 A Classic October 21, 2016 By j. rochow (Arlington, VA) See All My Reviews "This album goes back to the performance of the Soviet Army Chorus and Band in London in 1956. It was originally issued by Angel, but re-recorded several times as stereo technology improved. Don't expect crisp English on the songs sung in English, but so what. My favorite is the Song of Youth, which blends dynamically old church Slavonic and the evolution of choral singing in the World War II and Soviet eras. A nice companion is the Monitor album of mainly World War II songs beginning with Moscow Nights. There is also a spirited and delightful rendition of St. Louis Woman on two guitars on the Monitor compilation of Soviet pop songs." Report Abuse
