This re-release of Russian folk songs performed by the world-famed Don Cossack Choir is taken from archival recordings made in the 1950s. The fidelity and quality of the sound is quite good and allows the listeners to experience fully why the Cossacks were wildly popular with audiences in thousands of concerts given over 50 years on every inhabited continent of this planet. The best tracks on this CD are the raw, authentic Cossack songs, which are performed with great gusto and unbridled vocal energy. The Don Cossacks put on a great show, and their legacy is now being heard in their Russian homeland as well as by new generations of fans who are re-discovering them through these re-mastered releases. The attractively designed booklet tells the story of the Don Cossacks and Serge Jaroff in both Russian and English, but no translations of the song texts are given. (This album was once available in our catalog--No. D013--as part of a 2-CD set on the Deutsche Grammophon label).--V.M
