Now that 'Sgt. Pepper' has been remixed and reissued, Ringo Starr shares his wish list

“I’d like to do the White Album ,” Starr said recently, referring to the 1968 double album officially titled “The Beatles.” “I think Giles should redo that. I don’t know why not. And ‘Abbey Road .’

“But I love the White Album [because] we were back being a band, even though emotionally it was a bit weird between us for a while, and I left the band and came back, and George had all those flowers — you know that story.

“One of the great images to me to this day was the four of us, and the drums, tucked in a room that was like 8 feet by 8 feet or 8 feet by 10 feet and we played ‘Yer Blues ’ together,” he said. “We were back being a band again, and so close — there was no separation …

I’ve told you this before: If you ever want to talk to me about the group, no matter what was going on, after the count-in, we all did our best,” he said. “No one said, ‘That’s not my song.’ Everyone was in after the count-in. I love that — that was the great thing about us.”

Awwww, Ringo. heart

Yet another song pre-release from Ringo! I find it very interesting how different styles the rocking We're On The Road again, the folky So Wrong For So Long and this new song have. I think it's going to be a really exciting album!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I can't wait for the rest of "Give More Love" to drop.

Isn't it in just a few days? a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Am I the only one who absolutely freaking ADORES what he did with Don't Pass Me By ? Supposedly a throwaway-sounding song has new life. The instrumentation is such a better fit I can't describe! The nod to Octopus's Garden was also a nice touch.The harmonica, too!

To get this thread back on topic, instead of all the comments about Ringo's new album that belong in that album's thread, here's a good video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTnxmn2jWjo

and a Guardian article about "a masterful drummer and the Beatles' unsung genius".

This is just a Ringo appreciation thread. As long as it's appreciation of Ringo, it is on-topic.

Not if the posts better fit another thread, @Little Piggy Dragonguy, otherwise we should only two threads - an appreciation thread, and a criticism thread. The idea of having different threads is to group together comments on the same subject so they can be easily read and followed. If you have to search a bunch of threads to find all the comments about the same thing, it makes the forum difficult to navigate.
