Go back to the fabulous era when the dance floors were overflowing with couples bouncing and swinging to the “Eastern Sound” and Dick Pillar’s very first album “Raise the Roof”.

The 1970’s were abundant with summer festivals and we are brought back to that glorious time with Dick Pillar’s release celebrating his 1974 induction into the International Polka Association “Polka Music Hall of Fame”.

From 1980 on to the present, more of the popular tunes of the times are featured, in all a compilation of selections spanning decades of music. Also featured on this CD release are three SURPRISE BONUS TRACKS.

Dick Pillar’s musical résumé is jam-packed with the sounds that have entertained thousands of hand-clapping, foot-tapping polka fans across the nation and brought generations together with his lively music.

This release is called “The Best of Dick Pillar”, volume 1, but you can bet there’s much more to come!
