"Sports & Music" from USSR
« on: April 01, 2020, 06:24:59 PM »
I present you the LP series from Soviet state label "Melodiya" (Melody) called "Sports & Music"

There were 5 mini-LPs on 45 rpm intended for aerobics

https://www.discogs.com/label/271312-Спорт-и-Музыка-Sport-and-Music

First was PULSE-1
https://www.discogs.com/А-Родионов-Б-Тихомиров-Пульс-1-Музыкальный-Компьютер/master/481010
"Musical Computer" by Andrey Rodionov (side A) and Boris Tihomirov (side B)
https://www72.zippyshare.com/v/lj62NflX/file.html
both composers were pioneers of Soviet computer music

*After Pulse-1, Rodionov + Tihomirov released second LP "512 Kbytes" (memory value of their computer)))

https://www2.zippyshare.com/v/ZWfOPaWB/file.html
it sounds very outdated and silly now, but 35 years ago it was very revolutionary (especially at Soviet censored music scene)


PULSE-2 was
https://www.discogs.com/Zigmar-Liepinš-Пульс-2-Pulse-2/master/324844
Latvian (former USSR republic) composer Zigmar Liepinš, mostly known as songwriter, but there was his special instrumental program

Then PULSE-3
https://www.discogs.com/Арсенал-Пульс-3-Pulse-3/master/322508
by famous Soviet jazz band "Arsenal"
https://www5.zippyshare.com/v/zmeNFSD6/file.html
I need to say that very big massive of music by Arsenal (jazz-rock) is not similar to this LP (synth-funk-jazz). Full synth-funk-jazz program didn't fit into this LP and was released some years later on CD
https://www.discogs.com/Арсенал-Nostalgie/release/10871142
very rare and expensive item now. The CD-rip is here:

The last PULSE-4
https://www.discogs.com/Владимир-Осинский-Аэротон/master/477446
by Valery Osinski and his band "Aeroton"
https://www12.zippyshare.com/v/ygwKzVNV/file.html

And finally, not numbered but belonging to this series LP
https://www.discogs.com/Various-Ритмическая-Гимнастика-Aerobic-Exercises/release/5470740
LP for aerobic excersises, but it doesn't contain pure music, you can hear coach commands through all the LP
https://www31.zippyshare.com/v/GGpOwrZ2/file.html

That's all!
Enjoy))
* the rip titles are in Russian, hope you can play them without problems
