5.0 out of 5 stars Time to Give the Fourth Beatle is Long Overdue Due, 21 Mar 2008
This review is from: Photograph: The Very Best Of Ringo Starr (Audio CD)
Ringo is the greatest understatement drummer in Rock (please don't label him "pop"). All through the Beatles tracks you hear his soft, complex, understated drumming. OK, you did not appreciate he could sing. Maybe you loved Paul or George or John. Maybe you believed the tripe that John derided his skill as a drummer or maybe you thought he was a "passenger" in the Beatles; if so listen to this and also read who is on the tracks. George and John are here in spades, others too. They played on his albums, George produced them and he played on theirs,. (NB George, whose greatest other band is the Travelling Wilburys - George, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, if you don't know check them out - also did some stuff with Ringo and Tom Petty which you will find on a Tom Petty DVD). But best here is Ringo himself. Actually, you KNOW these songs, they are in your head, you have heard them over and over...you just did not know they were Ringo Starr solo songs. My favourite is "Back off Boogaloo, written to honour his friend the great Marc Bolan.

Go on. Admit it. His Knighthood is long overdue. Write the UK Prime Minister today. Sir Ringo arise.
