Another Variation of McCartney’s Choba b CCCP

Another variation of Paul McCartney’s Russian album Снова в СССР has come into the collection. I found another version on Ebay which I didn’t have. It was listed by an Australian seller (so postage was relatively safe, fast and cheap). It was also at a very reasonable price and so I couldn’t resist:

Снова в СССР is Russian for “Back in the USSR” and last time I posted on this was way back in 2010 when I detailed some of the other variations in my collection. I had five different vinyl pressings then, plus the CD edition, but there are actually almost too many variations of this LP to count. This latest one I have comes from the Aprelevka pressing plant which was just on the outskirts of Moscow. It’s the 1989, thirteen track version.

You can see all the many variations of this disc at the amazing The Beatles Get Back in the USSR website. To get to the key Снова в СССР entries go to the site’s pages detailing the original 11 track release; the more common 13 track release (which we have here); and the very rare mis-pressed 12 track release. As well as the many label variations from the different Russian pressing plants you’ll be able to explore the many cover variations in the printing of this album as well.

  1. The numerous variations of the CHOBA B CCCP albums made in the USSR have been discussed lately on rec.music.beatles.

  2. I was a fresh H.S. grad and was on a teen study trip to the former U.S.S.R. in the summer of ’89 when this album came out. They said it was only available there so I bought about a half dozen (vinyl only of course) for just a few U.S. dollars and gave them away to friends as gifts.

  3. Hello everybody,
    I recently found out, that I own one of these first 50.000 vinyl discs.
    What is it worth for interested buyers at the moment?
