This is Ringo’s fourth live album recorded with his All-Starr band and another that didn’t receive a UK release. It was released in the US on 6 August 2002 on the King Biscuit Flower Hour label under catalogue number 7930188003-2 and failed to chart.
This recording was made at the Rosemont Theater, Chicago on 22 August 2001. With Ringo on the night were Greg Lake, Ian Hunter, Roger Hodgson, Howard Jones, Sheila E and Mark Rivera.
During each All-Starr tour, Ringo will perform some of his Beatles/solo songs then whoever was making up the All-Starr band at the time would take a turn performing a few of the hits from their band/solo careers. On this recording we have nine tracks from Ringo and seven from his band members.
NB There was a Dutch CD release for this album on 3 October 2005 which would have been available for the European market. It was released under Ringo’s name, not the All Starr name, as “In Concert” and was on the Disky label under catalogue number SI 903345. This version contained only fourteen tracks as opposed to the original release’s sixteen tracks – The No No Song and Back Off Boogaloo being excluded. Disky then re released this fourteen track version on 19 September 2006 under catalogue number GO 904143 and with another new title – Ringo Starr And Friends.
Another thing to note is that 1 April 2003 saw the release of Extended Versions – The Encore Collection which contained five tracks from this album then another five, previously unreleased, taken from the same concert.
I have a copy of the US release shown below.
