While the focus since the beginning of the year was on the Beatles songs, I have switched to pure McCartney stuff in the past weeks. Year 1987, some live albums, “Run Devil Run“… Don’t ask me the logic, as I sometimes go very random when it comes to organize the work on this project 🙂
Year 1987 – Choba B CCCP
Released in 1988 in the USSR, and three years later in Western countries, the Russian album has been recorded in 2 days of 1987. Discover all the details about the “Choba B CCCP” and related albums:
- Choba B CCCP – the international release from 1991.
- The Last Temptation of Elvis: An All-Star Tribute – A tribute album containing Paul’s contribution – It’s Now Or Never, recorded during the Choba B CCCP sessions.
- This One CD single on which appeared “I Wanna Cry“, the only song recorded during the Choba B CCCP sessions and written by McCartney.
- It’s Now Or Never (The Complete Russian Sessions) – This bootleg contains all officially released songs from the Choba B CCCP sessions, and also the three songs Paul sang during the “Last Resort” TV show recorded in November 1987
- Choba B CCCP Ultimate Archive Collection – Another bootleg that contains all songs from the Choba B CCCP sessions, and the two medleys leaked online in 2010. Indeed the ultimate version of Choba B CCCP !
