Best traditional russian recording
(5 out of 5 stars)
"(Actually its one of the two best that I know of)I have a tape cassett recording which is in danger of being worn out as I have played it so much. It is truly wonderful: up lifting and haunting; seems to me to capture the "slavic soul" Very good performance. I have heard recordings of russian music where the instrunmentals were too thin or too commercial. This one seemed perfect: polished but retaining an earthiness. Obviously, I highly recommend it. There other "best" recording is called "Songs of the Cossacks"(Peshi Kazokov)."
