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.


  1. Thanks so much for this. Loving it.

  2. yr welcome man, just happy yr digging it as much as i am. this record is really really amazing.
