Praise The Lord, One Day At A Time (Sound S-1159) 1983



Full name Big Daddy Lackowski, accordionist and polka enthusiast.  Here’s another one to keep next to your Polka Mass lp. Some lively instrumentals in here, along with several vocal tracks. Only three or so songs have a Christian theme, but the glorious ‘Polka Heaven’ was enough to land the album a spot in this section. Big Daddy’s rippling accordion licks lead the way, backed by drums, bass and sometimes trumpets. You may recognize ‘Dance Little Bird’ as ‘The Chicken Dance’. That cut features sporadic sped-up chipmunk-ish phrases from the bird, plus there are six color pics on the back cover of someone in a cheap full-body chicken costume showing Big Daddy how the dance is done. Front cover has a painting of Jesus in the center, bordered by four shots of Big Daddy and his instrument.      (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Discogs for the front cover photo and the track list.
