Starr’s first-ever career-spanning hits collection presents his best solo tracks in CD, collector’s edition CD/DVD and digital packages

CD and digial album tracklist includes seven top 10 pop singles; collector’s edition DVD adds seven previously unreleased promotional film and video clips

Hollywood, California – June 18, 2007 – 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 catalogue 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 catalogue will be available in digital form for the first time on a global basis. Fans will be able to purchase Starr’s EMI catalogue 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.
