Inspired by the virtual trophy on the wall - I think it's time for an ongoing Ringo appreciation thread.  Even if I am the only one to contribute - hah - just kidding :)

I think we all know how often Ringo pops up on other projects; while he himself loved the company it is also obvious that he was a great contributor to anything he worked on; musically as well as helping create a great 'vibe' in the studio.  To get things going, let's take a look at a (very) few of the places he turns up post 1969:

  • With George; Bangladesh, All Things Must Pass, Shankar Family and Friends
  • With Paul; Broad Street, Flaming Pie
  • With John; Plastic Ono Band
  • With The Band; Last Waltz
  • With Carl Perkins; A Rockabilly Session
  • With Harry Nilsson; Pussy Cats
  • With ELO; Zoom
  • With almost everyone on his All-Starr tours

I'll add a few more from time to time, but please chime in with some Ringo spotting that builds the legend.  We have a thread elsewhere discussing a newspaper article suggesting it is time for a re-evaluation, I think the history shows his significance from day 1.

Oh, and re ^ - it's apparent that Ringo is the 'goto guy' for so many people - I'm sure he didn't invite himself :)

The Doris Troy album -some of his best work, in my opinion. Doris had a lot of nice things to say about him, think she was taken aback by his performances?

" They should do Marmite flavour."

Ah - nice find.

How about with the Manhattan Transfer in 1976 - played drums on one of their albums (Coming Out).  This guy gets around :)

Another interesting one, VERY interesting in fact.  I took a look at the personnel on that one, Klaus was there as well.  Kind of nice that they could still work together even after the split.

"When he drummed on my Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band album, I was totally amazed that he had no difficulty in following the very complex improvisational vocals I did – again, no overdubs."

If you've heard the album, you'll know what she means!
