Biography

Ringo Starr, born Richard Starkey, was the drummer in the Beatles from 1962 to 1970 and thus became one of the most famous musicians of the '60s. Though the least prominent member of the quartet, he distinguished himself as an occasional singer of good-natured material and as an actor. Upon the group's split, Starr went solo with two novelty projects: the first, an album called ... Read more in Amazon's Ringo Starr Store

Ringo's solo albums were the last out of the Beatles I was able to get in to, and I started off with his better known albums (Ringo, Goodnight Vienna), and a lot of people had nothing good to say about "Ringo the 4th", but to be honest, I liked it!!

Its nowhere near the same stature as his earlier 70's albums, but there are a few good songs on it, "Wings" being a great example!

This album is pretty hard to come by and is not worth sweating over to get, but once you get it, it does grow on you a bit.

At the time this was probably among the hardest Ringo album to defend to the objective listener. Whoever he is. But I am assuming that you would not be reading this had you not fallen victim to a least of a bout of that wonderful disease called Subjectivity.
Ringo's albums of from least the 1970s have a special charm, especially in the late 70s when they were so profoundly untrendy. Not likely to ingratiate oneself with the In Crowd was the sentence: 'Have you heard the latest Ringo album, it's great.'
When most kids were listening to Stiff Little Fingers or The Buzzcocks, yours truly was discovering Ringo Starr albums. Don't Laugh. And I am happy to say that I return to this album quite often. For although it may not be Ringo's best album, it certainly has its moments. Even Ringo dismissed his work after 'Goodnight Vienna' as going downhill and the declining work of a disinterested alcoholic, but he is being pretty unfair. All three albums from this period: this one, the previous one 'Rotogravure' (1976) and the next one 'Bad Boy' (1978) all have several fine moments. Maybe not up there with the best two which are 'Beaucoups Of Blues' (1970) and 'Ringo' (1973), the sublime set of which very nearly, very nearly saw a Beatles reunion. No less.
This album has no other Ex Beatles contributing which is a little disappointing but there are references to his three brothers, most noteably on 'Out On The Streets' which has him meeting up with the Lennons at the Dakota. Or else out on the streets nearby. And one track is even called 'Wings'!
But enough of Beatles connections, to the songs. The opener 'Drowning In The Sea Of Love' is an OK disco number but better was to come. The second number 'Tango All Night' is quite poppy but basically unmemorable.

A criminally underbought immersion into funk, soul and disco, this slickly produced and thoroughly enjoyable album is a MUST!!! It staggers me to read that this album is regarded as the weakest of Ringo's late-70's trilogy as I have always considered it to be the stongest by a long way.
Choose your delights from Ringo's reworking of soul epic 'Drowning In The Sea Of Love', also the album's single, the glorious 'Wings' (one of his finest solo songs), the danceable 'Out In The Streets' and 'Can She Do It Like She Dances?', the majestic ballad 'Gave It All Up' and the Spanish guitar-driven 'Tango All Night'.
The musicianship of the session players and Ringo's powerful vocals are eminent throughout, the only downside being the ommission of gorgeous b-side 'Just A Dream' at the expense of the abominable 'Gypsies In Flight'.
However, even this can't tarnish what I believe to be one of Ringo's best efforts, worthy of a much better fate than it received. Peace And Love!
