Their Address Was The Soviet Union

For these singers, their address was the Soviet Union. Sure they may have been Soviets, but not all of them were Russian. Some came from the Baltics, others from the Soviet Middle East (such as Kazakhstan). Some came from Belarus and the Ukraine. Only one of these singers is actually Russian. Nearly all of them sang in Russian at one point in their careers (they had to, especially if they wanted to be stars), but I have tried to include them singing in their native languages when applicable. And oh yes, their record label, was of course, Melodiya, which was the ONLY record label in the Soviet Union.
