Recording information by SvetttaGOLD

for Round 5 of Song an Dance

the task was to choose a very special song, so this one maybe interesting to tell about... when i was 15 my Dad brought an LP of Boston. the special thing is, as we lived in a post- SovieT Union country we didn't have access to cool music or high quality LPs... and this one was from the USA and the envelope was so beautiful and , what was the most important! it had lyrics at the back side. It was a real treasure for me. Of course i liked the music itself, and i started learning these songs and it appeared that i easily catch the tune. so i thought (as any teenager probably thinks) that i should become a singer))) so it was the very first song I ever recorded in my life (at home with a bad mic, sitting near the dynamics singing together with the LP and recording it on tape recorder) you can imagine what was the sound on that tape))) i guess i still have this tape somewhere in my father's house )))

Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they have to say something. PLATO

Love this song ...have not heard it in ages...but What a memory of it for you!! How exciting...I know the feeling in reverse, as I studied German and Russian in High School...ANYTHING from Germany would be amazing (my pen pal sent me things...but I didn't hear German Pop music until later)...As for Russian music...I only heard folk music..and enjoyed the rhythms and chords and folk dances...but had no idea what Popular Modern music would have been like in the Early and Mid 1960s. I would have been thrilled with

Your vocals are always lovely and make me think of the originals...clearly you Can sing and your childhood dream has not gone to waste here...I LOVE all your entries. Have a Wonderful Holiday Season, Sveta!!! See you Next Journey!!
