This is another great Offering from Ringo. The CD is even better than the LP because you get some great bonus tracks. First, you are treated to a John Lennon piece, "Goodnight Vienna." Sir Winston plays piano on this piece. The song is done with warmth and gusto. From this opening track you can immediately tell that Ringo is enjoying himself.
"Only You (And You Alone)" demonstrates Ringo's keen ability to make late 50's - early 60's rock classics quite memorable. Ringo's love for these vintage songs has not diminished. The story behind "Only You" is rather interesting. John Lennon recorded "Only you." Ringo loved John's rendition of it so much that he got John's recording and simply taped his voice over it. Beleive me, after hearing John's rendition of this vintage song, you can easily hear how Ringo followed the way John performed this song.
This LP also contains the cutsey "No No Song." I remember Ringo doing this live on the Smothers Brother's show. What more can be said about this classic?
I definitely recommend this CD. Great music and lotsa fun from Ringo. Where can you go wrong?

This was Ringo's fourth solo album. While not as good as his triumphant third album, it still has it's moments. It pretty much follows the "formula" of his third album, by including some songs Ringo wrote, some songs his friends wrote for him and some cover versions of other people's songs. The big hits were "No No Song" and "Only You". The CD version features three bonus tracks. "Back Off Boogaloo" was a Top Ten hit. The strange "Blindman" was the b-side of "Back Off Boogaloo" and was also the title song to a western Ringo starred in. "Six O'Clock" was originally featured on Ringo's third album. This is the extended version that previously only appeared on promo copies of the third album. It runs over a minute longer than the normal version and you can hear Paul McCartney's backing vocals more clearly on it. Recommended to Ringo's fans.

"I grew up with THE BEATLES." Those of you who did not, simply cannot--nor will you ever--understand all the magic, wonder and amazement that simple sentence implies. It was like hearing, watching, and feeling your heart come alive each time these four, magical musicians, took instruments in hand, and decided, "Okay, lads, let's make some music."

It was an oft' told tale that, during concert moments, when the audience frenzy had long since reached beyond "fever pitch," overwhelming their hopelessly inadequate amplifiers, John or Paul would howl quickly over their shoulders, "Ringo! Give us a beat, Jimmy" ("Jimmy" being a common Brit slang--sort of the equivalent of "Joe," "buddy," or "pal.") And somehow, miraculously--perhaps through sheer force of will--Mr. Richard S. would dig deep and hammer that beat home! Technology be damned! Crowds be damned! Endurance be damned! PHYSICS be damned! John's foot would begin to confidently tap, Paul's torso would bounce. And George? George would slyly smile for his old friend, Ringo the Rock, had once again brought the boys safely back into port.

Ringo: the glue, the anchor, the rock, the lighthouse beam.

Yet Ringo has often taken a back seat to his mates. And with a bemused smile, he has frequently let this impression or assessment of his talents and/or contributions stand unchallenged. Why not? If you were one of the four Titans who straddled the Earth, would you bother yourself with the mumbled stupidity of the occasional ant that crossed your path? Life is far too short, my friends.

It's a little known fact that, after The Beatles parted, Ringo went along quietly and consistently out-selling his brothers with his solo albums for any number number of years. That's right: Ringo.

Format: Audio CD
Although not quite as strong as Ringo, "Goodnight Vienna" is a good, if not quite-as-strong follow up using the same formula. The missing piece that would have made this puzzle of an album complete are George Harrison who was essential to the success of "Ringo" having written or co-written three songs (including "Photograph" with Ringo) and Paul McCartney. McCartney does appear on the CD courtesy of the longer cassette mix of "Six O'Clock" which is superior to the version on the original album. Harrison was essential to that album and is missed big time here (this is during a period when he and Ringo had a falling out, as I recall, because Harrison confessed that he slept with Ringo's wife Maureen and claimed to be in love with her).

Still, "Goodnight Vienna" does benefit from duplicating the format of Ringo--gathering famous friends to support Ringo. Hoyt Axton contributes the hilarious and rather ironic "No No Song", Nilsson's "Easy For Me","Occapella" by Allen Toussaint and John Lennon contributing the title track (and he also provided the guide vocal and played on "Only You" as is evidenced from the outtake on the Anthologyset).

Produced again by Richard Perry the CD mastering sounds pretty good--missing is the overuse of digital noise reduction that marred the U.S. release of "Ringo".

We get the 1972 single "Back Off Boogaloo" (which does feature George's mean slide playing and is produced by him but was recorded before the album), "Blindman" it's b-side as well as the longer version of "Six O'Clock" making this worthwhile to pick up for fans. All three songs only add value to the release.

Recommended.
