5.0 out of 5 stars O Holy Night Cha Cha Cha And Other Classics November 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Brave Combo never ceases to amaze me. Even though I have had this CD for a number of years, I have recently been listening to it routinely because it always puts me in a better mood. If you think that the world's greatest modern polka band would be a drag, think again. This CD is full of Brave Combo's best work, and crosses many musical boundaries in the process. My personal favorites are "O Holy Night Cha Cha Cha," which is exactly what you would believe it to be given the title, "Habanera Rock," an up-tempo re-rendering of a Latin classic, "Gigi," a wonderful and peculiar show tune (and I am someone who generally detests musicals), the African influenced "Skokiaan," "Sixteen Tons" done as an upbeat quasi-polka (certain to startle anyone familiar with the original), and my very favorite of all, the Doors classic "People Are Strange," a truth which will be more evident than ever after hearing this version, which is not at all what Jim Morrison had in mind.

Some of these are live and some are studio recordings, but the musicianship is first rate throughout. The band emphasizes unusual treatments of well known titles, intermixed with pleasantly surprising originals. Think of Brave Combo as Weird Al for intellectuals, or perhaps as Lawrence Welk for metalheads, although no categorization can really do them justice. This is the best CD to use as an introduction, but I warn you, this music is very addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great intoduction to an incredible polka band! July 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to these guys for almost 20 years and have yet to grow tired of their unique sound. They make you want to get up and dance! I highly recommend all their albums and they're even better live! They make me proud of being from Denton, TX (their home town).

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't be depressed listening to this! August 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD could liven up almost any party. In fact, the whole thing, but particularly the last half almost sounds like they were having a great time in the studio recording it. Put this on and form a conga line! You won't be sorry.
