Liverpool Academy of Arts presents Beatles exhibition Back From the USSR (GALLERY)

It was 1968 when the Beatles sang ‘you don’t know how lucky you are boy, back in the USSR’. But being discovered listening to those lyrics would leave you very unlucky indeed if you lived in the old Soviet Union at the time.The Fab Four were deemed unsuitable for Soviet ears by the Kremlin (they were denounced as ‘capitalist pollution’ and Beatlemania as an ‘ugly manifestation of bourgeois culture’), and possession of their records could get you into big trouble.So much for all you need is love.Still, dedicated Soviet Beatles fans were undeterred and developed some ingenious ways of getting round the restrictions.
