iTunes Review

In his solo career, Ringo Starr has never claimed to be more than an entertainer. He’s fully aware of his vocal limitations and knows for sure that a certain amount of the audience comes out because he was once the drummer in the Beatles. With all that known, Starr goes about enlisting guests and arranging setlists to give audiences the most bang for their buck. This collection documents the 2008 tour. It features Billy Squier doing “The Stroke,” Edgar Winter offering up a “Free Ride,” Colin Hay of Men At Work asking “Who Can It Be Now” and Gary Wright bringing back the AM-radio haze of “Dream Weaver.” Ringo adds fan favorites such as “Act Naturally,” “Yellow Submarine,” “With A Little Help From My Friends/It Don’t Come Easy” and “Photograph.” The entire performance is a straightforward professional stage-show meant to keep people clapping their hands. There are no moments of grand introspection. No attempts at anything other than giving the people what they want. Nothing wrong with that. It makes a great tour souvenir and the playing is inspired throughout.

Mix It Up

While having a recorded memento of the various incarnations of the All Starr Band is good to have, there in lies the problem. Ringo has quite a number of solo songs that have never been given a live rendition, and too many songs he recorded, especially with the Beatles, that he does on every tour and thereby wind up on the live album. Do I need yet another live version of "Boys," "Act Naturally" or "Yellow Submarine," especially when there is no discernible difference between recordings? I say this after buying this CD and also seeing him on his 2010 tour, which also offered little variation of Ringo's song selection. I know there are some songs that Ringo has to perform like "It Don't Come Easy," Photograph," "Yellow Submarine" and "Little Help...," but that gives him an opportunity to fill in some rarely or never-before performed songs. I am quite happy that he did "Oh My My" for this tour but there are a number of songs from the late 1970s when Ringo wasn't getting the love from radio that are still worthy of performance. I mean, "A Dose of Rock n Roll" would be an excellent concert opener, and there are more. Yeah, it's an OK souvenir from the tour, better than a T-shirt and a lot less expensive too.

Only for die hard fans

I love Ringo and the Beatles but his voice on this CD is just plain terrible and aged.

Awesome!

I've always liked Ringo.. And this album hasn't changed my mind. Yes, his voice does sound older, however, it does not sound bad. I really enjoy this album and love hearing music from Ringo!

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....
