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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent All-Starr Anthology July 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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 ›

4.0 out of 5 stars What's my Name? RINGO!! August 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Listening & Historical Too! August 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 48 Live Greatest Hits! April 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is not simply Ringo Starr's greatest hits, but a huge assembling of some of Rock's most enduring stars. Ringo has packed top notch band leaders into concert performances that bring back fantastic memories. Highlights include Peter Frampton performing his famous 'live' "Show Me The Way" and "Baby I Love Your Way", Jack Bruce singing the classics, "Sunshine Of Your Love" and "I Feel Free" from Cream and Joe Walsh with "Life In The Fast Land" and "Desperado". This is just a sampling of great tight live performances that Ringo surrounds himself with. He doesn't forget all the classic Beatles hits that he sang, including "Yellow Submarine", It Don't Come Easy", his own "Photograph" and the incredible "With A Little Help From My Friends" as a closer!
With most of these acts unable to draw enough fans for a tour this late in their game, Ringo pulls them altogether for one big race down memory lane and the band members couldn't be tighter. This was a great idea and from the remarks made by the stars and the roar of the enthusiastic audience, you know a good time was had by all!

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPRISINGLY OUTSTANDING July 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I just got this CD today and all I can say is leave it up to Ringo Starr to get a little help from his friends. From Billy Preston of the 'Get Back' sessions, to Mark Farner of Grand Funk, Randy Bachman of BTO and his old friend Burton Cummings of the Guess Who it seems to be a various artist collection. However, Ringo provides us with some of his biggest hits from his solo career along with the old favorite Beatle tunes he sang. A few songs left off of the album of importance is 'Oh My My' and 'La De Da'. There are a few more off of the Ringo album he should have put on there. However, the fun is on this album and you can tell that a splendid time was guaranteed for all.
