Truth be told, some of Ringo’s solo albums are pretty good – especially the self-titled ’73 “Ringo” and it’s follow-up, “Goodnight Vienna”, which I actually really rather like. And also some great singles, “It Don’t Come Easy” and “Back Off Boogaloo”, for instance.
Lately, I have been picking up his 90’s albums on CD, as they seem to have made it to the $3 bin. Some of them aren’t too bad. I really liked the ’07 “Very Best Of” CD + DVD set. The DVD was fantastic, it had stuff I’d never seen before! And the CD was most enjoyable – with stuff from an assortment of labels.
So, will he outlive Sir Paul? Will he ever become Sir Richard – or Sir Ringo? I have yet to try his new album “
So – thanks for the music, Sir Ringo!
