The Best Songs of Ukrainian Variety Art of XX ct. Part 2. Golden collection.
I generally do not really like various collections – practically regardless of what music they comprise. Just because I often prefer to go as deeply as possible – and that is why I try to listen to complete albums, not fragments. I know that this is my personal business. But I mention it here only because exceptions happen there – and the today's disk is one of them. The compilers of this collection have already for the second time, it seems to me, succeeded in doing the almost impossible – drawing the integral picture based on not just separate fragments, but on self-sufficient ones. Each of the songs represented here may already by itself be a bright representation of a whole epoch. Every voice, every melody, every text are the treasure of Ukrainian variety art tested by time. That is why it is both a little strange, and pleasant that songs on the disk do not compete among themselves, but complement each other, mutually emphasize the advantages. And as a result – there is no that feeling as when you listen to a collection. No. In this case – you listen to an integral, harmonious album. You listen to the uniform mood, time, space... Actually, the very existence of exceptions justifies, although partly, existence of the majority of rules...

By its mood, the music represented here somehow reminds beginnings of the American jazz. Actually, these songs, almost all of them without exception, contain the special, touching secret of the naive and sincere sounding. The modern variety art no longer contains such a mystery, and, presumably, will never have it again.
