The Disco Orchestra vs Hudson County

I have posted the following track (that is a mix of two actually) already, but now I got information its credits noted on the cover — J.Last and S.Wonder — are incorrect.

Really it’s a cover on a 1975 recording. I didn’t heard about Hudson County before but the track is good and rare also — has no even entry about the author.

Three years difference — how the russians did know about that rare track? Maybe they have heard some James Last’s version?

Yes, it is very very likely that the russians did hear about it from the James Last records. the James Last record can be easily found in Germany and it was released on Melodija too. Like many other artists, James Last wanted to save money and didnt want to pay royalties for covering the song. He possibly knew it was very rare (even back then) and no one would ever find out. He just claimed he wrote the song by himself.
