"Dimitrievich was a living legend of the Russian-Gypsy emigre music. He lived and worked in Spain, France, Latin Ameirca, then France again. In Paris he was popular among the "first-wave" Russian immigrants.His singing and accompainment are authentically Gypsy-Russian. The quality of recording is not the best. Apparently, these are some restored old tapes. In addition, Dimitrievich was apparently old when these records were made, and therefore his voice is at times weak. Even so, this CD is a must for those who are looking for the real Russian-Gypsy music."
No words to describe my disgust

"I am still left wondering whose idea it was to name Russian songs of the criminal underground Gypsy songs. Perhaps, it is safer that way, and it attracts customers to at least listen to one of the songs. Being born in Russia, I have had enough exposure to criminal underground songs and culture to resent it with all my soul. This is not a good CD if you are looking for gypsy songs from Russia. If you are interested in Russian criminal underground songs sung by some drunk con - you are in for a treat. Thank you."
