Ringo, "The 4th"

Postby dsnito » Fri Aug 30, 2002 11:23 am

There is a Ringo's album titled "Ringo, The 4th", suggestive title, that means he is the last(and least?) of the Beatles, the shorter, the less-talented in his own thoughts but being ironic at the same time. That's a funny title indeed, but I have to say that this album is one of his weakest too.

Peace.

Never heard this album. But Richard Starkey definitely has a great natural comedic ability. He was great in Help!, among others.

That album was released in 1977, maybe one of the most unknown Ringo's album... That had a slight successful song that appeared on below of the charts called "Drowning In The Sea Of Love", a Disco-like song.

And I don't even know if that's in print in any country.

I still remmember Ringo's role as Athuk or whichever name on "Caveman" film, indeed he is a good comedy actor.
By the way "Act Naturally" is a proper song for him.

I bought it when it came out. Not nearly up to the "Ringo" LP standard. Someday I'm going to get a turntable again. I would like to hear some of this stuff once in a while, but not enough to try and find CD versions.[:D][:D]

I must check out Ringo's stuff . . .

Ringo - both the eldest and youngest Beatle, at the same time (think about it . . .)

I have heard a couple sings off Ringo the 4th. It's...interesting. A disco album doesn't really suit Ringo, but I guess he was in a point in his career where the novelty of Ringo and Goodnight Vienna had worn off in Ringo's Rotogravure, and he had to do something experimental. It didn't work of course, but...
