There’s a song on my latest Walter Ostanek Band CD, “Back to Back Hall of Fame Polkas”, called, “Waltz of the Angels”.
This is a beautiful waltz with Jon Libera on the vocals. I’m getting a lot of nice comments about this particular song and attention from several polka radio stations.
There’s a cute little story behind this song;
Jon Libera, former vocalist with the Walter Ostanek Band, brought this old Lefty Frizzell composition to my attention about 4 years ago and suggested that I record it. I liked the song and asked Jon if he’d like to do it. Well that was 4 years ago!
Last year while at Kravos Recording Studio in Cleveland with Murray McFadgen doing some vocal tracks I played “Waltz of the Angels” for Murray and Bob Kravos. They both loved it so I got Murray to record the harmony vocals to Jon’s original melody vocal. While Murray was doing the recording, Tony Petkovsek, (#1 Polka DJ in Cleveland), dropped in to visit. Tony really liked it as well.
So after sitting on the shelf for 4 years, “Waltz of the Angels” was finally completed and released on our “Back to Back Hall of Fame Polkas” cd.
I hope you enjoy Waltz of the Angels. I want to thank Jon Libera, not only for bringing the song to me, but for doing such a great job on the vocals.
