Allan Mikusek and Michal Tucny

Gotta post this video....Slovak country singer Allan Mikusek sings a duet with Michal Tucny, the late, great Czech country singer who was a real star of the genre in Czechoslovakia.

Mikusek, who is still very active, looks very young in this clip -- and he was. Tucny died in 1995 at the age of 48.

One of Tucny's best known songs was "The Last Cowboy," recorded in, I think, 1980.

I love the video: it says so much about the way the Imaginary Wild West was lived out in people's minds -- here, in the dreary dark days of Communism:

I like the music even if I can't understand the words.
