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

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

Monday June 18, 2007

Source: Capitol/EMI

http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/070618/lam062.html?.v=96

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."

It's truly great that we are getting an updated Greatest Hits collection... Such albums are really helpful, especially for casual listeners. Perhaps for us fans they won't be such a novelty.

Although it would bring some food for thought: there's nothing there from Ringo the 4th ("Drowning in the Sea of Love" or "Simple Love Song" could've been there IMHO), Bad Boy ("Who Needs a Heart" is a great tune) or Old Wave (nothing there that I would include in a "best of" compilation).

And one would think that they would include the videos from The Cooler and the "Weight of the World" and "Wrack My Brain" (extremely funny) promos in the DVD.

Thoughts?

I wasn't planning on buying this, but the promo video DVD is enticing...

I wish they'd included "Just a Dream," which isn't a greatest hit by any means but it's never been released on CD.

Hopefully reissues of Stop and Smell the Roses and Old Wave are on the way...

Here's another little snip...

From NME news:

Ringo Starr's solo recordings will be made available for digital download for the first time this summer.

The former Beatle has signed an agreement with Capitol/EMI that will allow the label to release his back catalog digitally beginning on August 28.

He has also entered into an agreement with his long-time record label to release and market his future solo recordings.

Also on August 28, a new 'best of' collection will be made available digitally and as a collector's edition CD/DVD. The career-spanning collection is entitled 'Photograph: The Very Best of Ringo Starr' and features 20 tracks.

The collector's edition includes several bonus features, including previously unreleased film clips of the legendary drummer, and the video for 'Act Naturally'.

Anyone know where the GH CD/DVD package is available to pre-order on the web (perferably in a UK online store)?

Finally found this for pre-order with a better copy of the cover.

Note: This is only the standard CD and not the Special Edition with the DVD:

Seems like you're the only one who isn't happy with this (or any) new release

There is enough great stuff on the DVD that makes this release worthwhile. And there is the hard to get Act Naturally (with Buck Owens) (1989)
also.
