Fandango’s Prompt today was photograph.
To be honest, my first thought was this song, but I presented a song the other day and I like to mix things up a bit.
I’m not a big fan of Ringo Starr, I know very little of his post-Beatles work. I found this track of his – which was co-written by George Harrison – when I heard it at the Concert for George, held on the first anniversary of George’s death.
I’m not a particularly sentimental person, but this is one of the few concerts I regret not having attended -instead I had to make do with watching the DVD, a few years later. I specifically thought of this version of the song, and you can find absolutely everything on YouTube, so I thought I might share it, if you fancy a listen. This entire clip is a long one because it covers both of Ringo’s contributions, but it was the first of them that rattled my cage.
If you don’t know it, the whole concert is worth a listen (but then I’m biased) – the first half covers the Indian music that George loved, the second covers some of his songs, performed by George’s pals, like Tom Petty and Eric Clapton. I was never a big fan of Joe Brown either but he plays a wonderful song on the uke.
