Song titles are transliterated; translated titles are in italics. Translated lyrics are available if the translated titles are linked. All mistakes are mine; all the originals belong to the Russian filkers.

Picture captions:

"Without cobblestones in pockets, without a tsar at the head...."

"...where in night's darkness the bagpipes sing of freedom..."

"...we lived like we sang, and got drunk on better songs..."

And this is Valera Mustafin.

Of course when ahead, titles wait endlessly...

"Where the wood is taller than the sky,
Where water feels like mead on the feet,
Where death is - the last victory,
And birth is - freedom,
Where sunrise is - the child of night
And sunset is - the child of light,
Where every glance is - this fount
Of understanding - and this -
This is not my homeland..."

How Much Money (Audioproject from "Fangorn Video")

It was made like this. In Kazan at the beginning of November, two interesting events occurred. First, Zilantcon , to which all good people flocked together, at least in the central regions of Russia; and the BG concert. At this, which we enjoyed hearing, we shut up for Elfishe (Slava Ivantsov from the town of Orska, which is on the Orenburg steppes...), and - since he hasn't come to his senses yet - we dragged him into the studio (honestly, the sound of his voice is not very _____) ;) and as a result... on November 5-6, 1998, in the wonderful city of Kazan, in the studio "Siberian Tract" that nice guy Valera Mustafin recorded (good recording!) 19 songs by Elfishe (60 minutes long), from which a compact disk and audio cassette album was made called "How Much Money", which in free translation into Russian is "How Much Is Happiness These Days"....

And here is the songs' full text (sworn over by Askar, whom he individually thanks); the right of the author is not abridged - in connection with whom there is a little "lacuna".

For this CD, the opening edition (for now) was 13. ;) Here are examples of the cover-- this side and that.
