Final thoughts: Stop and Smell the Roses is a rare gem,a diamond in the rough,a great catch,a true Ringo classic! In my humble opinion it deserve's to be placed right at the top of the all time Ringo favorite's. If you can buy Private Property - Ringo Starr - Stop And Smell The Roses new or used Go For It.
You wont be dissapointed. Trouble is, it was only released in Canada and Germany. Until he dried out and took Private Property - Ringo Starr - Stop And Smell The Roses first All-Starr band on the road. That would be the first step toward the highly successful regeneration of his recording and performing career. I'm a big Beatles fan, although, I'm the first to admit that most of Ringo's post-Beatles recordings are pretty lame.
The "Ringo" album is hands-down his best, followed by the very good "Goodnight Vienna". The second five songs what would have been Side B on the original vinylunfortunately, aren't nearly as memorable. The rest is just filler. And filler on a Ringo album is hard to bare.
Still, I think this album deserves more credit than it's given. Certainly, it deserves another re-issue as one of Ringo's most essential albums. In fact, none had made a good album since at least '72 or ' Ringo in the early Private Property - Ringo Starr - Stop And Smell The Roses isn't much worse than Paul, John, or George during the same period.
But, unlike the others, Ringo managed to retain most of his talent and charm a decade after the breakup. But, if you are a die-hard fan and want to know what the Beatles were up to during this lost period, "Stop and Smell the Roses" is a good place to start. This is one of Ringo's best solo efforts. I always liked Ringo's solo stuff especially when the material fits with his image or personality. My favorite tracks are "Drumming is my Madness", "Attention", "Wrack my Brain", a 'new' version of "Back of Boogaloo" featuring a tour of references to Beatles and earlier solo songsand the title track.
As others have mentioned, great adlibbing by Ringo on that. The price of the album is worth it just for the adlibbing! Ringo, a fan of country music, included a version of a favorite, "Sure to Fall". This album was mostly recorded in mid and released just 2 months after John Lennon was killed. While it doesn't include a corny cash-in tribute song to his Beatle brother, the album with its good natured feeling, had a real positive effect after such sadness. How typical of Ringo!
