Recently I picked up a CD of the "Ringo" album. It was remastered in 1990, and I'm thinking it's the most recent CD of this.
What a fun album this was. At the time of release (autumn 1973) NOBODY expected Ringo to come out with such a great album with three hit singles. The formula they used to create this was a good one. Get Ringo together with lots of his friends and ex-Beatlemates and make it a party of sorts. I never desired to hear a full album of songs sung by Ringo, but he did a great job on this.
I have no desire to get other Ringo albums, but this one is special.
Absolutely! It's almost a Beatles album. In fact, how often were The Beatles all together in one studio at a time on Abbey Road and the White Album. Same thing with RINGO. They're all there. Just for some reason, Ringo was the lead singer on all the songs. Great record, great package. (I mean my vinyl copy)
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run. Me: It's not a Beatles song. Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right? Me: Yes. Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
I have the origanal Vinyl L.P. A superb booklet . The only other Ringo album I have is Goodnight Vienna , which I bought on the strength of him on Top Of The Pops singing Only You . Which I bought as well , pic sleeve , very nice .
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
