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