Ruby Flipper – Back in the USSR

Top of the Pops, 15 July 1976:
Ruby Flipper dance to The Beatles’ Back in the USSR.

Ruby Flipper go Soviet: the girls in peasant smocks, the guys as furried-up cossacks. EMI re-released (or rather re-promoted) all of their Beatles singles catalogue in 1976, with the result of a smattering of old Beatles numbers in the charts that summer, including this one.

From the old blog, Momnday, 15 February 2010:

Ruby Flipper dancing to the Beatles’ Back in the USSR: their first of two appearances on Top of the Pops, 15 Juy 1976. Introduced by Panurus Biarmicus, with some shockingly bad puns on the theme of Russia.
