- A Great Party Album

Bobby Vinton's association with the polka began in 1974 with the realease of "My Melody of Love" a song written by Vinton and sung partially in Polish. The song went to number one and relaunched Vinton's career as "The Polish Prince" His follow-up song "The Beer Barrel Polka" a top forty 1975 release is included here although touched up from its original version. Listen close and you'll hear "A lot of sweet romancin'" replacing "a lot of Polish people" from the '75 version. Also included here is a lot of material from the 1976 release "Bobby Vinton Party Music" which was released on Bobby's own Rexford label and sold through television and retail. Bobby recieved his Platinum album award on his TV show that same year, and the album remains his best selling of all time. A couple of new songs round out the set "Polka Radio" was a hit on the Polka circuit and "Polka Memories" is great for those strong enough to survive a seven minute polka. This album brings a happy contemporary flair to its material and is a great party CD.

- Good popularized polkas

Bobby Vinton is to polkas what the Boston Pops was to classical music. If, by being popular and performing polkas pop-style, he can increase the public's awareness of the polka arena, more power to him. The last track, Polka Memories Medley, is mostly the Barbara Polka, a fact not mentioned on the jacket. Once you've heard this artist, you'll want to graduate to the real stuff -- Joey Miskulin, Frankie Yankovic, Jimmy Sturr, and a few others. This one is a good introduction.

- Brought life to my Mom

I bought this for my Mom who is in a nursing home and restricted to a wheelchair............she loves it!! Before I leave from my visit, I put her earphones on her, put this CD in her player and watch as that smile comes on her face as she enters her own world of memories and I feel happy, not sad, that she is where she is.

- So you want to Happy

If you want to be happy, here is an album, that will make you feel good, I defy anyone to listen to a polka and be depressed, Bobbie Vinton does a good job taking the polka to a broader audience.

- My Father was THRILLED!

My father and I both Love Bobby Vinton! His tapes were not to be found in any local music stores. I had attended a concert of his over a year ago and wasn't aware of him having any tapes for sale. Well, my father's birthday was approaching along with a recent diagnosis of cancer. I wanted to get him something really really special. I found Amazon on line and found 3 CDs that Bobby Vinton has made over the years. I purchased these three and sent them to my father! As I said HE WAS THRILLED! He has played them over and over............even hoping his cancer treatments will be over so he can see one of Bobby's concerts coming up this spring. THANKS TO AMAZON FOR HELPING ME FIND SOME REALLY GREAT MUSIC that otherwise couldn't be found in the stores. I will use amazon for other music interests.
