By S Riaz TOP 500 REVIEWER on September 21, 2015
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautifully presented coffee table book of photographs from Ringo Starr’s personal collection. It is fair to say that you can really ‘hear’ Ringo’s voice in the comments about the photographs; which is a nice way of saying that there is not a great deal of detail. Comments such as, “That’s a very nice portrait of John Lennon, looking rather spiffy,” or “These are shots that no one else could have,” kind of sum up the majority of the description. Yes, there are short pieces of writing about some pictures, but the real joy here is in the actual photographs themselves.

These photographs divide into Ringo as a child (I found him easily enough in the picture of him at school – see whether you can do the same!), his adolescence, his time in Rory Storm and the Hurricanes and then, of course, the Beatles. There are a few post-Beatles, but the bulk of this book takes us up to the mid-Sixties. Along the way are wonderful bits of memorabilia – such as letters from Brian Epstein and Rory Storm – and great glimpses of Beatlemania from the inside (pictures taken from hotel rooms, of fans leaning to get a glimpse of a Beatle and of Mal and Neil, who formed pretty much the core of their entourage during those touring years).

The book encompasses the early years; including filming, “A Hard Day’s Night,” and trips to Paris, Miami, India and Japan. and show the Beatles relaxed and at ease. If you are not a Beatles fan, this book probably will not mean much to you. If you are a fan, you will pore over every page. I particularly liked the photo’s of a young Richy and there are portraits of John and Paul in the studio that are easily as good as a professional photographer could have taken. A great glimpse into Ringo’s personal photographs and I am sure all fans thank him for sharing these with us.

This book is outstanding! As you go through the pictures and read Ringo's words, it's as if he is showing you the photos and talking to you directly. I'm learning things about him and his early days and later, his days with the Beatles. It's a joy to read and own. * * * * * (5 Stars)!!!

No great art here - just casual and fun photos taken as any one of us would take of our friends. No posed or promotional photos, which means they are honest and sincere pictures of the boys being themselves. I loved Ringo's comment about each of the photos as it feels as if he is just sitting across for you and telling you about each photo with his characteristic humor. Really a fun book!

This book is so beautiful that it's hard to believe it's not the limited edition that was released first. The book is filled with full page photos taken by Ringo mostly when the Beatles were living in each others pockets while on tour. There are many, many candid photos that have never been published before, accompanied by off-hand comments by Ringo, as though you were sitting in his living room going through his photo albums with him, while he jogged his memory about the incidents recorded.
Superlative in every way.

This, like Louise Harrison's book "My Kid Brother's Band a.k.a. the Beatles" is a long awaited treat Beatle fans will love. What makes this one special is that it is a compilation of photographs Ringo culled from his own personal collection. Reading this is like having Ringo narrate his life story which indeed is a very interesting one.

Although Ringo does not offer more than a cursory comment about each photograph, seeing the photographs was what made a good book even better.

Readers walk down the Long & Winding Road with Ringo from his earliest days in the Dingle where he grew up; his protracted and traumatic illnesses to his musical career which changed his life and ultimately the world. Ringo's early days at Butlin's Holiday Camp where many musicians convened is covered; so is his stint with Rory Storm and later, as of August 16, 1962 the Beatles! (Prior to becoming a Beatle, Ringo often sat in for their former drummer Pete Best. Ringo was plainly a good fit and a good match for the final line up of the Fab Four.)

Ringo has always been distinctive in appearance; even as a boy he is readily recognizable in school photographs. Readers literally watch Ringo grow up in this book by the photographs of him at various stages in his life. Since Ringo's days as a Beatle are what draws people to this book, the majority of this book covers his days drumming with the Beatles. There are some post-Beatles' photographs in the book as well.

I loved the inclusion of memorabilia such as letters and Ringo's own personal accounts of the traumatic illnesses he endured. For years I have wanted to hear his take on it as it sounded truly terrifying to me.

For Christmas, I purchased this book Photograph for the following people: My cousin (who is a photographer), my wife, and her parents. We are all die hard Beatles fans (except for my cousin the photographer) and couldn't wait to get the scoop on Ringo's intimate moments with the Fab Four.

What a delight! My wife and I sifted through every page when she opened the book on Christmas morning. The photos are amazing, but the part we really enjoyed were the captions by Ringo Starr. They are written in such a way as to make you feel he is sitting right next to you sharing his memories. So casual, so cool, so Ringo. Even my cousin loved the book! #Win! And the 3D cover effect is neat too.

This book makes a perfect gift, as well as a wonderful addition to your coffee table, and is sure to put a smile on your face. Enjoy!
