A compilation of polkas, rock, waltzes and more, drawn from Brave Combo's early recordings on their own Four Dots label, 1981-1984, plus a few previously unreleased gems. This is the collection that features their hilarious version of the Doors' 'People are Strange' (done as a psychedelic hora -- 'perfect for weddings' it says in the notes!). Plus 'O Holy Night' done as a cha cha, 'Sixteen Tons' done as a cumbia -- beginning to get the idea? For all-purpose dance music, Brave Combo's joyous mix and match of favorite songs and world music rhythms can't be beat. (CD is ROUN 11546, cassette is ROUN 9013.)
