Ringo's remastered albums

"Goodnight Vienna" - due out in remastered form in January, alongside "Ringo".
We've already mentioned this, but here's the official confirmation. The good news is that these two albums have been remastered for the new vinyl releases.


‘Ringo’ and ‘Goodnight Vienna’ Available January 19

Los Angeles – December 11, 2017 – Two essential Ringo Starr albums, 1973’s Ringo and 1974’s Goodnight Vienna, have been remastered by Ron McMaster (that's his real name, folks!) at Capitol Mastering for worldwide reissue on heavyweight, 180-gram vinyl LPs. Both albums are available now for preorder and will be released by Capitol/UMe on January 19, 2018.

Preorder Ringo:
Preorder Goodnight Vienna:

In 1973, Ringo released his self-titled Ringo, which yielded three Top 5 Billboard Pop singles, including the No. 1 hits “Photograph” and “You’re Sixteen (You’re Beautiful And You’re Mine),” and the No. 5 hit “Oh My My.” Platinum-certified in the U.S., the Ringo album peaked at No. 1 in Canada, at No. 2 in the U.S., and at No. 7 in the UK. All of Ringo’s Beatles bandmates joined him to participate in the album; Richard Perry produced and its notable guest players also include Billy Preston on organ, Harry Nilsson background vocals, Klaus Voormann on bass and sax, and Robbie Robertson on guitar.

Ringo released his fourth solo album, Goodnight Vienna in 1974, racking up more hits, including the Top 5 Billboard Pop singles “Snookeroo,” written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, and “No No Song.” The album also features Ringo’s cover of the Platters’ “Only You,” which peaked at No. 6 on the Pop chart, and the title track, written by John Lennon. Perry, Preston, Voormann, Nilsson, and Robertson once again joined Ringo to collaborate in the studio, among others.

Finally out on vinyl: Ringo's Christmas album.

For the holiday season, Ringo’s beloved 1999 Christmas album I Wanna Be Santa Claus has been released on vinyl for the first time ever.

Ringo's latest album is available on CD and vinyl, as well as downloads and streaming.

In September this year, Ringo released his 19th solo album, Give More Love, before he hit the road again in October and November with his All Starrs. Ringo Starr and His All Starrs have confirmed several European tour dates for June and July 2018. Visit for more information.

Hi friend,
first: thanks for the amazing blog!
Well, I found these wonderful gem on SoulSeek:

The Beatles Lost Album - 2017 -
320 kbps - Bootleg - NOT FOR SALE!
Amazing rare and ultra rare unreleased Beatles songs.
this is the best Beatles Bootleg so far, on best quality.
The album had a great production and sounds like a George Martin/Jeff Lynne's production (as in the sensitivity to choose tracklist order, fix tracks, clean up, tracks transitions, cover art, etc.).
The collection is incredibly complete of unreleased Beatles tracks (only few songs were left out: some covers/blues/jam with low quality-performance production).
In short: unlike most bootlegs that are just a put together rarities, this album is very well-architected in its concept and you feel the pleasure of listening to a "lost classic Beatles album".Highly recommended! Enjoy :)

So I put the album in We Transfer, you just click the link to download it:

(the link is available for 7 days)

Cheers and congratulations for the wonderfull blog :)
Happy Xmas!
