One of Ringo Starr's best releases - and his most overlooked

"In 1983 Ringo Starr's album OLD WAVE came out. At that time, oddly, Starr had no record deal in the United States or even England, so OLD WAVE was released in other countries including Canada and Germany.
It's hard to understand why. Twenty years later, this Ringo Starr fan considers OLD WAVE to be the drummer's most overlooked album. More to the point, it's one of Starr's best, with no fewer than seven excellent songs: "Picture Show Life," "She's About A Mover," "Going Down," "In My Car," "As Far As We Can Go," "Alibi," and "Everybody's In A Hurry But Me." Starr's vocals are as good as he gets. Musicians including Joe Walsh, John Entwistle, Waddy Wachtel and Gary Brooker, along with Ringo, play their guts out.
In 1983 I was lucky enough to pick up the Canadian import of Ringo Starr's OLD WAVE at a record collectors show. A few years ago OLD WAVE came out on compact disc, so get it while you can. I will enjoy it for another twenty years."
This is his best L.P. Some great stuff with great folks

"This disc. originally came out in 1983.On RCA records from Canada,Germany,New Zealand,Austalia,and Isreal! It features,Eric Clapton,John Entwhisle,produced by Joe Walsh This is like having the Beatles,The Who,& The Eagles and Cream on one Disc! This is my favorite solo Ringo. Joe Walsh did a funky version of In my car on one of his solo albums. Sadly Ringo will not do any of this stuff live.This disc. should be in print always. as Ringo would say, its a classic!!! My favorite cuts are,Hopeless,I keep forgetin,As far we can go........"
One of Ringo's Best

"This really is a sadly overlooked album. This is not nearly as pop as many of his albums. The music is honest and real and not contrived. It's just good music, well writen and played, and it sounds as fresh today as it did when it first came out."
