This past week the legendary Ringo Starr was inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist. He was the final Beatle to be inducted as a solo artist. So now all the members of the Beatles are in the hall of fame twice. Once as a member of The Beatles, and then as individual solo artist.
I am beyond thrilled that Ringo finally receive this high award. For the longest time, I have felt that his solo career has been grossly overlooked. (About two years ago, I wrote a posting discussing this very subject matter. You can find that post here.) Ringo has some absolute hidden gem albums such as: Ringorama, Beaucoup of Blues, and his latest album Postcards From Paradise.
His new album, Postcards from Paradise is particularly ear grabbing. It is home to some fiercely catchy songs such as Rory and the Hurricanes, Bridges, and the title track Postcards From Paradise. Once again Ringo delivers an album that radiates positivity, terrific drumming, and his trademark wit. I highly recommend checking out Postcards From Paradise. It is a great introductory album to Ringo's solo career.
