Vladimir VissotskiLe vol arrêté: A giant influence in Russian culture that inevitably spread around the world, not only due to his foreign connections but the compelling way in which he delivers his songs, growled tunes of controlled acoustic chaos. Take the songwriting influence of Jacques Brel, the political and social criticism of Bob Dylan, and the vocals of Louis Armstrong, and you get the immortal Vladimir Vissotski. He sounds much older than he ever lived to be.
