Blue vinyl from USSR

We've come across a fair bit of coloured vinyl lately, of one sort or another. And we've chanced upon another example, from an LP pressed in the Soviet Union in the 1970s:

This is one of 20 or so different editions of an album called Variety's Orbit (see here), which contains two tracks by the Top of the Poppers, these being "Sugar Me" and "Living in Harmony" from our own volume 26.

The translucent blue vinyl is very impressive - nothing like this was released by Hallmark in the UK. (The sleeve, by the way, is generic.)

This particular example is from Uzbekistan, pressed in the city of Tashkent. Those who haven't heard of this LP before may be surprised to know that copies pressed in Moscow are also known in coloured vinyl - three varieties have been discovered so far:

Pretty neat!

Our thanks to Shumov Konstantin for the images.
