Tin Soldiers (Оловянные Солдатики) - Reasoning (1972) USSR

Tin Soldiers (Оловянные Солдатики) - Reasoning (1972) USSR

"Tin Soldiers" is a Moscow group that was one of the first to perform rock in Russian. 
The Tin Soldiers   released the first full-length magnetic album in the territory of the Soviet Union, which was replicated at an instantaneous speed throughout the country. This was in 1972 and the album was called Reasoning. Some of the songs from this album, most notably the super-hit "Downspout", have become extremely popular.
It all began in 1967, when a rock group was created by the students of the Moscow Power Engineering Institute Sergey Kharitonov (guitar, vocals), Yuri Lashkarev (bass) and the student of Moscow Engineering Physics Institute Viktor Gusev (drums), who studied at Lashkarev in the same class. Then the guys called themselves a group "Behemoths", and in the English transcription it sounded "Hippopotamus". "Behemoths" performed songs from the repertoire of "Shadows", "Bee Gees" and other English beat ensembles and some of their own songs.


The recording of this album took place in the legendary basement at No. 75 on Leningradsky Prospekt, where the Sokol group once rehearsed.

=============================================

The first ever Czechoslovak LP album by a rock group.

The first edition of about 5000 copies was released in the picture sleeve designed by J. A. Pacák, identical for mono/stereo pressings.

Subsequent represses were distributed in various flavors of neutral preprinted Supraphon sleeves, some with overprinted credits in black letterpress, some blank. The LP was repressed a several times, but probably not after 1970.

The album was first reissued in 1991 with a completely different cover artwork as a part of the “Trezor” edition series, Supraphon 10 0412-4 311 (MC), 10 0412-2 311 (CD). The last known CD reissue was released in 2019, Supraphon SU 6206-2, remastered with bonus tracks and digipack sleeve.

The Matadors - The Matadors (1968)

The Matadors - The Matadors (1968)

Repost


Czech psychedelic garage rock and rhythm’n’blues group, formed in early 1965. The classic line-up broke up in summer 1968 with the departure of Viktor Sodoma, Jan F. Obermayer and Radim Hladík. Otto Bezloja and Tony Black (3) with new members then secured a prestigious gig in Munich, West Germany: in 1968–1969 they worked as the backing band for the German version of musical “Haare (Hair)”, under Hanus Berka’s musical direction. In Germany, they were sometimes also credited as “The Broadway Matadors”. The nucleus of the last incarnation then formed Emergency (6) in 1970.
Since the mid-1970s two Matadors tracks were also repeatedly unofficially released in Germany under the name “Steve Cannings”.
In the 2000s the group has partially reunited, still occasionally performing as a “special guest” of Radim Hladík’s The Blue Effect as of 2010.

=====================================
The second ever Czechoslovak LP album by a rock group (after Olympic – Želva).

Due to insufficient supply of the original domestic album artwork, a significant part of the edition was distributed in various flavors of neutral preprinted Supraphon sleeves, some with overprinted credits in black letterpress, some blank. The original domestic vinyl release (0 13 0493, 1 13 0493) may have been repressed a few times, but not after 1970.

The PZO Artia export release with different cover artwork (SUA 13992, SUA ST 53992) was repressed until the late 1970s. The time window of each pressing is identifiable by three digits printed on the side A center label: ‘68 2’ (2nd half of 1968), ‘69 1’ (1st half of 1969), ‘69 2’ (2nd half of 1969), ‘70 1’ (1st half of 1970), etc. The last known documented pressing to date appears to be ‘79 2’.

The first reissue on CD was the 1995 compilation The Matadors, Bonton 71 0244-2, including all but two seven-inch and compilation only tracks as a bonus.

The second reissue on CD was released in February 2010, Supraphon SU 6002-2, including the original SP/EP tracks with Viktor Sodoma, plus four bonus live tracks from 2007 (actually perfromed by The Blue Effect featuring Viktor Sodoma and Jan F. Obermayer).

An unauthorized, unofficial CD reissue was released 2006 in South Korea, World Psychedelia Ltd. WPC6-8496. The tracks are identical to Bonton 71 0244-2, including errors, but in different order. The booklet cover is a scan of the Artia export release (SUA 13992/SUA ST 53992).

Mosvichi (группа Москвичи) - Live in "Vremena Goda" hall (USSR)

Mosvichi (группа Москвичи) - Live in

Talking about rock 'n' roll Moscow, one cannot but recall the beat-group "Moskvichi", which was born in the house number 6 on Universitetsky Prospect, in the apartment where the Shapovalov brothers lived: Victor, Vladimir and Valery...


Members :

Mosvichi (группа Москвичи) - Live in



Viktor SHapovalov - drums
Vladimir SHapovalov - rhythm guitar
Valerij SHapovalov - solo guitar
Aleksej Cejtlin - bass guitars

Auto-translate article "VALEROCK: ТИПО МОЯ «ЖИЗНЬ В ИСКУССТВЕ».



"  It became impossible to rehearse with drums at home and we had to find a base. As a result, the club * "Krasnaya Roza" at the Moscow textile factory, which is on the street. Timur Frunze, became the base of our group, which we called "Moskvichi". Since 1965, we began to rehearse there, and for this we played free dances for the factory workers on holidays. The group consisted of us, three brothers Shapovalovs (Victor (drums), Valery (solo guitar) and Vladimir (rhythm guitar)), and Vladik played on the electric organ. After he left, we decided to play without organ at all.

* "Red Rose" club

In our group, sometimes different individual singers sang, but still we gravitated towards instrumental music ...
I recently visited the Central Park of Culture and Leisure. Gorky and stood for a little while at the two-storey building of the ** Vremena Goda cafe. Today everything looks like after the atomic bombing, but earlier, in the late 60s, this was the only place in Moscow where a beat group played every day. And this was our group “Moskvichi"

Electron - Surf 1965-1970  Russia (ex USSR)


In 1963, the Yunost radio station introduced the audience to a young pop group - the Electron quartet. “We decided to call our ensemble that way,” wrote the lider  of “Electron” Valery Prikazchikov, “not only because it is based on power tools. Electron "to some extent expresses these aspirations of ours."  "Electron" was  be  one of the most popular pop group, successfully performing in many cities of the country with solo programs and with famous pop artists. True, its composition has changed over the years, hence the other name - "New Electron". Its artistic director is still Valery Prikazchikov (electric guitar), the rest of the participants - V. Gerkulenko (organ), V. Pankratov (drums), V. Zaikin (bass guitar). The main thing in the repertoire of the "New Electron" is pop and dance...
