Tears Of A Clown ? Ringo Starr – “Beaucoups of Blues” – Full Album


‘Beaucoups of Blues’ was Ringo’s second full-length release in 1970, coming after his debut Sentimental Journey. Beaucoups of Blues missed the UK charts, reached #65 in the US. The album did better in Canada reaching #34, Australia at #33, and Norway at #21 (Best sales in Norway? Why Norway? Anybody out there from Norway?)

Some might say: “Ringo does Country & Western? Arrest him”, “My God, That Voice!”, “Shut up, You’re a Drummer”, “Go and make Some Silly Movies, Starkey”

Others might say: Bob Woffinden in his book The Beatles Apart “Ringo took his chance well and his homely lugubrious voice suited those typically maudlin country songs like a charm. It’s one of the best Beatle solo albums”.
In an interview with Jann Wenner from Rolling Stone magazine in December 1970, John Lennon called the album “a good record”.

I say: “Stop crying you’re heart out, Ringo, this is a damn fine ‘I Feel Miserable’ LP”
