Vinogradov sings “Dark Eyes”

Georgy Pavlovich Vinogradov (Георгий Павлович Виноградов) sings “Dark Eyes” (Очи чёрные)

Probably recorded for All-Union Radio in the 1940s.

This makes a change from me finding examples of A.V. and B.A. Alexandrov settling on a good arrangement early on, then sticking to it for ever, however different the later soloists are. For a start, this is probably not an Alexandrov arrangement. The Alexandrov Ensemble version usually uses a bass as soloist, and the effect is very different.
