Here's something you don't see every day:
Prince Igor opera by Alexander Borodin performed by the Bolshoi Theater State Orchestra recorded in the USSR
and released on ASCH label as a 5 (12") record album set in late 1945, album 800.  After WWII and before the
USSR became the cold war bad guys.  Probably didn't sell a lot of these albums in the U.S. after 1948 or so.
I found some of these recordings with matching matrix numbers on the USSR label, this album is most likely
pressed from those masters.
Enjoy!  CDB
