I had this on LP and have only just got a CD copy and listened to it again. I have to say I really enjoyed it, I actually find it more coherent than the Ringo album and to me Ringo albums that work get across Ringo's character and this one does. The title track by Lennon is a nice start and finish to the album. All of the songs ooze charm and I like that he included classics like Husbands and Wives. But Snookeroo is a nice biographical song. The NO NO Song came to be meaningful somewhat later, but there is not a song I want to skip and the arrangements are classy and suit Ringo. Ringo doesn't have massive musical talent, but albums like this show that he was at times perfectly able to harvest what he had. Ringo as a solo artist has been a slow grower on me and this is one of his top albums.

Also love the cover with its reference to the Day the Earth Stood still
