"Soviet Army Chorus, Band and Dance Ensemble." Kultur. $59.95. Hungry for squat kicks, onion domes and "The Song of the Volga Boatmen"? Seek no further. Filmed in many picturesque Soviet locations, this 78-minute concert of (mostly) folk ballads is predictably rousing and nostalgic in musical content. However, the visual flair and variety are happy surprises. The inevitable shots of smiling soldiers frequently give place to gorgeous scenic vistas or virtuosic dancing. The music is in stereo, and narration is restricted to summaries of song texts and other need- to-know data. A model of enlightened professionalism. Information: (800) 458-5887. *** 1/2
