There are a couple of Lennon connections on the album, Ringo-versions of Lennon's "Grow Old With Me" and a song John used to sing in the Beatles, "Money (That's what I want)".

The album will be released on CD, on LP and on a limited edition blue LP.

"I'm sure he'll stop when there is peace." That's a classic...

Ringo And his old New Song. The same stuff from around 20 Years. What exactly is peace And love in different contexts? Is good? Is bad? I Love Ringo, but god, the same p&l stuff And songs sounds anacronic.

Ringo pushes the peace and love thing as a tribute to John Lennon. He said something at one point like, that since John was not here any more, he would take up the Peace and Love chant.

Boy, what a band. Each guy in The Beatles had a unique style of vocals, and when they came together... whoa!
