Rotogravure

Postby Harry » Thu Apr 15, 2004 8:52 pm

I haven't seen a topic for this album so I thought I'd start one.

Well, whilst Ringo is the best, I think this one is his second best. Not sure why probably because it has a song from J,P & G on it and the songs are all very listenable. I really like the first song A Dose of Rock'n'Roll, it has nice guitar solo. John's Cookin' is a nice beaty song too as is Cryin' and Paul's Pure Gold for the ballads on the album.

I don´t think I has heard that album for 6 months, I think it´s one of his 5 worst.

I don't think that album was (and still isn't) weak at all.Ringo had 4 (what i believe to be) classic best of his 70s solo carreer from "Beaucoups of Blues"-"Rotogravure".
"Roto" was the last great classic Ringo album until 1991's "Time Takes Time".

I think all of Ringo's albums have a certain quaintness about them, if you like. In fact only two failed to flick my switch, Ringo The Fourth and Bad Boy!
"Roto" is a fine album.

Good point, Mini. I never understood neither what's the meaning of Rotogravure. At some point I thought it was a mistake and it should be called Retrogravure.

Rotogravure... very difficult to pronounciate!

Hi Paulo.. i think the Roto part means something round, maybe the acutal vinyl and Gravure means soemthing nice and tasty.. so it could mean that is supposed to be a nice sounding disc.. I'm making this up.. I have no idea :P
