Bravo (1987) - Bravo-All about the album…

Filming of clips, concerts and tours all over the country have begun! Ahead of "Bravo" was waiting for a lot more difficulties ... But the guys did not know about it yet.

"Bravo" (1987) - the Soviet album that conquered Europe ...

We can say that Moscow rightfully belongs to the legendary group "Bravo" ... In any case, it says so on their official website! And it’s difficult, and I don’t want to argue with this: is it possible to imagine this beautiful, eternally sleepless metropolis without them, the main metropolitan dudes?

It was the provocative outfits, sticky rock and roll motifs and, of course, the cosmic voice of Zhanna Aguzarova that made the group a legend! And not only in the expanses of the USSR ...

The release of the album "Bravo" became a cult event in the career of the young band... The record brought the band a huge success and was released in Finland! Actually, about everything in order.

Album "Bravo": background, recording ...

In 1985, the group's affairs slowly began to improve. Vocalist Zhanna Aguzarova returned from exile, a series of concerts began ... The fans were happy, because Bravo began to release new songs!

A year later, the group acquired a useful acquaintance with Alla Pugacheva herself! The patronage of the Primadonna played a big role: "Bravo" was first invited to the central television, after which their success skyrocketed! Rock festivals, official status - and now, finally, the band received its well-deserved award, wide public recognition ...

Touring abroad!

Recordings of the second official and fourth serial album have begun. It is worth noting that the band's early recordings were very raw in sound... And the point here is not in the music, but in quality, or rather, literally in its absence...

We can say that 1987 was a very eventful and fruitful year for the rock band: first, recording an album on professional equipment, then the first big tour abroad ... True, Sergei Lapin did not manage to share a moment of glory with his colleagues, because he was denied a visa ... during the entire tour, he was replaced by Timur Murtuzaev.

It just so happened that the freshly baked Bravo record got to Finland before it saw the Soviet Union. The foreign audience was delighted with the music of the Soviet collective! The songs "Bravo" were played on all kinds of broadcasts! It is not surprising that very soon an offer was received to release the album in Finland ...

Let's go back to the fact that the organizers of the tour really liked the album! However, having requested a soundtrack, they were disappointed with the quality... As a result, the sound engineer from England had to "conjure" the tracks properly!

Of course, the Bravo participants were generously rewarded (at that time): Aguzarova received a then-fashionable denim suit, and the leader Evgeny Khavtan received an expensive Finnish tape recorder! But that was not the point. The main thing was that the music of the Soviet group gained great success abroad ...

 After some time, the disc was released in the USSR. The main hit from her was the famous song about "Yellow Shoes"! To this day, this composition remains the calling card of the group.

As for the album, it was sold in millions of copies! Of course, this level of excitement elevated the group to the Olympus of glory ... The shooting of clips, concerts and tours all over the country began! Ahead of the "Bravo" was waiting for a lot more difficulties ... But the guys did not know about it yet.
