This rare first pressing came to me without a “proper” cover. According to the seller, “All these ex-communist country record covers were made of cheap paper. Not laminated like UK or cardboard covers. This was a standard cover with no additional information mentioned on front or back cover. This kind of cover was in use with the early large red or blue stereo labels. Later issues became nice laminated multi language covers, similar as the UK SAX or ASD albums.”

Track Listing:

Side One
01 – I. Allegretto
02 – II. Andante
03 – III. Moderato
04 – IV. Allegretto
05 – V. Allegro

Side Two
Taras Bulba (Rapsódie Pro Velký Orchestr)
06 – I. The Death Of Andri
07 – II. The Death Of Ostap

  1. Thanks Steve!
    Listened to and enjoyed this, this morning. Very nice sound; if it’s rare, I’m presuming that it is old…

    Thank you for sharing your incredible collection with Steve and Alf so that it may also be shared with us.
