I Love to Polka

Despite Sturr's five Grammies, your actual U.S. polka -- native-born son of the naturalized recordings above -- doesn't get much "mainstream" attention. Pity! After all, it's the only White regional urban idiom in the U.S. Sturr does the real stuff, mostly in English, with some Polish lyrics, and with a very strongly Bohemian/Slovenian vocal sound -- check out Slavko Avsenik for its roots. Yes, it's disgracefully short, but that's a ripoff whose time has apparently come. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
