VH1 Storytellers is a popular show that places performers in an intimate environment, where the artist concerned would also be expected to chat about most songs and give a brief interesting anecdote as well - hence the "blisters on my fingers".
According to Keith Badman's essential book After The Break-Up, after rehearsals on 12th May,
Ringo and his current band, dubbed "The Roundheads", recorded an edition of "VH1 Storytellers" live on 13th May 1998 at the Bottom Line Club, New York.
BUT, the C.D. itself says that it was recorded at the Sony Studios (are they the "Bottom Line" ?) ... and Keith only lists
half the tracks. Having not seen the show (I missed it ?!) ... I can`t confirm the continuity.
Sleeve art direction was by Margery Greenspan, design and layout was by Sandra Monteparo with the cover photograph by Marc Bryan-Brown.
