Russian Surf - Valery Prikazchikov's Electron Quartet / New Electron Quartet

BIG SHOUT THANK YOU to Tru of TrustarVibrations and Black Sea Surfer.

They have answered the mystery and given the info we all needed. Here is the revised post properly done .......

First wave Russian surf recorded in 1965, called Electron or Elektron -depending. Solid melodies and structures, a little more bouncy poppy than the native surf of the same period. Short slabs of fun twang. Enjoy.

Translated tracklist:
(I also had to use a translator for some words, so mistakes are possible)

01 Return 02 Melody From The Movie "Boom"
03 Sun Dial 04 Cheerful Tourists 05 The Fourth Orbit 06 Evening Shades 07 Melody From The Movie "Umbrellas From Cherbourg" 08 Look 09 House Of The Rising Sun 10 New Dance
11 Lullaby For Svetlana 12 Watussi 13 Dreams 14 Steps In The Night 15 A Faster Sound
16 The Shade Of Your Smile 17 Sunbeams 18 Perpetual Motion

Original post --Need help identifying this - am clueless. Russian surf that sounds like it is from the 60's first wave in style, instrumentation, and song structure. I think it is really modern surf done retro - but - hey - what do I know. If someone can identify it and point me in the direction for a track list not in Russian, I'd really appreciate it. Enjoy it anyway, it's pretty cool.

It's called Surf by Elektron, a Russian group. And you are correct, it was 1st generation surf recorded in 1965. No help with the translation of the tracklist though. When run through Google Translator it just gives me the same phrase back.

Always willing to lend a hand.

I'll try to call you Friday afternoon to see what's up.

Track 16 is a fine cover of 'The Shadow Of Your Smile' for the correct title. I'll try to check others against some of Chet Atkins work as I hear one or two that strike a chord with me...

Track 2 is the one I was thinking of that Chet Atkins did. His is titled 'Wheels'.
