I am in the undoubted but I would say privileged minority of people who do NOT have a favourite Beatle. And although I would concede if pressed that Ringo was somewhat inferior as a songwriter compared to the other three, there is something about Ringo's contributions to The Beatles and also a quality found on many of his solo albums that is very hard to define.
It is not Pavarottiesque singing. We know that. That never stopped Dylan. It is not prolific songwriting. His best songs were probably more than a little helped by George Harrison (Photograph, Octupus's Garden, It Don't Come Easy'). But people like me don't enjoy Ringo's music because they are expecting 'Hey Jude' level songwriting. We enyoy it for the spirit which is in most of Ringo's music. It's normally upbeat, optimistic and strangely uplifting. Even when Ringo sings of a triple murder as he does on 'Love Don't Last Long' on this album, his delivery is touching and charming to the point where we end up singing along with those morbid lyrics. Whereas if Leonard Cohen had sung it we'd be half way out of the window within seconds probably. Let me put it in as simple language as I can. When a Beatles fan is depressed he does NOT reach for Lennon's first solo album 'Plastic Ono Band', least of all the track 'Working Class Hero', he does NOT reach for George's Material World with its preachy religious lyrics (music is brilliant of course but that's another review!). The toss up is probably between Paul and Ringo and I would say Ringo would win in my home on about 50% of occasions. If not more. Because as I said earlier Ringo's records generally generate warmth, good humour and a wonderful sort of confidence of someone who knows he's not the world's greatest singer but has this unique ability to bring a smile to your face!

Many years ago, as a teenager, I loved the simple harmonies and infectious style of the Beatles early work. When I went to University I suddenly found I loved their experimental and avant-garde later work, which I had previously hated. Then I started to appreciate more and more their solo work. However, when I first heard this, about 10 years ago I hated it. Now, listening to it again for the first time in years and having discovered Hank Williams and Bob Wills in the meantime, I find that my tastes have changed again, and I now find much to enjoy in this album. Who knows, maybe when I reach my mid sixties I might find I suddenly like McCartney's recent work?

I guess what came as a shock to me when I first heard it was that it is a pure country album, all twangy guitars and harmonicas. I just wasn't able to accept such music from a British icon back then. Secondly is the tone of the album. It's mournful, bluesy and at times pretty depressing. At the age I was back then it didn't fit with my outlook on life, so was not of interest. Now the more mature me sees a lot of merit in this music. Thirdly it was the shock of hearing Ringo's voice. Not the most perfect of instruments, I didn't like the slightly off key delivery and odd phrasings. But since then I have discovered Bob Dylan, and started to pay more attention to the feeling and meaning rather than the tunefulness of the voice. All of a sudden this album has a lot to say to me, and I can appreciate the way in which it says it.

These days I would make the following assessment of the album - A set of country ballads in the style of Hank Williams, but not so cheerful. Ringo's voice is surprisingly well suited to the genre, with a slow and growly delivery that accentuates the emotion in the songs.

I was not that interested in getting this album, as could not picture Ringo as a Country singer, and to be honest, that style of music has never really interested me!

But, Ringo manages to pull off the best of Country and Rock n' roll, as this about sounds great!

Some really good songs on it and is fun to listen to from start to finish... it has a feel of "I am not out to record the greatest album ever, but can atleast have some fun" and the end product is this nice hidden gem of an album.
