Ex-BEATLE RINGO STARR has signed a deal to release his CAPITOL/EMI catalog online, his publicist said. Downloads of his 1970 album "Beaucoups Of Blues" and 1973's "Ringo" will be available AUGUST 28, along with a compilation album, "Photograph: The Very Best of RINGO STARR." The best-of collection, with tracks like "It Don't Come Easy" and "Sentimental Journey," will also be released on CD and as a collector's edition CD/DVD package featuring a film and video clips.
Six RINGO ringtones will also be offered. THE BEATLES catalog remains unavailable for downloading, though EMI has said it is working on a deal to put the songs online.
