The album was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, over a three-day period in June 1970.
In the United Kingdom, Beaucoups Of Blues was released on 25 September 1970.
The album was less successful than its predecessor, Sentimental Journey. Beaucoups Of Blues failed to chart in the UK, and peaked at 65 on the US Billboard 200. In Canada it reached number 34 on the RPM albums chart.
The poor commercial performance led to Starr refraining from recording another album until 1973’s Ringo. In the interim he focused on his acting career.
