2014 reissue of Russian singer and poet Yuri Loza's 1983 debut album Puteshestvie V Rock-n-Roll (Journey to Rock'n'Roll). When this album originally appeared, rock 'n' roll was as scandalous in Russia as it was in the U.S. during the 1950s, and Puteshestvie V Rock-n-Roll shocked many upon its release. Its bare-bones aesthetic, with only voice, two guitars, and a drum machine, resembles a kind of Russian pub rock, with positive, comical lyrics about the harsh realities of everyday life in the Soviet Union. "Devochka v bare (A Girl in the Bar)" became a 1983 club hit throughout the USSR, though the media derided it as tasteless. Puteshestvie V Rock-n-Roll has since become a legendary cult recording, and is now reissued with a previously unreleased track, "Kubik-Rubik (Rubik's Cube)." This reissue also includes an inner sleeve printed with some original Russian media reactions to the album. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
