Black Russian - Leave me now 1980

This single is not rare and is not expensive. However many collectors don't really know this group.



Black Russian were Serge Kapustin, his wife Natasha and her brother Vladimir Shneider. They are dissident Soviet Jews who immigrated to the U.S. in 1976.
The Motown label signed them (as one of its rare white acts) and issued their debut LP, Black Russian in 1980. Also Motown released a single entitled “Leave Me Now”.
It is included on the album "Black Russian". Music by Serge Kapustin and lyrics by Serge Kapustin and the great Allee Willis. Produced and arranged by themself.




Note: The above posted single is not played in full

Natasha Shneider died in 2008.

I had the original vinyl album in 1979. It got warped when my things were in storage while I was on the road playing. I threw it away, now I wish I would have kept it for the archives. They played on a daytime tv show one time called "The Dina Shore show"...that's how I heard about them.
