Ringo Starr, Ringo (1973)
Sure, sure, you can say that if he wasn’t in The Beatles then Ringo Starr wouldn’t have had a solo career. But he was in The Beatles. And so he had a solo career – kinda. And still does – sorta. And even if you don’t like many of his albums this is certainly a good one. Great songs, and some great players involved, including, at various points, all his old bandmates. And a couple of big hits for Ringo here with Photograph and You’re Sixteen. Some top tunes here. I don’t have a whole lot of Ringo – solo album-wise – but this one is a goodie.
I picked this up only recently – a junk-shop find. But I had it on tape back in the day…
Sample Track: Have You Seen My Baby
