And me! I still have to access the internet using stone knives and bearskins.

Just ordered my copy off the net with the DVD, i hope this collection
sells well. There's a huge poster of the album nearest my record store, so
that looks very nice! ;) GO RINGO!!

I was looking in my Guinness British Hit Singles and Albums book this morning and it's 33 years since Ringo was last on the UK Album charts with Goodnight Vienna # 30 1974.
That as to be some kind of record having a 33 year break between albums ?
Hope it goe's higher next week  :)

I'm really proud of Ringo. This is his best UK Chart Position ever after "Sentimental Journey" and "Ringo", both reached #7, so this is his best position since 1973!

Let's wait for the US position. I hope an entry on the Top 100.  ;)

Ringo is promoting his new best of cd/dvd. This is a very informative radio-interview of 50 minutes: LISTEN!

Plus two video's: It Don't Come Easy and Back Off Boogaloo

Links require a fast internetconnection. Sorry Marshall.


I hope you have written permission from the producers.

It was part of a promotion set. As long as I have your permission, it'll be fine.

I had forgotten the first few seconds from the Back Off Boogaloo promo feature in Ringo's film Born To Boogie , the bit where Ringo and Bolan are doing " Some People Like To Rock " link  infront of the red cadilac. :)
Got my copy today i playing it now it's great, im also pleased Ringo credits Bolan with the title of Back Off Boogaloo .

" Marc Bolan was a friend. He came over for dinner one night and used to talk like that - he'd say things like Back Off Boogaloo. I went to bed and that song just came into my head in the twilight hour "

Nice one Ringo you not forgetting Marc like that , always thought it was a very Bolan sounding song , it's a real favourite :)

Meanwhile, the album is not released in Argentina yet (my country...). (In moments like these I really want to be in your location guys...) And the album doesn't appeared in the entire United World Chart Top 40. It was released in the United States right?

I got my copy Tuesday and, being the huge Ringo fan that I am (just ask Mr Kite!), I played it straight away! Great memories - I haven't played or heard Beaucoups of Blues for decades (literally!)! I played that track over and over again when I was a kid - no wonder I can't stand C&W now!!

The only low-point for me is the inclusion of Act Naturally and the front cover (it looks a bit cheap!). GREAT album though! Well done Richie, hope it's a big hit for you :-)

Yay!! I got it too!!  ;D  ;D
The problem was that I couldn't get it where I live (probably hasn't been released yet, and I know there's the internet as Bobber correctly pointed out, but I don't trust internet shopping), and Dad was over in the UK so I sort of mentioned the fact that if he saw a Ringo album somewhere by any chance it would make a nice "souvenir"... so he got me Photograph!  ;D Very happy indeed ^___^

I really like the songs on it... some of them I haven't heard before (and now I really want to get Vertical Man!) And I love the comentaries... great album - Go Ringo!  :)

I'd ask my friends to come and see... an Octopus's Garden with me ^___^

You're right! But I prefer to wait a little because buy through internet is quite expensive. At least for me.   ::)
And also I bought 4 CDs in the last two weeks. I got to stop!  :P

Yeah! Two days ago I bought Music Of My Mind by Stevie Wonder. What you think about that album? Do you like it? I've listening to it just 2 or 3 times and it seems really good, but nothing compares to Innervisions.

That's the only Stevie Wonder album i still need that has a good rating in
most album polls! :) I like Innervisions in places but not a huge fan of it :-/
I love Fullfilligness, songs in Key of life, & Talking Book (which is my fav).
I may just put Stevie Wonder & Marvin Gaye as the best singers ever!! :)
