Liner Notes

Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev's late 80's glasnost policy encouraged freedom of expression and relaxed the suppression of media. This allowed for two things: Public dissent against the soviet state and a Billy Joel pit-stop on his world tour supporting The Bridge. Joel was the first American pop star to tour Russia with a full stage show, and this recording presents his first press conference after it was announced.
