"Vertical Man" by Ringo Starr – ****

First released: 1998

After the unqualified success of the material on Ringo’s "Time Takes Time" album from 1992, Ringo continues with the quality on this release. This was my favorite Ringo album in quite some time, until he surpassed this one with the excellent "Ringo Rama" album in 2003. Poor underrated Ringo can’t seem to fix his career. I’m glad that he doesn’t give up and albums like this show us that he has the chops to do excellent work consistently. "Mr. Double-it-Up" and "Everyday" were added as bonus tracks to the Japanese version of the album.
