Odd question but i can download tracks off two Ringo albums for free (
Bad Boy and Stop and Smell the Roses). I haven't heard either and have no plan to (sorry Ringo) so are any tracks on these worth grabbing or are both albums filled with skippers. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 I dislike Back Off Boogaloo by the way, too repetitive.

Thank you.apple01

I'm sure NOTHING from Rings is a skipper :)

 

 

Oh, oooooo, oh, oooooo, oh, oooooo. I was so wishing for you to be here this morning when I saw this question. Ahhhhh, oh, ooooo, welcome back!!!!!

 

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Outside of a greatest hits album, I'd suggest not going too crazy on Ringo albums. You'll honestly probably never play them more than once.

It's a matter of opinion.  If you happen to enjoy Ringo's drumming and his voice, you may enjoy his albums.  I do relisten to several of his albums, but others are not worth checking out -- Bad Boy, Ringo the Fourth, Rotogravure, and Scouse the Mouse are all albums I would stay away from.

They just played what I guess is the theme song from Scouse the Mouse on Saturday with the Beatles. I'd never heard of it, so I looked it up on Wikipedia. I wonder if any of the artwork from the proposed TV special is still around. With Paul working on Bruce McMouse, imagine if they'd ended up with dueling Beatle rodent specials.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Wogblog has posted that two long out of print Ringo's albums, Ringo's Rotogravure and Ringo The Fourth, have been added to iTunes for download. 

Note: a search of itunes reveals that these are currently only available in the US iTunes.

Thanks.  While I prefer physical 'stuff' I really wonder why his entire output can't be available in digital form - I can't imagine it would take more than a few hours of work to digitise it and put it up there.  Hopefully what is there will make it down to our itunes one day.

@Filipe, i've moved your post here as it fits nicely with the others, hopefully you're ok with that.

Ringo's middle period catalogue has long been overlooked so its difficult getting most of what you are looking for. I'm not familiar with the Portugal iTunes and amazon (guessing they're your local stores going by your location) but: 

'Ringo The Fourth' has recently been added to the US iTunes store, its not in the UK one but it may be in Portugal's  

'Bad Boy' is available in the UK iTunes so presumably elsewhere - but region variations may again apply.

'Stop And Smell The Roses' and 'Old Wave' have long been forgotten and fallen out of print. You can probably get both on cd from amazon but adding in p&p will no doubt go over your limit.

All of the albums are available in full on youtube, there are plenty of ways of getting them from there to your listening device just have a google search for how to.
