The history of the song "You are not more beautiful"

Today we will talk about the magnificent composition "You are not more beautiful." Beloved by many, it was written in the late 1960s (in 1969). The authors were: Yuri Antonov himself, Irina Bezladnova and Mikhail Belyakov.

Inspiration lit up Antonov (at that time - the keyboard player of the Singing Guitars) during the band's trip to Moldova, right on the train! Yuri composed a heartfelt melody, and his then girlfriend Irina Bezladnova wrote poetry ...

At first, the whole song consisted of two verses! But later Antonov decided that this was not enough. He asked Irina for help, but she refused, citing urgent matters (which, in fact, she bitterly regretted later ...) Then Yuri turned to Mikhail Belyakov, the guitarist of the Good Molodtsy ensemble.

How was the recording...

An interesting fact, but Antonov himself did not participate in the recording, leaving the band ...

“When leaving, Yura left some crumpled sheet ... As it turned out, this was the song! He told me: “Zhenya, I think you will perform this song ...” Actually, that's how it happened! For about half a year this song lay in my notebook until I remembered it. In one night, I painted who and what will play. And we played it! - Evgeny Bronevitsky recalled.

But here's an interesting thing: Bronevitsky, on the contrary, the song seemed too long ... It was decided to remove the second verse and add a guitar solo.

Edition

The composition was released by Melodiya as part of the mini-album Seeing Off (1970).

For the first time the song was performed by the ensemble VIA "Singing Guitars". Later it was performed by Antonov himself.

In the late 80s, she, performed directly by the author himself, supplemented the album called "Life is a fairy tale."
