iTunes Review

Ringo Starr’s solo success in the early ‘70s was largely the result of his likable everyman image and some fine songs that he could handle. After his initial success, though, times changed; by the late ‘70s, he was out of step with the music world. A long break let him come back in the ‘90s. And once Ringo locked into the "All Starr Band" concept—in which an ensemble of other famous and semi-famous musicians played their songs along with Ringo’s hits—that became his formula, and a pleasing one it is. Over the years, many live All Starr albums have been released as tour souvenirs. This one from 2003 features a recording of the tour's opening night at the Casino Rama, outside of Toronto. Percussionist Sheila E. returns from the 2001 band (and performs “The Glamorous Life”), while John Waite is on bass, Paul Carrack’s on keyboards, and Men at Work’s Colin Hay is on guitar (also performing “Who Can It Be Now” and “Down Under”). Ringo performs “Memphis in Your Mind” (from his then-current album, Ringorama) and a nice chunk of classic Beatles songs.

Clearing the confusion...

So many of the previous reviewers seem confused about the association with Ringo and these songs from other bands. I'd like to clarify: Ringo has a long history of getting "a little help from his friends", and the nine different touring versions of Ringo's All-Stars are no exception. Many rock performers from many different bands, each with hit songs of their own, join Ringo on stage as one "band", and each star gets to perform their hits. I got this 2003 "set list" from WikiPedia, and the songs that Ringo doesn't sing are credited: It Don't Come Easy / Honey Don't / Memphis In Your Mind / How Long? (Paul Carrack) / Down Under (Colin Hay) / Isn't It Time (John Waite) / A Love Bizarre (Sheila E.) / Boys / Overkill (Colin Hay) / Act Naturally / You're Sixteen / Yellow Submarine / Love Will Keep Us Alive (Paul Carrack) / Beautiful World (Colin Hay) / Here Comes the Sun / Never Without You / Don't Pass Me By / No No Song / Tempted (Paul Carrack) / When I See Your Eyes (John Waite) / The Glamorous Life (Sheila E.) / I Wanna Be Your Man / The Living Years (Paul Carrack) / Missing You (John Waite) / Who Can It Be Now? (Colin Hay) / Photograph / Don't Go Where the Road Don't Go / With A Little Help From My Friends ---- SO, it's not that Ringo is up there singing all these songs himself. And iTunes doesn't do much to clarify the situation, either. Hope this helps.

Ringo is Outstanding

I finally decided to go and see Ringo on his 2006 tour. I had listened to his live stuff on previous CD's but I found out none of them match the real live performance. This CD comes closest. Every song is played well, sounds good and reminds me of being there. The Ringo songs are his typical set list plus one or two you don't get too often. The others in his all-starr band depend on what you like. You have to be there to really appreciate how good Shelia E is on drums. Even so, I hope we get a Ringo and the Roundheads tour before Ringo hangs it up for good.

Ringo is fab

I saw this All Starr tour in 2003 and this is a wonderful very happy memory for me. I can highly recommend this album. Ringo, of course, is fabulous and plays his greatest hits, plus the wonderful cuts from Ringo Rama, a GREAT album. Unfortunately only one of those is included here, Memphis In Your Mind, but the DVD has the rest I believe. Great all stars too, namely Colin Hay from Men At Work and the incomparable Shelia E- one of the greatest drummer/percussionists of the world! Sheila totally blew me away. I love her. No wonder Ringo brings her along on tour. She shines. There is nothing like seeing Ringo in concert and watching him ask the audience his name and see him smile, hold out his arms and enjoying the wave of love when the audience yells out Ringo. Yes- love is all you need. Peace and Love, Aujouret

Biography

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Ringo Starr, born Richard Starkey, was the drummer in the Beatles from 1962 to 1970 and thus one of the most famous musicians of the '60s. Though the least prominent member of the quartet, he distinguished himself as an occasional singer of good-natured material and as an actor. Upon the group's split, Starr went solo with two novelty projects: the first, an album called Sentimental Journey, found him covering pre-rock standards, and the second, Beaucoups of Blues, was a country music collection....
