LP Русские песни (Translates as «Russian Songs»)
Melodiya / Мелодия C60−14621 / recorded 1976−78, released 1980

Recently an anonymous guest asked where are the following tunes from. They are from this album. Thank you for reminding me of it. Now I like it more than 0.5 years ago.

It’s the same Alexander Gradsky who wrote these unbelievable hard killer funk breaks from «Romance for Lovers».

I believe the music has some relation to progressive rock, so Darius — you probably could find it interesting.

Hi Sovietgroove, i'm back in a definitive manner this time. This summer was terribly hot and dump. I knew the name of russian singer songwriter Alexander Gradsky but i didn't think he recorded a progressive work. Yes, i listened the sampler and very much alot of theatral drama sounds and progressive keyboard ala ELP are there. I have to give a better listen. Thanks a lot for show me the artist at his best. See you soon.

Sorry friend PV. I must find it elsewhere in mp3. 20-25 kb/s with Narod.ru and after over an hour of dwl the classic line down, breaks the pack. One of the motives because i hate Flac's.

narod.ru is always slow outside of Russia, so the rapidhsare link is still alive

Ok, i will try Rapidsh but i'm sure over 200mb is forbidden to free user. I must do a premium account but new system of RS is a bit chaotic to understand.

It's not forbidden however. Moreover if you set up an premium account you will not able to download anything until pay some money or ... log out. They went some crazy in their Rapidshare.

Thanks SG. I've done some days ago with Rapidshare and no problem. The new system for premium account with RPshare is a bit confusing and not explained clearly everywhere. Gradsky album is very good with exception of Soldatskaja. Strong mix of folk tunes and, as i said before, progressive dramatic sound and some ELP post-Brain Salad Surgery more linear keyboard sounds. I have to say that, at least for the best track Tanya Belaya with the fantastic ELP tail, is truncated. Really or it's only my impression. Thanks for russian pearl
