As we've posted here on the Beatles News Blog previously, Capitol Records is currently reissuing a lot of their classic albums. Two more Beatle related albums are going to be released shortly.
Ringo - Ringo Starr (Apple Records) - This has to be one of the greatest Beatle solo albums released next to Imagine, Band on The Run, and All Things Must Pass. This album had many hits for Ringo including Photograph, You're 16, and Oh My My. This album also included the closest thing to a Beatle reunion till Anthology was released. On the song I'm The Greatest written by John Lennon, and performed by Ringo Starr, John Lennon, and George Harrison with Klaus Voorman on Bass. This album certainly deserves a nice reissue on vinyl for 2009.
Sentimental Journey - Ringo Starr (Apple Records) - This is one of the first big band type covers album performed by a Pop Rock artist. Many artists like Natalie Cole have had much success with this formula. Ringo was kinda groundbreaking with this release produced by Quincy Jones, Barry Gibb, and Paul McCartney.
Thanks to our pal Dean Wien who noticed that both releases are listed at www.cduniverse.com as available now for preorder, but release date "not determined". From their home page, search for artist "Ringo Starr" and then look under vinyl releases and then click on "Vinyl LP".
