The action of this intellectual drama takes place in the 1960s. Two young nuclear scientists – the possessed experimentator Gusev and the skeptical theoretician-physicist Kulikov – are old friends, both in love with the same girl, Lyolia. In the course of his scientific experiments, Gusev gets a possibly fatal dose of radiation. Despite the doctors’ warnings of life-threatening danger, the scientist wouldn’t stop his quest for the truth, although his days may be numbered… Starring in the principal roles were the most prominent Russian actors Innokenty Smoktunovsky and Alexei Batalov.
The strong mainstream dance label Deconstruction celebrated a great year with a compilation of their best, including club hits by M People, Lionrock, Definitive Two and N Joi.
Waters' The Real Folk Blues and More Real Folk Blues, combined here onto one CD, were not exactly random collections of tracks – the quality was too consistently high for them to just have been picked out of a hat. Still, it was a pretty arbitrary grouping of items that he recorded between 1947 and 1964. In fact, they hail from throughout his whole stint at Chess, virtually; at the time these albums were first issued, though, all of the material on More Real Folk Blues was from the late '40s and early '50s. They didn't exactly concentrate on his most well-known songs, but they didn't entirely neglect them either, including "Mannish Boy," "Walking Thru the Park," "The Same Thing," "Rollin' & Tumblin' Part One," "She's Alright," and "Honey Bee," amongst somewhat more obscure selections. So ultimately, this disc's usefulness depends on your fussiness as a collector – if it's the only Waters you ever pick up, you'll still have a good idea of his greatness, and if you don't mind getting some tracks you might already have on more avowedly best-of sets, you'll probably hear some stuff you don't already have in your collection.
Pretty much exactly what it says it is – a combination of the two releases, the Bloodied But Unbowed compilation and the War On 45 EP, on one compact disc. The remastering job is fine, the cover art is all reproduced, and there are even complete lyrics, with one or two exceptions. Anyone wanting to give these guys a listen should start right here.
