Paul McCartney- Back in the USSR- Hollywood 2007

Paul McCartney’s performance in Hollywood record store Amoeba Records in 2007 is the stuff of rock legend, so much so that social media conspiracy theorists would attempt to ascribe the notion of a live in-store concert, by one of the most popular musicians of the last seventy years, to be an urban legend were it not for the superbly recorded evidence presented here.

We figured McCartney’s goosebump-inducing performance of “Back in the USSR” that day would be an appropriate appetizer for the two-hour special we are featuring here In the Studio with Sir Paul to mark the fifty-fifth anniversary of the White Album on which the song originally appeared. -Redbeard
