Starr Struck : Best Of Ringo Starr Vol 2 CD

 

Initial UK Release Date No Official UK CD Release
Initial UK Catalogue Number
Weeks On UK Chart (to date) Failed To Chart
Peak UK Chart Position

 

This second “Best Of” from Ringo did not receive a UK release on either CD or vinyl and was, infact, released in the US only, on 24 February 1989, where it failed to chart.

It covers the period from 1976 (Ringo’s Rotogravure) to 1983 (Old Wave), featuring tracks from Old Wave that had never previously seen a US release. The CD version features four more tracks than the vinyl LP version.

The front cover features a picture of Ringo with what looks like electricity around his head. This picture was originally going to be used for the Stop And Smell The Roses album which was originally going to be called Can’t Fight Lightning!

My US CD is shown below. It is on the Rhino label under catalogue number R2 70135

US Release

The pictures below are of my US copy. The case (usual slight storage marks) and disc are in excellent condition as is the included 8 page fold out insert.

Estimated Value : £10 – £15
