Y Not CD


Initial UK Release Date 12 January 2010
Initial UK Catalogue Number UMG 0602527273808
Weeks On UK Chart (to date) Failed To Chart
Peak UK Chart Position


Ringo’s first self produced album (along with Bruce Sugar) was released on 12 January 2010 in both the UK and the US. It again failed to register in the UK charts though did manage to reach number 58 in the US during a brief two week stay. The US was the only country to get a vinyl release, everywhere else was CD only.

It was recorded in 2009 at the Roccabella Sudios in both LA and London and, as per usual, featured many guest artists, several of whom co wrote the songs with Ringo. Paul McCartney appears on two tracks – he plays bass on Peace Dream and adds some marvelous backing vocals on Walk With You. Others contributing include Joe Walsh, who co wrote Fill In The Blanks, Dave Stewart, who co wrote The Other Side Of Liverpool and Time, Richard Marx, who co wrote Mystery Of The Night, Edgar Winter, Billy Squire and Joss Stone, who co wrote and performs a duet with Ringo on the final track Who’s Your Daddy.

The UK/European CD release, made in Germany, was on Universal Music Group International under catalogue number 0602527273808 whilst the US release was on Hip-O Records under catalogue number B0013792-02.

My UK/European CD release is shown below.
