Product Description

We offer you the wonderful disc of V. Visotskii, cult figure of the Soviet times, which contains his best songs.

Bard, poet, writer, actor - Visotskii had an all pervading influence during his relatively short career (he died in 1980 at the age of 42). His musical style was one that has never really been taken up in Britain, singing songs about real love, friendship, human emotions, accompanied by his guitar, character studies, a lot of songs which were critical of the regime. The nearest comparison might be Jacque Brel. But in Russia, Visotskii cut across the taste and age spectrum. An important artist to old and young alike, inspiring many of the rock bands of the seventies and eighties. His acting career was also of note - he took, amongst many others, the lead role in the drama serial 'The Meeting Place Cannot be Changed', and was performing in a stage version of 'Hamlet' at the time of his death.
