Ringo Starr will release his solo efforts digitally and made his best hits available in CD format.
If Paul McCartney has had his sparkle this year, his ex-band mate in The Beatles Ringo Starr would also like his. The 66 years old singer sealed a deal with Capitol/EMI to release his catalogue online.
His classics from albums "Beacoups of Blues" (1970) and "Ringo" (1973) will be made available for downloading starting from August 28. Also available online is "Photograph: The Very Best of Ringo Starr", a compilation containing his best hits like "It Don't Come Easy" and "Sentimental Journey". The album will also be released in a CD format and CD/DVD package featuring a film and video clips bonuses.
Six of his songs will also be made ring tones and released digitally.
Starr's solo album titled "Liverpool 8" is tentatively released in January 2008.
