Ringo Starr’s eighteenth album arrives just in time for his solo induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Guest musicians include members of Starr’s most recent All-Starr Band, all of whom co-wrote one track with Starr: Todd Rundgren, Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie, Richard Page, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette. Rundgren also collaborated on the album’s title song. Guest appearances are also promised from Joe Walsh, Richard Marx, Peter Frampton and Dave Stewart.
This 3 CD/1 DVD box set promises to be “the most comprehensive compilation yet of the group’s recordings,” including original album tracks, demos, alternate takes, previously unreleased live recordings and, for the first time, the official release of the seven existing tracks which Fotheringay recorded in session for BBC radio. The final disc, a DVD, has the four songs recorded by the group for German TV show Beat Club, effectively doubling the existing footage of Sandy Denny in performance. Two of these songs, “Nothing More” and “John the Gun,” weren’t even broadcast originally. This hardcover book-style box also features rare and previously unseen photographs of the band plus previously unseen original sketches by Marion Appleton, Trevor Lucas’s sister.
Ron Pember and Denis De Marne’s 1974 musical Jack the Ripper promised “scenes of fun, terror, song and dance” as it retold the story of the infamous murders in a music-hall style.
