    This is almost totally spoiled for me by the style of trumpet playing. I dislike excessive vibrato in brass playing for most types of music, and this is excessive squared. This kind of vibrato only belongs in a Jazz club (Louis Armstrong for example) or on the soundtrack to a Spaghetti Western, it has no place in Russian folk music. I’ve been to Russia, I’ve heard folk music played and sung by the locals (those Russian bass voices are to die for), and the locals don’t play like this.

    What makes it all the greater pity is that technically this is a fine transfer. Wonderful discrete quad, all four speakers used well with instruments in the rears, only a hint of vinyl surface noise and none of the CD-4 bugbears. Malcolm did a great job on this his last CD-4 transfer for the blog. I just wish he’d picked a different album.

      It was actually one from my collection i sent down to be done. We both wanted it hear it, so i guess we’re both to blame 😦

      I’m not saying others won’t like it, just being clear that I don’t and I can’t see how the style suits this music.

      But it’s your blog and if yourself and Malcolm wanted to hear it then that’s fine. The world thrives on our differences (or maybe not if you’re Ukranian at the moment).

    Is this another Malcolm Piper transfer like the other CD-4s?

      I sent him some of my CD-4 albums, and this is the one of the last of the transfers he did before his health issues forced him to stop
