From the authors of Ringo Starr And The Beatles Beat, Ringo’s White Album explores Ringo’s contribution to the Beatles’ groundbreaking double L.P. THE BEATLES, commonly known as the White Album. With so many diverse styles and genres, whether it be Rock ’n’ Roll, Blues, prototype Heavy Metal, Country & Western, Dance-Band, Ballads or Folk, Ringo once again proved he was up to the task – and then some.
With song by song analysis, discover how Ringo’s unique drumming style and approach shaped the sound and feel of the White Album. Read how Ringo’s departure from the group was dealt with by John, Paul and George, and how the group dynamic soon returned to EMI’s Abbey Road Studios. The Hey Jude/Revolution single is also covered in detail, with previously unseen photographs of the shooting of the promotional films.
