"The diary, written during the early 1950's, reminisces about his early life, escaping the turmoil of revolution and civil war and meeting his future wife, Fatima. Whilst crossing many borders via Constantinople, they lived briefly in Paris in the late 20's and early 30's, eventually reaching and settling in Santiago, Chile. The diary itself is for me exceptional, in as much as it's historical as well as personal, and contains recollection of thoughts and views written in a type of free-verse poetic form, with intermittent drawings and sketches. It's uniqueness is perhaps the story it tells of a time that was challenging, dramatic and tragic, and of his nostalgia for his homeland that never left his mind. The bulk of the compositions on this album attempt to reflect on the various stages of his and Fatima's lives as written in Kurakin's Diary. The Best Of Here And Now' (composed by Les Booth) is a dedication to John Coltrane, whilst 'Lost Wedding', is a musical depiction of not able to find a wedding ceremony (but eventually doing so) in Southern Italy. 'Nobody's Waltz' is also everybody's waltz, and 'Alternative Switch' is a celebration of new technology and communication." - Vladimir Miller

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50˘ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
