|Comments:||Ringo's 30th official release - and 8th All-Starr album.
Recorded live on 16th July 2006 at Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, Connecticut.
In 1989 Ringo first put together a band comprising well-known musicians that he called the "All-Starr Band" and hit the road.
As with every outing the highlights were the two and a half hour hits filled extravaganza performed by amazing musicians uniquely collaborating on their greatest material.
Opening with Ringo's solo smash It Don't Come Easy this rendition was anchored by Sheila E.'s drumming, Billy's guitar and Edgar Winter's sax. What makes this ensemble so powerful is the mutual respect and admiration the All Starrs have for one another and the connection the collaborative effort makes with the audience.
Other highlights include Sheila E in support of Edgar Winter on Frankenstein, Richard Marx and Billy Squier double teaming guitars on each others solo hits Don't Mean Nothing and Everybody Wants You. Edgar's support during Rod's Hold Your Head Up, Hamish's solid bass on Sheila E's A Love Bizarre and everyone contributing to a stellar four-part harmony on Ringo's classic Photograph and the only song credited to Lennon/McCartney/Starkey What Goes On. It all culminates with the iconic With A Little Help From My Friends which has become an apt anthem.
This particular All-Starr tour was also notable for the split with long-time collaborator Mark Hudson, who declined to participate this time around.
The headlines said it all: "Peace and Love: It's written in the All Starrs", and, "Two Hours of Pure Joy".
