Description
 
"Growing up in the small village of Florida, NY, with a population of 1500 people, about 85 % were Polish. They came from Poland to work on "black dirt" farms, where they raised onions. Our local high school dances were all played by Polka Bands, our local radio station played Polkas every day and of course we had our 3-day Polish Weddings. This is how I fell in love with Polka Music. I never had a favorite, I liked them all. They were my "Legends". I really believe without these pioneers there wouldn't be a Polka Field as it is today. Of course there are many other Legends in the Polka Field, these are just a few. I hope you enjoy this CD and hopefully it will bring back some great memories! - Jimmy Sturr."

Some of the legends Jimmy Sturr pays tribute to on this cd are Frank Wojnarowki, Gene Wisniewski, Ray Henry, The Connecticut Twins, Walt Solek, Larry Chesky, Al Soyka, Bernie Witkowski, Joe Ressetar, Joe Rock and of course Frankie Yankovic.

These are incredible versions of some of the greatest polka songs from these polka artists in the era of the late 40's to mid 60's.
