Streaming on Qobuz (96/24)… continuing on this afternoon and taking John’s December 2018 album release out for a spin… played a few of his albums yesterday and enjoy his songwriting, lyrics, music and vocals, and this afternoon he and the band is sounding mighty fine!


Google/Wikipedia refer to La Folia which was also mentioned here Handel's Sarabande and Beethoven's 7th Symphony 2nd movement?
With a cross reference to Tangerine Dream and Vangelis.
How that connects to Russia, I’m not sure


Lovely but I did feel that all the chat made it difficult to listen to again and again!

Thanks had look

Regarding Russian it just sounded like something the Red Army Choir would sing / hum.

I think your reference to La Folia is the answer.
Handel’s Sarabande was ‘covered’ by Sky one of my favourite groups form my youth which is subconsciously where I remember it from.
