Ever heard the version by Boiled in Lead? Absolutlely brilliant!
(An so much more "Russian")

I know the pop disco one from the 70's and love it; it is impossible to find, I find. Is the "more Russian" one just as catchy? (Probably harder to find....)

The Boiled in Lead version (from their album "Antler Dance") is
very different to the original Boney M version.

While it's almost instantly recognisable as the same song, it is in a much more Russina-Folk-Rock style with heavy guiatrs and fiddle playing, as well as extraordinary vocals. Like I say - 'more Russian'...

There's also a version on their newer "20 years of Rock & Reel" album - see www.omnium.com
