Variety Orchestra Oktava – Zapah Lugov {1972}

Egon from Now Again Records writes in Funk Archaeology: From Russia, With Funk:

“Established in 1964, Oktava was the most professional orchestra in Lithuania and was conducted by Mindaugas Tamošiūnas, a composer and trombonist. They backed Lithuanian singers and also appeared on a series of “classical dance education” records (featuring an occasional fuzz guitar and funky rhythm section). In this, their only solo LP, we find two examples of bona-fide Soviet garage rock – a rare beast, indeed. The cover you see here is an export version. There’s translated text on its sleeve, it received a great pressing and has a colorful, high-quality cover. As you might expect, the export version of any Russian record is the rarest and most sought after.”
