|"Volga Notions is a contradance music milepost; a number of KGB's originals go right to the heart, and you'll find yourself humming them after only a couple of listens. Prepare to float, twirl, bop, sway, swing, smile, marvel to, and cherish the rooted but forward-looking creativity, fun diversity of styles, and inspiring instrumental talent of Seattle's best contradance band!" - NEFFA News|
KGB's 2nd recording, Volga Notions, is subtitled "Contradance Music for the Critical Masses," a 64 minutes sample of our dance repertoire from 1999, slanted towards the tunes we've written. It includes the bluesy jig Ferris Eugene, the gypsy-influenced Iron Curtain Breakdown, the hypnotic Oddville Cupola, high energy reels, and three delectable waltzes. It is available on CD and cassette.
Unlike Contra-intelligence, the music on this album is formatted for dancing or calling practice. Three tracks are waltzes, two are jig medleys, five are reel medleys, and one is a jig-to-reel medley.
You can also order Volga Notions from Contracopia (more soundclips there, too) or from other places listed here.
