The record this came from broke into three pieces in the mail, so I sent it to a specialist to recover as much of the audio as possible. It was maybe about 90% recovered and I managed to fix most of the rest, but, as you can hear, the third stanza and last line of the song have some noticeable clicking. The other side of the record has the Latvian language version of this song. Here's hoping that it can be recovered too.
