Yeay. Ringo would be happy. His first couple of albums (pre-Ringo) have a very comforting feel to them and are good to hear.

I've been trying to find some of his albums in Glasgow but nothing, not even a greatest hits. Even with George you're lucky to find anything aside from All Things Must Pass and the Bangladesh concert, very occassionally a copy of Living In The Material World or Cloud 9 will appear but nothing else.

Yes, MMM, the "cookie" is in reference to Hold On, which, of course, Ringo also played on 8)

 

I've always loved Early 1970, although it's kind of sad in pointing out how estranged Paul was from the other 3 by then, although as was proven a few years later, he ended up being correct in that whole matter (the Klein thing)

It does say a lot about the time written that Ringo writes "I wonder if he'll play with me" for the Paul verse whilst he knows John and George will play with Ringo when about. Thankfully that's all changed and they have played a lot together from the Eighties onwards. Actually coming to think of it is there any record before John's death of Ringo and Paul playing on the same record, I know they did at Eric's wedding but that was very informal and more jamming when drunk?

I'm surprised at you asking that, mmm. On 1973's Ringo Paul contributed "mouth sax" to You're Sixteen and wrote Six O'Clock on which he played piano and synthesiser, contributed backing vocals, and came up with the string and flute arrangements. On 1976's Ringo's Rotogravure Paul contributed Pure Gold, recording the backing track with Linda while on a break from the Wings Over America tour, and supervising Ringo's vocal overdub on 19 June. On 1981's Stop and Smell the Roses several tracks appeared that had been produced by Paul between 11 and 21 July 1980. Private Property and Attention were both McCartney originals and Sure to Fall was the Carl Perkins song The Beatles had often performed. Paul played bass and piano on all three, as well as contributing backing vocals. The 1994 CD reissue added another track from the same sessions, the Starkey composition You Can't Fight Lightning - bizarrely this featured Ringo on guitar and Paul on drums.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Someone really should slap me for asking such a question as the answer was so damn obviously yes. Mja, i apologise for wasting your time as well as thanking you for taking the time to reply. 

 

Did George write Early 1970, i know he wrote It Don't Come Easy?

Ringo is the sole creditor on Early 1970.

but then he is on It Don't Come Easy as well and we all know that that was a lot of George so that doesn't help much. Its heart to see George waived his songwriting credit for IDCE.apple01
