One of my all time Top 10 favourite albums, Ringo appears on five tracks, George pops up on one and there’s Beatles luminaries Klaus Voormann and Nicky Hopkins to enjoy too. Just a tremendous, infectious bundle of joy that deserves better recognition IMO. Not a weak track anywhere, though cheese is apparent quite deliberately all in the name of fun. Anyone else know and like this?

I’m more of a fan of his earlier albums, but Nilsson Schmilsson and Son of Schmilsson are fun listens and the famous names that play across them are impressive too. I can’t really decide on a favourite from SoS, maybe Joy or the infamous You’re Breaking My Heart…

Of all Harry’s collaborations with the solo Beatles in the early-mid 70s, my favourite has to be his backing vocals on Ringo’s cover of Only You (which also features John). Quite a sweet nod to his future wife Una.
