We've had a recording of this chorus all thru the cold war years when it was almost subversive. Unfortunatley our turntable gave out and we had to enter the CD age. I had almost given up hope when i chanced on this at amazon. We are etermnally grateful. This is some of the most soulful music ever recorded , whatever your politics.

I first discovered this album as a LP in the late 1960s. Granted, the recording techniques then are not as sophisticated as they are now, but the quality of the voices on this CD is excellent, and the music will send chills down your spine.

There are subsequent albums of the "Red Army" (whom I've seen in person) -- while good, the original "Soviet" is still the best.

If you love great soloists, outstanding choral work, and stirring music, you will appreciate this album.

I was delighted to find this CD; I had the original 33 RPM record when it first came out while in college in the mid-1950's, and it is rather well worn, the old turn-table has been stored (somewhere) for years, and I'm happy to replace it with a CD. jlw

Very good music; wide variety. All sung with great passion and spirit. Even my 3-yr. old son loves it and can hardly sit still while it plays. I, too, get caught up in the rhythm, particularly in "The Decembrists."

Rich and often powerful music. Much magnificent singing and orchestration. The effort of the chorus to sing "Tipperary" in english is, alone, well worth the price of purchase.

This is considered to be the finest collection of the Soviet Army Chorus and Band repertoire, and, one can say, its final victory! Few military or marching bands could ever approach the vitality and intensity of the legendary Soviet Army band, once known as the infamous Red Army. The rousing sound has once inspired the Soviet soldier and put fear into those who had no choice but to listen. Although the band still exists today, it has few praises to sing and little to sing about. Today, Soviet army recordings, beltbuckles, hats, and medals stir up more interest in flea markets and on eBay. This nostalgic collection, the last hurrah of a broken empire, is a treasure to be cherished by every military buff of every persuasion under the sun.

This is the best performance of human voice I have ever heard. I am listening uninterrupted since receiving it. It is yet the second day, but I think I will listen to it for years.

This CD offers 17 tracks of terrific Red Army chorus music. However, if you buy the EMI reissue, you will receive everything on this disc plus five additionsl tracks at a much lower price.
