In the Band


This photo was taken in Alushta, Crimea in 1975.

The hockey stars of the Red Army and Team CCCP are having fun performing on stage.

Left to right: Vladimir Lutchenko, Alexander Volchkov, Vladislav Tretyak, Valery Kharlamov.

On a side note, the photo is from the summer 1975. The players had a season to celebrate.

They won the 1974 Summit Series against Team Canada (WHA), won the 1975 World Championship in West Germany.

By today view, the cloth looks pretty casual. But, considering that it is in the Soviet Union, it must have been looking rather fancy schmancy for the country behind the Iron curtain.

In a few months, they will have a great 1975 Super Series in North America where they will play vs. Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins, New York Rangers and the Broad Street Bullies in Philadelphia. All four players are in their prime and at the peak of their careers.

Just a blast from 40 years ago.
