Editor's note: I had always been under the impression that polka originated with my brethren the Polish but according to this record it started in Bohemia and spread across Europe like a plague. Apparently, this is the way polka started as an almost classical music lite and then was ravished into a sort of Mexican beer dance by non-Bohemians. Or something like that. It's an okay album but without the excellent cover and name it would still reside at the thrift store.
