The latter features prominently on many tracks, indicating the fact that it was originally intended to be a country album – an approach most obvious on ‘So Wrong for So Long’, which boast’s the most sophisticated lyrics on offer and was co-written with Dave Stewart. Like most Ringo albums there are plenty of other stars involved including Paul McCartney (‘We’re On the Road Again’ being a rockier and more literal band on the run and the slower ‘Show Me the Way’), Jeff Lynne, Peter Frampton, Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter and Steve Lukather.
Again, like other Ringo albums, there’s an overtly autobiographical element (‘Electricity’ referencing Liverpool and Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, for example).
There’s also variety of styles. In addition to country there’s a ballad (‘Show Me the Way), rock both 50s-style (my favourite track, Shake it Up’) and more modern and even the reggae-influenced ‘King of the Kingdom’ (which manages to sample ‘One Love’ lyrically). The title track is probably the most reminiscent of that band that Ringo joined after the Hurricanes.
All in all this is a rather variable collection in terms of song quality and production but there’s more than enough to entertain those who like Ringo’s previous work. Just as you can’t not warm to the man, it’s impossible despite, or even because of, its limitations, not to warm to his music.
