  • Released in September 1970, BEAUCOUPS OF BLUES was a huge improvement over Ringo Starr's somewhat awkward solo debut, SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY. Though the pure country music on BEAUCOUPS OF BLUES was presumably quite foreign to most Beatles fans in 1970, in hindsight, this is a fine country-rock album. While Ringo's deadpan voice seemed limited when compared to the voices of his fellow Beatles, it is perfectly suited to the simple melodies and down-to-earth lyrical concerns of the rock-oriented country songs he performs on this album.
  • Backed by top Nashville musicians like pedal steel guitarist Pete Drake, Charlie Daniels, and several members of Elvis Presley's band, Ringo wrings every ounce of emotion out of such compelling country noir narratives as "Love Don't Last Long" and the Vietnam-era heartbreaker "Silent Homecoming." With BEAUCOUPS OF BLUES, Ringo made a raw, real country-rock album that fits alongside anything Gram Parsons and Mike Nesmith were doing at that time. It remains one of Ringo's finest solo albums.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/29/70, p.40) - "...Coming from the lips of Ringo Starr, the songs sound terrific...a thoroughly enjoyable album, the kind you play repeatedly."

Q (7/95, p.147) - 3 Stars - Good - "...it's a collection of contemporary country songs, delivered by Ringo Starr in a languidly melancholic style curiously reminiscent of Michael Nesmith....always likable and original."

Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.113) - "...BEAUCOUPS OF BLUES saw Ringo in Nashville with a stellar cast of country players....The songs were new, supplied by local writers, and the groove is loose and fluent..."
