Ringo's new short video (88 seconds) where he talks about the concerts in South America, Ringo 2012 and wishes everyone a merry christmas and peace and love. (It would have been below but it only shows as a click link.)

I guess it's appropriate how short the video is, given the length of the album.

Sorry, couldn't help myself, and I just bought it anyway, I had just watched the Ryman DVD and liked the 2 songs on it so decided to bump its sales figures from 3000 to 3001 :)

But - I think it could have had an extra or three (some unreleased stuff, whatever).

Gotta love Ringo's ability to surround himself with fine musicians. Ben Tench of the Heartbreakers is a nice surprise. Thanks for sharing the info.

Yeah, and it's nice to see Joe Walsh helping Ringo out again.  :)

 

The album's currently available on pre-order from Amazon (UK) priced at £14:00.  I've ordered mine already, and this is the (rather uninventive) cover:

Speaking of the cover - I have been reversing the booklet so that the pic of Ringo in the shades is on the cover, I think it looks much better as the front of an album:

My favorite song is the one about death, at the end.  Might be one of my favorite Ringo songs.

@Expert Textpert I've tried my best to figure out how "Slow Down" is about death. Can you enlighten me on this one? Your insights and interpretations are so different and interesting. I'm all ears (er, eyes).

Now, that makes sense. Good song. R U Ready? A lot to contemplate there.
