Editor's note: this album is a bit of a misnomer as it should be called The Syl Rutkowski Orchestra with Token Appearances by the Little Polish Girl because she hardly sings on it! The one time she does on SIDE A it's a wedding song and she's singing as a 19 year old girl who is about to be hitched. Ummm, yeah...a little creepy to package it this way. That and the first song is called HE LIKES THE GIRLIES and is sung by some guy with a hormonal swagger. Which is all fine and dandy but not on an album called LITTLE POLISH GIRL! No no...I'm not suggesting anything is afoot just that it's a bit bizarre. Anyhow, a pretty snappy polka LP but it would have been better if the little girl were the actual star and could actually be heard when she sang and not so much good old Syl despite his obvious genius for polka. I mean, polka's polka but add a dog, a little kid or a banjo and it's polkalicious. Now who sounds like the weirdo, huh?!?!
