Russian train in watercolour

I stumbled across this 45 rpm record while looking for some old Christmas LPs at my father's house. I like the cover art: a rather striking watercolour painting of a stream train high above a bright winter scene populated with cross-country skiers. I think he bought this record one summer in the International Pavilion at the CNE in the late 60s or early 70s. From the pristine condition of the record, I don't think it had ever been played. I gave it a spin, but the music wasn't to my taste.


  1. Thanks to internet. I am from India. This visual is very old childhood memory of mine. Some how today it just came to mind and searched for 'old russian train paintings' and i stumbled across this. I might have seen this picture during the 80's in one of the soviet union magzines which were very popular in india that time. Thanks for posting.

    1. Thanks for dropping by. It's an interesting record sleeve.
