Paul McCartney recorded a version of Fats Domino’s ‘I’m In Love Again’, which was a bonus track on the 1991 CD release of Choba B CCCP.

The song was written by Domino and his long-term collaborator and producer Dave Bartholomew. It was released as a double a-side single in 1956, with ‘My Blue Heaven’, and became Domino’s fifth number one on the Billboard R&B chart in the USA.

The bulk of the Choba B CCCP recordings were made on 20 July 1987, with McCartney on vocals and bass guitar, Mick Green on guitar, Mick Gallagher on pianos, and Chris Whitten on drums. They recorded 12 known songs: ‘Kansas City’, ‘Twenty Flight Rock’, ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, ‘I’m In Love Again’, ‘Bring It On Home To Me’, ‘Lucille’, ‘I’m Gonna Be A Wheel Someday’, ‘That’s All Right (Mama)’, ‘Summertime’, ‘Just Because’, ‘Midnight Special’, and ‘It’s Now Or Never’.

There were initially no plans to release the recordings as an album, and an edited version of ‘I’m In Love Again’ was first released as one of the b-sides of the Flowers In The Dirt-era single ‘This One’.

Choba B CCCP was first released in the Soviet Union in 1988, and worldwide three years later. The vinyl and cassette international editions added the songs ‘I’m Gonna Be A Wheel Someday’ and ‘Summertime’, while the compact disc edition of the international release included ‘I’m In Love Again’ as an extra track.
