Lost Ringo Starr + George Harrison Track Discovered + Just Released

“Radhe Shaam,” a previously undiscovered track featuring Sir Ringo Starr and the late George Harrison, was found and is now set for release.

In 1968 the psychedelic pop song was penned and produced by legendary radio DJ and journalist Suresh Joshi featuring the former Beatles plating drums and guitar with Aashish Khan providing an Indian instrumental track.

While sorting through his Birmingham, UK loft during the Covid-19 lockdown Suresh stumbled upon the master tape and yesterday (11.10), it received its first play at the Liverpool Beatles Museum and on BBC Radio Merseyside.

The recording came about as the ‘Let it Be’ hitmakers – which also included Sir Paul McCartney and the late John Lennon – were working on ‘Hey Jude’ at Trident Studios in London but never got released at the time because the Fab Four split in 1970 was on the horizon.

About the song Suresh stated: “Time had gone on, [then] The Beatles were breaking up and had various problems so no-one wanted to [release the song].” “The song itself revolves around the concept that we are all one, and that the world is our oyster. “[That is] something that we have all realized during this pandemic.”

Paul Parry, manager of the Liverpool Beatles Museum, commented: “It was quite a moment. It took you somewhere else.” “It was unmistakeably George’s guitar [and] it was like almost bringing him back to life. It was unmistakeably Ringo’s drumming too.”

‘Radhe Shaam’ is expected to be formally released today (11.11.21).
