The live-in-studio CHOBA B CCCP (Russian for “Back In The USSR”) was released in the Soviet Union in 1988, making Paul the first Western artist to issue an album exclusively for that market. In a conscious decision to get back to his roots, Paul spontaneously spent two days covering his favorite hits from the 1950s. The sessions produced 22 songs in total (and one of the outtakes being a version of The Beatles' 'I Saw Her Standing There'). CHOBA B CCCP was a deeply personal album and a way to acknowledge fans who had supported him and The Beatles since the start. “When I was very young I asked my dad if people wanted peace,” Paul explained at the time. “He said to me, ‘Yes, people everywhere want peace – it’s usually politicians that cause trouble.’ It always seemed to me that the way The Beatles’ music was admired in the USSR tended to prove his point, that people the world over have a great deal in common. In releasing this record exclusively in the Soviet Union, I extend the hand of peace and friendship to the people of Russia.” CHOBA B CCCP was released in the rest of the world following the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.

CHOBA B CCCP has been newly remastered at Abbey Road Studios and will be reissued as the original 11-track Russian release.

Available here on 180g black vinyl. Also available on CD and limited edition opaque yellow vinyl. All come with insert.
