When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Ringo Starr “Ringo”

Today’ Cool Album of the Day is by one Cool Dude, on his 70th Birthday….Ringo Starr,”Ringo.”

People forget that directly after The Beatles breakup, that Ringo arguably came out of the box with the quickest start to solo hit music.

Ringo had a nice string in the early 70s.

‘It Don’t Come Easy’ (which was just a single) had hit huge.

It was followed up by two #1 hits from the “Ringo” album.  ‘Photograph’ and ‘You’re Sixteen’ topped the US Billboard Singles Charts.

‘It Don’t Come Easy’ was co-written with George Harrison. Did you know that Steven Stills played piano on this song?  Wow, the stuff you find out when you put this thing together!

Happy Birthday, Mr. Starkey, The ‘Human Metronome!’
