Catalog no. C 01655-6. Twelve-inch vinyl LP in original sleeve. The disc is near fine with only a faint scratch on the first two songs on side “A” which is not audible on my turntable. The sleeve is good with wear to the edges and corners, and an old wax crayon mark on the front cover that reads “Import.” Includes the original plastic inner sleeve. Performed by the Brass Band of the USSR Ministry of Defense, conducted by N. Nazarov, N. Sergeyev, A. Khachaturyan, and Niyazi. This LP is all orchestral, no singing. Includes the national anthem of the Soviet Union, as well as the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, Byelorussian, Kazakh, Azerbaijan, Moldavian, Kirghiz, Armenian, Ukrainian, Uzbek, Georgian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Tajik, and Turkmen anthems. The Soviet anthem, composed by Alexander Alexandrov, is really quite stirring, as in the Georgian. The Russian Soviet anthem isn’t very good, but it’s long. This is an enjoyable listen, but I had the uneasy feeling that the Bulgarian Quidditch team was going to storm in at any minute!
