My Album Collection: Live At Lake Tahoe

Straight from my record collection, here's another vintage Lawrence Welk album that's worth listening to,

And best of all, it's Live! From the fabulous resort town of Lake Tahoe!

This was first recorded during the summer of 1978, when Lawrence Welk and his musical family were doing their annual summer engagement of concerts from the Harrah's casino and hotel in Tahoe, maybe some of you guys had the chance to see them perform there....but this album contains live performances of the music makers doing what they do best.

It all makes for very pleasant listening on this fine two-record set, here's a complete rundown of all the songs.
