"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?
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.Read more ›
