Does anyone else own this?  I picked it up recently because I had none of his solo stuff until then.

I must warn you; if you hate fun, don't buy it. Otherwise, get it. When I first opened it and popped it in the CD player, I kept saying to myself "yeah, I remember this one!" on every song.

My wife came down into the "man cave" and said, "is that Ringo?" Even though John is her favorite singer/songwriter, Ringo is her favorite Beatle. When I showed her the cover, she said, "let me grab a couple of cold ones and I'll join you!" Have I mentioned in the past 5 minutes that she's a keeper? Anyway, I started the disc from the beginning and we sang and laughed and had a great time. I've listened to it at least 4 times since and love every song on it.

But, again, heed my warning. You may not like it if you hate fun.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth. Blessed is he whose fame does not outshine his truth. Every Little Thing you buy from Amazon or iTunes will help the Beatles Bible if you use these links: Amazon | iTunes

Didn't Ringo have more Top 10 singles than any other ex-Beatle by 1975 or something? I think I read that somewhere...that's a pretty good collection, but 1973's Ringo is worth owning too!

I don't actually have the album but I've heard most of the songs on it. I just love Ringo's solo songs, most of them are just so much fun. But Photograph does kind of make me sad when I hear it. (And that's been a lot lately. Thanks Oldies 94.3)

Quick question: Is Ringo's "cowboy voice" on this?

What would an example of his "cowboy voice" be?

Um. I always thought "Don't Pass Me By" sounded cowboy-ish. Because of the fiddle. 🙂

Speaking of country music, I checked out Beaucoup of Blues...not great. Unless you like the genre more than I do, maybe.

I only "Ringo" and "Goodnight Vienna". Are there any other good Ringo records?

Yeah, but what percentage of his songs, especially singles, were top ten? If I recall correctly, Ringo had two solo albums out by the end of 1970. He was quite prolific.

A high percent of singles. His first mainstream album was 1973's Ringo, which spawned 3 top 10 hits.

Those weren't pop albums - meaning they weren't serious attempts at the charts.
