Biography

Ringo Starr, born Richard Starkey, was the drummer in the Beatles from 1962 to 1970 and thus became one of the most famous musicians of the '60s. Though the least prominent member of the quartet, he distinguished himself as an occasional singer of good-natured material and as an actor. Upon the group's split, Starr went solo with two novelty projects: the first, an album called ... Read more in Amazon's Ringo Starr Store

The 3 CD set The Anthology...So Far by Ringo Starr and the All-Starrs is an excellent compendium of the six All-Starr Band Tours. The set consists of 47 live selections from the twelve year span of the All-Starr Tours which began in 1989 and continued through 2000.Currently, Ringo Starr is rehearsing for the seventh All-Starr Tour with a new line-up.The All-Starr concept of bringing musical legends together into a group to tour around the world is a unique and novel one. There is at present a spin-off of the All-Starr concept called A Tribute to Abbey Road which consists of an all-star musical ensemble performing Beatles songs headed by All-Starr alumnus Todd Rundgren.The All-Starr concept is a perfect showcase for Ringo Starr. The songs are chronologically sequenced beginning with the first All-Starr Tour in 1989. The song selections consist of Beatles numbers on which Ringo Starr sang lead vocal, his solo hits, and selections by the All-Starr performers. From his solo career, "It Don't Come Easy", "Photograph", "I'm the Greatest", "Don't Go Where the Road Don't Go","Back Off Boogaloo", and "You're Sixteen", are musical highlights. From the Beatles period, the songs included are "Yellow Submarine", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "Boys", "Honey Don't","Act Naturally",and the anthem and signature song, "With a Little Help From My Friends" from the 1967 Sgt. Pepper album. John Lennon once referred to Ringo Starr as the "heart of the Beatles". The positive,self-deprecating, good natured mood of the songs shows why. The All-Starrs who accompany Ringo Starr in the ensemble consist of Billy Preston, Dr.Read more ›

This 3 CD set does an admirable job capturing the spirit of Ringo's live sets with his various All Star bands over past summers. I've seen a lot of concerts in my life and one of the most special was singing along with Ringo and the entire audience to Yellow Submarine. The live version of that song reflects the love Ringo's audience has for the man and his effervescent personality. My only criticism of the CD is in the mixing. Transitions from song to song are rough. I suppose the reason is that the material spans lots of concerts over several years yet technology has advanced to the point where that could have been done seamlessly. Still, I love to put the CD in the changer and sing along with all the rock stars that play with Ringo. He has aged gracefully and has lots of fun with his fans. This CD shows just how much fun!

I highly recommend you purchase this CD & the accompanying DVD. Great songs, (all of which you will know) played by musicians who obivously checked the own indivdual egos at the door. My only complaint about the CD (and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) is first, the engineering & mixing of these songs. In some cases the volume level of these songs are so low, you really need to crank your stereo to hear properly. Then the next song will come on, and your speakers just shake your room because of the volume levels being set to high. Secondly, in some cases the vocals are lost behind the instruments. Lastly (and this is just my own personal opinion) the CD was great listening too, until the end of disc 3. I never was a fan of Eric Carmen, and his 2 songs at the end of the CD just ruin a fun filled CD. His songs just bring the CD to a screeching halt. I would have loved to hear Joe Walsh's Rocky Mountain Way, or additional songs from Billy Preston and/or Burton Cummings, who only received 1 song from each. Other than that, I still highly recommend buying this CD. It's not only great listening, but it's historical too!

Ringo Starr became a smart business man during the mid eighties. He was putting out numerous sub par records and his star certainly wasn't what it was during the Fab Four era or even during the early part of his career. He toured with numerous big names since 1988 and has somewhat revitalized his career.
Over the course of this three CD Anthology set there are many highlights but certainly some trying moments. The first disc is probably the strongest featuring a charming arrangment of the No No Song with excellent saxaphone and keyboard solos. Dr John's Iko Iko is another gem as is Clarence Cleamons Quarter To Three. Probably the glaring misfire is Joe Walsh's atrocious vocals on Life In The Fast Lane and Desperado. Gosh it sounds like old Joe had a little too much to drink before stepping up to the microphone on those numbers. All he does is shout the lyrics. Well at least his guitar solos are still crisp.
The second CD is kind of a hit and miss affair. Like I'm The Greatest and Timothy B Schmidt's pretty I Can't Tell You Why. Felix Cavaliere's two songs are done fabulously. Maybe the best performance on the entire set. Randy Bachman's Takin' Care of Business works well as the band members all solo delightfully. Awesome keyboard playing and riveting bass. However Bachman's other tune You Aint Seen Nothing Yet has always strayed on my last nerve. The sound is way too redundant and the live setting does not improve the impression. Also Joe Walsh absolutely ruins In The City with his howling. Gosh he would have gotten booed out of a Karaoke Bar with that performance. Same with Todd Rungren's two songs. Nothing but annoying screams and yelps. Here Fido go fetch the bone.
Disc Three rates better than two but a little short of one.
