Ballad of Surplus Value (1968)

Aleksandr Galich. Performed by the author
Description: Galich sings here in the voice of his favorite target and satirical vehicle, a model Soviet citizen and vulgarian. His elementary understanding of communism, and his refusal to let it interfere with his unbounded joy in acquisition, stood for an entire generation of people lost in the race to ‘live the good life.’
