If music makes you feel good, good music should make you feel better. In the case of the Guckenheimer Sour Kraut Band, however the most delicate nuances recorded here, the opposite seems to be true. This music proves that you can promote good feeling, and even hilarity, with some of the sourest sounds this side of a German village square. Hailing from the San Francisco area, the Guckenheimer Sour Kraut Band were a humorous group of amateur musicians hell bent on bringing joy to anyone who would dare listen as they blasted out their Oom-Pah-Pah polkas on street corners. The group would go on to become increasingly popular in northern California and in later years were invited to such august occasions as opening night of the San Francisco Symphony. All the members of the group were business professionals by day with their most famous member being George Lichty, the nationally syndicated "Grin and Bear It" cartoonist. Oktoberfest comes but once a year but there's no reason to not drink a few steins of beer and enjoy this hilarious, brilliant and indeed very good musicianship all year round.
