2.0 out of 5 stars Why Bother?, 30 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Ringo 2012 (MP3 Download)
First off let me say I am a lifelong Beatles fan and an admirer of (most of) Ringo's solo work. Having said that, sadly this is a really poor album and just a bit of a rip-off. Its a "why did he bother?" album. You have three covers from the Rock'n'roll era , Rock island line , Think it over and Slow Down (which the Beatles did so much better in 1965). Then there are two remakes of tracks from earlier albums. Neither "Wings" or "Step Lightly" is an improvement over the original versions. Finally you have four indifferent new tracks and a substandard album with a total playing time of 28 minutes for the 9 tracks! Disappointing is not the word- Ringo has made some great albums since the Beatles broke up. This is not one of them . Sorry .

Slow Down is an original composition by Ringo and Joe Walsh. I know The Beatles were great, but even they didn't have the ability to time travel and cover a song that wouldn't be released until 2012

What are the great albums that Ringo has released?

"Ringo" was an excellent LP IMO.

Am surprised that no one who has reviewed this(including me!) has mentioned the sample from "Glass Onion", at the start of the first track "Anthem". (The 2 drum beats after the marching feet) Is it just me who noticed it?

In reply to C. Morris "Beaucoups Of Blues" was a superb album. I think it is vastly underrated and would have been thought of a lot more highly if Ringo had released it later in his career.

I will reply to that too and say that 1992's Time Takes Time was one of Ringo's best works, great songs, great production.And yes, Beaucoups of Blues, I also consider really overlooked.
