Ringo Starr And Friends CD

 

Initial UK Release Date 15 August 2006
Initial UK Catalogue Number Disky GO 904143
Weeks On UK Chart (to date) Failed To Chart
Peak UK Chart Position

 

This album, although being an All Starr recording, was released in the UK/Europe on 15 August 2006 under Ringo’s name only and failed to chart. There was no US release. It is on the Disky label under catalogue number GO 904143.

The 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 seven tracks from Ringo and seven from his band  members.

The album is basically a re release of the In Concert album of the previous year. All fourteen tracks had also previously been available on the Ringo And His New All Starr Band album that had been released in the US four years earlier. Strangely that US release had contained sixteen tracks but for this release The No No Song and Back Off Boogaloo have been excluded!

Another thing to note is that another US release –  Extended Versions – The Encore Collection – released three years previously contained five tracks from this album then another five, previously unreleased, taken from the same concert.

I do not yet own a copy of this release
