Background: Released in 1988 only in the Soviet Union, Снова В СССР, also known as “The Russian Album,” was the seventh solo album by Paul McCartney.
This album of rock & roll oldies — “Lucille,” “Twenty Flight Rock,” and others — was recorded in two days in July, 1987, and released exclusively in the Soviet Union in 1988. It finally saw release in the U.S. in 1991 with one extra track, “I’m in Love Again,” added. McCartney gives a spirited reading to the songs, which, it may be noted, are in some cases (“Ain’t That a Shame,” “Just Because”) the same ones chosen by John Lennon for his similar Rock ‘N’ Roll album. But McCartney is characteristically more eclectic, including such ringers as “Summertime” and “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore.”
