I’m surprised there hasn’t been a thread made for this song yet, nor are there any details about It on the site (apart from a little bit in Joe’s article about the RINGO album.) 

This is favorite song off the album, plus I really like the extended version’s ending from The Very Best Of compilation. Does anyone know why was not featured on RINGO?

Yeah, there aren’t many Ringo songs with threads. It’s a real shame. This is my favorite track off of Ringo as well.

The extended version is also a bonus track on Goodnight Vienna. I think it was originally a B side to the album version.

There’s a lot of things I like about 6:00. I like the way Paul plays the synthesizer, it’s like he found a really juicy sound and capitalized on it. I can’t describe exactly what it’s like but it’s sort of chewy like licorice and punchy & spicy. 

And I think it’s a good vehicle for Ringo’s voice, especially when Ringo does sort of high-end almost shouting type singing lines that also have a nice melody to them. For example the part “I don’t treat you like I’d like to treat you” — I just like the way he sings that

The song is one of my favourites on the album. I love Ringo’s vocals on it.
