Waltz of the Angels Finally Released

Posted by: | Comments (3)

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.

Til next time, Keep Smiling,
