The new album, Ringo Starr: The Lifetime of Peace & Love Tribute Concert.

The music of Ringo Starr was celebrated on January 20th, 2014 at a tribute concert in Los Angeles, an event that also saw the Beatles drummer honoured with the Lifetime Of Peace & Love Award on behalf of the David Lynch Foundation. Recordings from the evening's concert will now be made available on a ten track album on December 4 via Communion Records, and the sales will benefit The David Lynch Foundation. The record has been mixed by Bob Clearmountain. On the ten tracks from that evening's concert, the performers were backed by a house band comprised of Don Was, Peter Frampton, Kenny Aranoff, Steve Lukather and Benmont Tench. Among the participating artists, tracks have been selected from The Head and the Heart ("Octopus’s Garden"), Brendan Benson ("Don’t Go Where the Road Don’t Go"), Joe Walsh ("Back Off Boogaloo"),  Ben Harper ("Walk With You") and Ben Folds ("Oh My My").

It's too bad they wouldn't release the full concert on Blu-ray and DVD.
