"Fine on-the-ground reporting here ... [A] worthwhile addition to the Beatles bookshelf.""--Kirkus Reviews

"Leslie Woodhead has given us a priceless addition to Beatle literature--and a beautifully observed and witty insight into the cultural underbelly of the Soviet Union."--Paul Greengrass, director of "The Bourne Supremacy", "The Bourne Ultimatum", "United 93" and "Green Zone"""
"How the Beatles really did come and keep their comrades warm ... a fascinating lost chapter In their history."--Philip Norman, author of "John Lennon: A Life" and "Mick Jagger"
"Forget the triumph of market capitalism. According to Leslie Woodhead, it was the subversive power of art and cultural connection that stoked the fires of freedom and popular revolution, which ultimately brought down the Iron Curtain. A deliciously appealing premise!"--Helena Kennedy QC, President of the School of Oriental and African Studies, London University

""Did the Fab Four bring down the Soviet Empire single-handed? It's a wonderful thought ... Woodhead's book is rather more about Russia than it is about The Beatles, but it's also about the most socialist of concepts, historical inevitability ... In this story the true believers won, and they still believe. You'll read the book with a smile on your face, and a song-possibly written by Lennon and McCartney-in your heart"--"Daily Mail ("UK")""" "In 1962, as a young TV producer, Leslie Woodhead made a short film at Liverpool's Cavern Club about a local pop group who had caught his eye.

Reseña del editor:

Imagine a world where Beatlemania was against the law-recordings scratched onto medical X-rays, merchant sailors bringing home contraband LPs, spotty broadcasts taped from western AM radio late in the night. This was no fantasy world populated by Blue Meanies but the USSR, where a vast nation of music fans risked repression to hear the defining band of the British Invasion.
The music of John, Paul, George, and Ringo played a part in waking up an entire generation of Soviet youth, opening their eyes to seventy years of bland official culture and rigid authoritarianism. Soviet leaders had suppressed most Western popular music since the days of jazz, but the Beatles and the bands they inspired-both in the West and in Russia-battered down the walls of state culture. Leslie Woodhead's How The Beatles Rocked the Kremlin tells the unforgettable-and endearingly odd-story of Russians who discovered that all you need is Beatles. By stealth, by way of whispers, through the illicit late night broadcasts on Radio Luxembourg, the Soviet Beatles kids tuned in. "Bitles," they whispered, "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah."
