VH1 Storytellers CD

 

Initial UK Release Date 19 October 1998
Initial UK Catalogue Number Mercury 538 118-2
Weeks On UK Chart (to date) Failed To Chart
Peak UK Chart Position

 

Recorded and released for VH1’s Storytellers series this live album, though in a similar format to the All-Starr releases, is credited to Ringo alone and was released in the UK and the US on 19 October 1998, failing to chart in both territories. It was released on Mercury under catalogue number 538 118-2 for the UK and 314 538 118-2 for the US.

The show was recorded on 13 May 1998 at the Sony Studios in New York where Ringo performed various songs from his Beatles and solo career, including four tracks from his soon to be released Vertical Man album, and tells anecdotes about the songs being performed.

For this appearance the All-Starr moniker was dropped and instead the band is called The Roundheads featuring, amongst others, Joe Walsh and Simon Kirke.

I have 2 slightly different US releases shown below.

Original US 1998 Release (Promo)

The pictures below are of my original 1998 US promotional copy. You’ll see that the cover is stamped For Promotional Use Only. The case (usual slight storage marks) and disc are in excellent condition as is the included 8 page insert.

Estimated Value : £5 – £10

 

Original US 1998 Release

The pictures below are of my original 1998 US copy. It differs slightly from the copy above in that the barcode on the rear is white instead of yellow and has some added wording plus the CD itself has some extra wording at around 4 o’clock. The case (usual slight storage marks) and disc are in excellent condition as is the included 8 page insert.

Estimated Value : £5
