    On my travels today (due to the wonders of store up flexi-time) I picked up this LP -albeit in a different sleeve. And with her name spelt differently.

    *Anyway*, The first track on this LP is, if there is such a thing, a psych-disco track (one to confuse with I guess). It is apparently from the film 'The Centre Forward From The Skies' which sounds brilliant in principle if I could find anything about it. Most likely a mistranslation in any case.

    The rest of the LP is a mix of rubbish in a variety of styles - even the promising sounding five minutes fifty of 'Come'.

    So, anybody got any ideas ?

      LOL After all that hassle with translation...

      It's the last track on my 'All Cats Go To Heaven' mix, Matt. As translated by Lord T and also Mr Hayes knows about this record. Love that track. Big favourite of mine. I guess yours has this cover.

        Indeed that's the cover I've got..... should have searched the archives. I've listened to your mix a load of times too

          the translation is supposedly accurate, i've asked some russian friends to find out about 'the centre-forward from the skies'.. i'll post it up if anything comes of it..

          music (for wdt) was composed by alexander avilov- it's worth picking up doubles of his lp of instrumentals for alla called 'rhythm', if you spot it- one side is a has some very nice disco/pysch bits. but you *really* need doubles to edit out the ultra-cheesy synth that rears it ugly head.. one day i will get around to doing a re-edit of this, one day..

            How close was I in translating the Russian script into English, then?  It was the first time I'd done that for a while, so I was a bit rusty!

            I've got a couple more Russian LPs lately (including one by the Dooleys, of all people&#33 which I've been using to refresh my Cyrillic script reading - aside from making it easier to spot which Russian LPs are worth a pop, it's no use whatsoever, though.  

            By the way, the stuff at the bottom of the page reads something along the lines of -

            Voc./Instr. ensemble V. Kleinota (1), Voc/Instr ensemble "RITM" A. Avilov (2, 3, 4, 6, 7), Orchestra V. Terletskogo (5)
