Інформація з обкладинки:

        This Album is dedicated to the spirit and traditions that make a UKRAINIAN WEDDING one of the most joyous of all occasions. Mention to anyone, Ukrainian or not, the words “UKRAINIAN WEDDING” and visions of sumptuous foods, good cheer, lively music, and an atmosphere of vibrant festivity comes to mind.
        We have tried to capture the essence of the festive spirit that is a UKRAINIAN WEDDING by combining traditional songs and new melodies, set to a lively tempo, played as they were meant to be.
        You will enjoy the sounds of PAN FLUTE, BANDURA, CYMBALI, VIOLINS, and MANDOLINS as they dance freely through melodies and memories of a culture that is as beautiful and captivating as it is dear to all that is in our hearts.
        So open the stereo, put the record on, turn up the volume, and before you know it, your feet will begin tapping, and you’ll be dancing and singing to the sounds of A UKRAINIAN WEDDING.
