Інформація з обкладинки:

Those songs and spot comedy bits were composed and sung by the very talented artist Eugene Zukowsky. From 1925 to 1940, through the depression and years of struggle, Zukowsky made the Ukrainian people laugh. They would come into the store and say, “Mr. Please give me record about Kuma (neighbor). No, I don’t want the record for myself, I want it for my Kuma to listen”. “It sounds just like her”. And it did sound like her. For Zukowsky had a way of reaching common ground among the Ukrainian people and making the everyday drudgery a humorous thing.

There is still a lot to laugh about in Zukowsky’s songs. For that reason we have compiled the old favorites and reproduced them for you on this Rusalka long playing record.
