Help on how to EQ a 1980s Eastern European record?, Romanian, 1988, to be specific.

I have a record I want to digitize, Bună Seara, Iubito! by Loredana Groza, released in Romania in 1988, so just slightly before the end of Communism and I expect the adoption of the RIAA standard. The RIAA EQ clearly sounds wrong with it too much bass, not enough treble and what little information I could find from searching indicates that CCIR was the EQ curve used in Eastern Europe at the time. Assuming this is right (and hopefully it is), does anyone have any ideas of how to get this to sound right, preferably without having to buy a 1980s vintage Eastern European receiver? I can EQ it by ear and make it sound good, but I'd like it to be closer to correct than that. Google turns up nothing for a phono preamp with CCIR built in. Maybe somebody has CCIR specifications I could mimic? Fingers crossed it's not some Romania-only, or worse, single company-only, modification to the curve.

Did you see this?

EDIT: I also have a sort of glossary/mini-encyclopaedia of audio and video published in Poland in the 1980s, I cannot find it now, but don't recall any correction curve plots there. If I find it and if there is any information there, I'll post it here.

Ceterum censeo, there should be an "%is_stop_after_current%".
