Brand new studio album from legendary artist Ringo Starr. Liverpool 8 features 12 new tracks written and produced by Ringo Starr and Dave Stewart.
Who but Ringo Starr could get away with a syrupy lyric like this: "When I look back / It sure was cool / For those four boys from Liverpool?" The wrap-up line is from "Liverpool 8," the title song from the drummers autobiographical 14th album: of Rory Storm, of Hamburg, and of John, Paul, and George. Like most Ringo efforts, it wont win any songwriting accolades, but it can be just plain fun. Teaming with longtime collaborator Mark Hudson and producer Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), Starr belies his 67 years with still-solid drumming and an adolescence not far removed from "Octopuss Garden." Emphasis here should be placed on the barroom request "Harrys Song," as well as the seductively Spanish "Pasodobles" and a campy, banjo-led "RU Ready." With its infectious chorus--"Someones there to catch you when youre ready to let go"--the latter could be a holdover from the Beatles White Album and confirms that, be it 1968 or 2008, when you ask for Ringo, its Ringo you get. --Scott Holter

|any "extra tracks" anywhere?||
I don't believe so. Even the single has another album track as the b-side.
If there are any at all then they'll be on the super-duper 3-disc edition with limited edition liner notes by god.

You gotta hate that, when an album is released and then after the initial burst of sales they release a "Deluxe edition" to entice those on the edge of purchase.
I'm waiting to see if they do just that with this release.

|I was wondering if the Home Depot "theme song" had lyrics...||
I always thought the music Home Depot used on their commercials sounded like Springsteen's "Counting on a Miracle".
