Those were the days

A photo by Vincent Jansen of an old Citroen DS forgotten in a car graveyard made me grab my guitar and sing “Those were the days…” –
Car Graveyard

The title of the composition is “Dorogoy dlinnoyu” which means “By a long road…” or the British cover version is “Those were the days”. The author of the music is Boris Fomin – a great musician who was hated by Stalinists.
