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 Another Gem From Ringo July 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars With gusto, boys! July 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars RINGO: "Ringo! Give us a beat, Jimmy!" February 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"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.

This album starts off like a bonafide classic with Goodnight Vienna, Accapella (great song! ) and Ooh-Wee. Unfortunately, it doesn't maintain that level, including the clunkers Husbands and Wives and Call Me. Husbands and Wives is a touching Roger Miller song, but Ringo's pipes just can't pull it off. Call Me may be the worst song he's ever written, and he's written some pretty wretched ones. Also, Nilsson's Easy For Me is ill-suited for Ringo's voice. But there are seven really strong songs on this album, and the Richard Perry production is better than on "Ringo." Plus, there's the great bonus tracks, which make this a winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! March 4, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Pay no attention to the London listener's review below mine. No, this CD is not the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" or "Abbey Road." But, Yes! - It is an excellent CD filled with great Ringo moments, fun & toe-tapping songs and some of the best pop music in the history of recorded music. If you love Ringo, you should already have this CD (although I would suggest the US release, and NOT the expensive import). If you don't already have this album, then what are waiting for?

3.0 out of 5 stars I've embraced this album better than most people, I think November 19, 2010
By Rykre
Format:Audio CD
Although his 1973 album "Ringo" was his biggest solo success, I think Goodnight Vienna harbored some great songs. Sure, you have the hits "No No Song", and "Only You", but a few of his other non-hits on this album are actually more catchy than most of the non-hits on the "Ringo" album. Plus, as one of the few bonus tracks here, you get his higher charting hit "Back Off Boogaloo" which is not so bad.

I like shuffling all my Beatle solo songs together in my carousel player, because that way I get the feel of listening to The Beatles as if they were all still together. It's pretty cool to watch Ringo performing today with his all-star band. I'm happy to see that Ringo Starr is still going strong even today.
