December 2006

Polka’s not dead, folks! Not if LynnMarie and the Boxhounds have anything to say about it. With perkily programmed percussion and an irrepressible smile, LynnMarie polka-fies the worlds of rock and country with accordion-happy renditions of such classics as “Oh, Lonesome Me,” “Stuck in the Middle with You,” and of course, The Who’s “Squeeze Box.” The album opens with a toe-tappin’ version of “Happy Feet” as sweet as movie-house Cracker Jacks, sure to get both you and your little one off your seat. The entire album is a fun, Cleveland-meets-San Antone’ romp with a twinge of old-worldliness, as there’s an occasional lapse into Slovenian language lyric and chit-chat. It’s wholesome and family-friendly from start to finish – even the bouncy, upbeat cover of “No Beer Today.” Rally ‘round the barbeque, bring the kids, and don’t forget your waltzin’ shoes to go with LynnMarie’s Party Dress.

Favorite Track: “Stuck In the Middle with You”
