Brian Marshall & His Tex-Slavik Playboys: Texas Polish Roots
Buy! - (Arhoolie)
A considerable number of East Europeans immigrated to Texas in the late-19th and early-20th centuries, and their polkas, waltzes and schottisches have been incorporated into various genres such as western swing. Marshall and his band (which includes Bad Liver Mark Rubin on bass) do a fine job of reviving with graceful vigor a musical tradition that's been long neglected. 11/15/1997 - Don Yates
