RINGO, the Fab Four skin-pounder's third solo album, is widely regarded as his finest, due to the happy synchronicity of good songs, good production, and a first-class batch of musicians all coming together in a thoughtful but organic manner. For one thing, George Harrison and "fifth Beatle" Billy Preston are all over this album, as are superdrummer Jim Keltner (Ringo's not too egotistical to share the drum throne) and most of The Band.
Ringo also gets considerable compositional assists from his old mates; Harrison co-wrote the impossibly infectious (and somewhat Badfinger-esque) "Photograph," among others, and Lennon contributes the album's opener, the brash, ironic "I'm the Greatest." Ringo's personable, unassuming vocal style makes a perfect match for Randy Newman's early classic "Have You Seen My Baby." Aided by the popwise but Ringo-friendly production of Richard Perry, our boy makes a convincing case for his way with '50s-style material on "You're Sixteen." "You're Sixteen," "Oh My My," and "Photograph" were all Top 10 hits, which made RINGO the commercial apex of the drummer's solo career.
