Muslim Magomaev (Azerbaijani by origin) is one of the best and well-known Soviet singers. Unfortunately, the big part of his songs was forbidden by the State censorship as inappropriate for the Soviet ideology, but of course there were some exceptions, like this one. The song about Baku, the capital of the former Soviet republic Azerbaijan, called "Baku, my city", is considered as one of the most
non-typical Soviet musical hits. It was written in the funk style, what was unusual for the USSR era by itself. And Muslim Magomaev in this video clip looks like Sean Connery in the movie about James Bond. But the clip has passed the censorship, because of the positive impression about Baku and the USSR it created. Also in this clip one can see Baku of the Soviet times.
