Balkanton (1981)

We don't know much about this record, but Dobra Savova seems like a nice lady, and her folk songs from Dobrudzha sounds good to our ears. The label (we went for the anglicized version, rather than messing with the Cyrillic characters) was a state-owned enterprise, and, according to Wikipedia, their releases can still be bought in former Soviet countries. Balkanton also released John Lennon, Kate Bush and Yngwie Malmsteen records, but a perusal of their catalog has introduced us to some interesting Bulgarian record covers that may require further research. If the labels consistently look this nice, we'd be happy to add to our Balkanton collection.
