Very polished performances, they are happy music that can sometimes suffer from a bit of a homogenized production. Still, very good music and excellent accordion work from Floren. For a more thoroughly dynamic overview, check out the 22 Greatest Polkas CD by Myron Floren first."

"Say what you want about Welk and Floren, but they can come up with some pretty darn good music. Great songs and great sound!"
