Information from owned LP.
This is one of three LPs recorded in Moscow in october 1964, the two others being Melodya C10 23415 008 and Melodya C10 23417 002.
The performers listings on 3 LPs are identical and many names are obviously mispelled, so probably the list above is too comprehensive for this LP.
