While we all know that we shouldn't judge a book (or CD or DVD or magazine) by its cover, sometimes it is impossible not to appreciate the stunning art of a truly well-executed cover. Such is the case with the Very Best of Ivan Rebroff, Volume 2. Look at those majestic robes! The gorgeous brocade work! The classy pinky ring! The beaver-skin hat! Here is a Russian who has it all together.
From the liner notes:
"Volume 1 managed to squeeze in only 17 of his tracks - merely scratching the surface of his recordings! So here now is a nother selection of timeless tunes caressed by the richest, darkest, lowest, highest, most remarkable voice in the world of music."
He apparently has the lowest and highest voice in all of music. Ivan, you are my hero.
