Upstairs At Larry's - Lawrence Welk Uncorked

Whoever thought that Lawrence Welk could be anything but "old school cool?" With revamped and remixed cuts from some of the best club DJ's around, Lawrence Welk has been re-invented and club kids and hipsters all over will soon be sipping champagne and grooving to Larry. The frothiness of the originals is not diminished in any way - making this a real heartfelt tribute. With songs like "You are My Sunshine" and "Baby Elephant Walk" backed by thumping beats and mellow grooves like "Caravan" this would be a perfect fit at any club, lounge, or party. It is best listened to the whole way through because the album is so wonderfully constructed song by song it takes you on a journey that comes full circle. All in all, fabulously fun and clever in a bubbly modern sorf of way. If you are a lover of loungey songs done with a very modern take, then you might want this. Fun to freak out the grandarents.

Who knew Welk could sound so cool and modern! Very nice and thanks for posting. If you want to hear funky mid 1960’s LW, check out the “Apples & Bananas” cut on my show---fun stuff.

This is one of my favorite remix albums. It never fails to be a hit when I throw on tracks from it at parties. Even my mom--for whom "Hooked on Classics" is kind of rebellious--warmed to it after a while.

The perfect companion to this one is "Pink Panther's Penthouse Party".
