Here's Lawrence Welk in the actual big-band era heading up his Champagne Music Makers, sounding a bit stiffer on these sides than on his later Coral or Dot or Ranwood recordings. With a ten-song set that starts off with his theme "Bubbles in the Wine," this budget disc also includes typical Welk-ian versions of "Ain't She Sweet," "Comin' Thru the Rye," "It Seems Like Old Times," and the venerable "Beer Barrel Polka." Not essential Welk, but a nice early-days sampler.
