Mesojme Anglisht - Lesson 3

Lesson 3

"My name is Sasha Abramovich. I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. I came to London in March 2000. The song is All Shook Up. It's about love and you know that's great…

The first I met Elvis [was] in my childhood. My father spent three years in Indonesia in the early 60's and he brought some tapes from there and on these tapes there were different sorts of music, but of course Elvis. And so that's how the whole thing started.

My father told me in the later 50's when Elvis was so huge in the United States and all over the world, the early rock and roll years, you couldn't buy his records at all in Russia and he was literally banned.

Of course, some people knew about him and they were listening to radio stations and they knew Elvis was great. So what they did, they did [made] their own records - somehow some people managed to smuggle the records. And what they did they used X-ray film - you could actually see the ribs - yes, and they used X-ray film to cut the record.

We had some very bad copies. We used to trade copies, exchange copies, tapes. It was usually third or fourth copy - very bad quality. You could just hear some scratches and noises and then 'Oh, All Shook Up", Oh, but that was great - that was pure Elvis."

"Hi, this is Elvis Presley. I guess the first thing people want to know is why I can't stand still when I'm singing. Some people tap their feet; some people snap their fingers and some people just sway back and forth. I just sort of do them all together, I guess."
