in mother russia.
holy fucking shit. why have i not heard of vladimir vysotsky before? some canadian cat who was staying where i work told me about this guy, & said he was the russian leonard cohen. i can see a bit of that, but on this record, he reminds me a lot of brel & my man walker. i definitely see those cats in the same league... i guess he's referred to as the russian bob dylan because they both came up at the same time? maybe they were both working in a "political" realm around the same time that civil unrest in both countries was running high? who fucking knows. anyway, just download this & thank me later. & if anyone out there has more gems from this cat, let me know.
