RINGO, the Fab Four skin-pounder's third solo album, is widely regarded as his finest, due to the happy synchronicity of good songs, good production, and a first-class batch of musicians all coming together in a thoughtful but organic manner. For one thing, George Harrison and "fifth Beatle" Billy Preston are all over this album, as are superdrummer Jim Keltner (Ringo's not too egotistical to share the drum throne) and most of The Band.
Ringo also gets considerable compositional assists from his old mates; Harrison co-wrote the impossibly infectious (and somewhat Badfinger-esque) "Photograph," among others, and Lennon contributes the album's opener, the brash, ironic "I'm the Greatest." Ringo's personable, unassuming vocal style makes a perfect match for Randy Newman's early classic "Have You Seen My Baby." Aided by the popwise but Ringo-friendly production of Richard Perry, our boy makes a convincing case for his way with '50s-style material on "You're Sixteen." "You're Sixteen," "Oh My My," and "Photograph" were all Top 10 hits, which made RINGO the commercial apex of the drummer's solo career.
Artist Overview
Though Ringo Starr is known to history as the man who drummed (and occasionally sang) with the Beatles, his story doesn't stop with the end of the Fab Four. Starr's natural charisma, humor, and distinctive Liverpudlian voice made him a natural for both films (THE MAGIC CHRISTIAN) and voiceovers (THE POINT, THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE). He scored a number of hits with his early solo albums, initially making him the most successful of the solo Beatles. In the 1990s, he started touring with an ever-changing roster of All-Starr bands featuring former members of other famous groups, from Men at Work and Cream to Procol Harum and the Rascals.
