Ringo Starr's EMI Catalog Albums to Debut Digitally on August 28

Since he first began his career in the 1960s with The Beatles, Ringo Starr has been one of the world's brightest musical luminaries. On August 28, Starr's four EMI Music catalog albums, Sentimental Journey (1970), Beaucoups Of Blues (1970), the platinum-certified Ringo (1973) and gold-certified Goodnight Vienna (1974) will make their global digital release debuts across all of the world's major digital sales providers. On the same date, six Ringo Starr ringtones will also debut, and Capitol/EMI Music Catalog Marketing will release the first-ever career and label-spanning collection of Starr's best solo recordings, PHOTOGRAPH: The Very Best Of Ringo Starr.

Starr's EMI catalog will be available in digital form for the first time on a global basis. Fans will be able to purchase Starr's EMI catalog works from all of EMI's digital distribution partners, and the titles will also be part of EMI's premium download offering (free of digital rights management and in a higher-quality bit rate) from participating retailers.

To be released physically in CD and Collector's Edition CD/DVD packages and digitally, PHOTOGRAPH: The Very Best Of Ringo Starr presents 20 standout Starr tracks, including seven Top 10 Pop hits, released between 1970 and 2005 with Capitol, Atlantic, Mercury, Boardwalk, Private Music and Koch. The Collector's Edition adds seven never before released film and video clips on DVD, including original promotional films for "It Don't Come Easy," "Sentimental Journey," "Back Off Boogaloo," among others, and the music video for "Act Naturally" (with Buck Owens).

The world has known and loved Ringo Starr since he was a Beatle, and it is his unique talent and his love of creating and playing music that continues to captivate fans around the world, and which shines through in every one of his songs. "Ultimately, what's most impressive about Ringo Starr isn't what he's been, but rather who he is," said Rolling Stone magazine Contributing Editor David Wild. "The man's great heart and soul, his wit and wisdom." A liner notes essay by Wild is complemented by a selection of classic Starr photos in PHOTOGRAPH: The Very Best Of Ringo Starr's 12-page booklets. The CD will be released in a jewelcase, while the Collector's Edition will be presented in a deluxe fold-out digipak package.

PHOTOGRAPH: The Very Best Of Ringo Starr celebrates the legacy of this iconic and universally loved artist. Covering the full scope of Starr's solo career, the new collection's seven Top 10 Pop hits include "It Don't Come Easy," "Photograph," "Oh My My," "Snookeroo," "Back Off Boogaloo," "Only You (And You Alone)," and his playful and now tongue-in-cheek "No-No Song." Also included are "Act Naturally" (with Buck Owens), "You're Sixteen (You're Beautiful and You're Mine)," and the critically acclaimed "Weight of the World" and "Fading In and Fading Out."

That Liam Lynch is turning out to be the nth Beatle. First he gets all pally with Paul at LIPA, then gets in the top 10 with the shortest hit record ever, then turns his socks into a hit TV show, then gets to be friends with Dhani Harrison, then does a Foo Fighters vid, A Tenacious D movie and now Ringo has signed him to his record label after drumming on his album. What next? Will he end up marrying Heather Mills and becoming Beatrice's uncle Liam?

Which is all very well and I'm not envious. If he wants to go round sniffing The Beatles' underpants, that's fine with me.
But if he should walk up to me in the street when I'm out shopping for limescale remover and happen to casually ask me for a quid to finance his new MTV series, I should set down my shopping bags, step over to the other side of the street and shout 'Oi Lynch! Nooooooo!'

It's good that the promo films are included on the DVD as well. I have some piss poor copies of these already so at least I'll be able to see what I'm looking at!!!

Nice tracklist! I think Six O Clock, La De Da or Choose Love should've made the cut instead of something like Snookeroo, but it's a pretty nice list. Happy to see King of Broken Hearts get some love! Great song!
