Starr Struck: Best of Ringo Starr, Vol. 2 is Ringo Starr's second official compilation album, released on Rhino.

Content[edit]

The successor to 1975's Blast from Your Past,[6] it rounds up Starr's highlights from 1976's Ringo's Rotogravure to 1983's Old Wave and encompasses label stays with Polydor, Atlantic, Portrait, and RCA. Consequently, it saw the first release of four tracks from Old Wave which had not been issued in the U.S. up to that time.[7] The CD edition features four additional tracks that were not present on the vinyl edition: "Attention", "Who Needs a Heart", "Hopeless" and "You Belong to Me".[8] The cover photo was originally for the unreleased version of Stop and Smell the Roses (1981), entitled Can't Fight Lightning.[6]

Release[edit]

Issued on 24 February 1989 by Rhino, only in the US.[nb 1][7] Never charting anywhere, Starr Struck: Best of Ringo Starr, Vol. 2 went out of print during the 1990s.
