Finally a proper best of collection from Ringo. As always, I could argue about what was left off but why bother. No collection ever pleases everybody! The songs have obviously been remastered (the earlier ones anyway) as they sound incredible. My only real complaint is that the count in to both Oh My My and Snookeroo have been edited out. Why???
Both were released as singles with the count ins intact.

Now for the real treat-There is one really big PLUS to this collection. The single edit of It's All Down To Goodnight Vienna is making it's cd debut with Lennon's count in still there!!!!
Overall, a great single disc of some of Ringo's finest material.
Now, isn't it time for George to have an up to date "Best Of" as well?

As for the DVD, it's great to actually own the videos for It Don't Come Easy & Back Off Boogaloo. I never even knew that a promo video existed for Only You! The only disappointment is the video for You're Sixteen. It was put together using footage of Ringo & Carrie Fisher taken from Ringo's 1978 TV Special. They didn't even use the complete song. Hope the TV Special is released in it's entirety one day.

Proving that The Beatles' fame reached to all four corners of their post-break-up careers, it was lovable lug Ringo who became the most successful solo Beatle early in the game. His 1973 "Ringo" was the first ex-Beatle album to sell massively and had two number one singles, "Photograph" and the cover of "You're 16." His Beatle personality, that of the likeable, easygoing and cheerful everyman, and his light and fun pop made for great hits.

While the first two albums, "Beau-coups of Blues" and "Sentimental Journey," were exercises in style (and there is nothing here from "Journey"), it was the Richard Perry and Vini Pocia produced extravaganzas of "Ringo" and "Goodnight Vienna" that caught the public's fancy. Having all your famous friends and ex-bandmates added an air of spectacle. Elton John was at his 70's peak when he and Bernie Taupin donated "Snookeroo" and the excitement was contagious.

Unfortunately, the excitement was also substance fueled and began to take a toll. Ringo left longtime home Capitol and signed with Atlantic for "Ringo's Rotogravure," which was another star studded affair but lacked any power. "A Dose of Rock and Roll" and a cover of "Hey Baby" are here, but the following albums are completely passed over.

Ringo Starr possesses that rare talent for making excellent, poignant and timely music throughout a lifetime; although "celebrities" in music come and go Ringo's talent always made him a titan in the music industry. Ringo's fans can rejoice that this excellent CD/DVD package has finally been released. And what a package it is! We get twenty songs and a bonus DVD with several videos some of which appear more professionally made than others. Nevertheless, it's all five star quality!!!

The CD starts with Ringo's earlier hits; we get the stunning "Photograph" by Ringo and George Harrison; the guitars work wonders for this arrangement and Ringo sings beautifully with a chorus and George himself doing backup vocals. Beautiful! "It Don't Come Easy" is easily another Ringo masterpiece; the guitar intro shines and Ringo delivers "It Don't Come Easy" without a superfluous note. "You're Sixteen (You're Beautiful And You're Mine)" remains an excellent, strong cover with brilliant vocals backup by Harry Nilsson. Awesome!

Ringo does a great job with John Lennon's "I'm The Greatest." Listen for John on harmony vocals, too. The key changes on "I'm The Greatest" bolster this number as well. "Only You (And You Alone)" give us Ringo doing another cover, this time of a song by The Platters. Ringo shows off his great vocal range with this tune; and the melody touches me with its beauty. "Only You (And You Alone)," in Ringo's competent care, becomes one of the most beautiful love ballads I've ever heard.

"Early 1970" features Ringo singing of the breakup of The Beatles; what an awesome arrangement! "No-No Song" gives us an excellent tune by Ringo about saying no to drugs; "No-No Song" showcases Ringo rocking sweet and soft to make this one h*** of a song!

There's another under this same title for $24.99, so I'm hoping they will eventually put up more info and say it's the DVD edition.
