A Polka in the Eye With a Sharp Stick

OK, let's just start with the name: Stanley Polaski and His Orchestra. Polaski? For a polka record? Really? Surely that's a nome de recording for some faceless studio musicians. (OTOH, there is a record of a Stanley Polaski of about the right age who lived in Pittsburgh, and given the title of the first song, I suppose anything is possible). Stanley doesn't even get credit on the front or back covers, just on the disc label, so I doubt that he was a well (or even semi)-known bandleader of the era.

Regardless, this is fine music for your next beer tasting - just don't serve any of that American mass-produced horse urine.
