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!!!!!

Am listening to some of Ringo's work via either youtube or my music catalogue. Have heard Beacoups, Sentimental Journey, Ringo and Rotogravure and next will give Goodnight Vienna a spin. Omitting the late 70's and 80's albums (they are meant to be dreadfu, tho might try out Stop and Smell The Roses at some point) which is good to listen to of the others?

As mentioned above somewhere I liked Y Not, but haven't yet made it past 1970 otherwise so yet to listen to some of the later ones.

May be an acquired taste, but Walk With You sent shivers up my spine and I liked some of the tracks with Joe Walsh.

I thought it was ok and nothing more, nothing set me alight or made me want to download. Truth be told i cant remember much of it - not a great sign. After All Those Years is another in Ringo's odes to the Beatles, right?

I'll keep going tho, i think all of his albums are on youtube.

Yes, from Early 1970 on he has been pretty consistent with his laments for the loss of the band and the time with his mates.

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 YouTube and Vimeo.

WETSroosa played Scouse the Mouse on Fab Files today. His whole show was about Ringo. Next week it's all about Paul. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 @WETSRoosa, does the Paul show come with a bucket of cold water for Ahhh Girls?

My Ringo buying suggestion : GET THEM ALL. Listen many times over. I heart Ringo's voice, drums, music, the whole package!

^ Bearing in mind some of them are only available on obscure Lithuanian record labels at ridiculously high prices (erm, kidding, think it was Canadian?) - unless you have alternate sources :)

Nope. You must provide your own buckets. I'm not responsible for any combustible reactions Paul's fan girls might have. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Okay. At least I have a week to prepare.
