давайте танцевать!

I used an online translator for the title. It is an invitation to move the body to a rhythm. This rhythm is a disco beat with spacy synthesizers à la Quartz or Droids or Arpadys or any of that spatial french goodies. This LP was released in '82. They have at least one other out. I used to have that one maybe 10 years ago, but didn't like and gave it away. Was that a mistake?
I've seen it a few times on ebay, but the price was always far more than the 1 Deutsche Mark I've paid back then. Now I have this here and I'm quite confident with it. The title is "Music in the universe" and the back cover says that the "Programme is dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Soviet astronautics".
Right on!


01. A Mysterious Galaxy 04:45

06. The Saturn's Delight 03:47
07. Flight Over El Dorado 05:07

Actually, the translation literally means, "Give Dance".

Personally, will take "Give Wodka" over dance any day.

Nice blog!!

basso said...

the online translator i used says that i means "let's dance" but anyway i'm with the wodka.

Hi Basso.
i'm from Russia. So actually your last translation "Let's dance" is correct. But this is just slogan.
Btw the real name of this group
is Zodiak and the name of the album
is "Music In The Universe"
It was released in 1982 by the band from Lithuania.
best regards & thx for your posts

Hi basso!
First, I guessed like that.
I tried to type password.

Then divshare said
• Sorry, that password is incorrect.

The other I tried is Password, PASSWORD, ..........
But still same thing going.
Do probably because of fucking safari or firefox?

So thank you for advice, basso.
