Great memories of 1974,
This review is from: Ringo (Audio CD)
This really is a terrific CD, but I am biased because I have owned it as a cassette, which we played on our honeymoon, an LP [with terrific artwork which you can really only appreciate in the LP format] and now as a CD.
The bonus tracks are at least as good a reason for purchase as Ringo's versions of Randy Newman's "Have You Seen My Baby?" "Photograph" "Six O'Clock" and the knock out version of "You're Sixteen."
It is also worth it to hear one of the last recordings of 3 of The Beatles working together in John Lennon's song "I Am the Greatest," in which Lennon and Harrison make contributions.
I love Ringo's funny song "Early 1970" in which he laughs at his musical ability [says he can only play piano in the key of C and guitar in the key of E] and John and Yoko's habit of lying in bed watching Cookie Monster on Sesame Street [which John also refers to in his song "Hold On."]
And you get "It Don't Come Easy" and one or two others.
This recording contains some terrific musical arrangements and plenty of variety. It has been viewed by many as Ringo's best solo CD, which is kind of a shame as it was recorded in 1973!
