I know what you’re thinking: only an ex-Beatle could score a Top 10 hit with a cover of a moldy oldie like “Only You.” And yet, it just might be Ringo’s best vocal performance on Goodnight Vienna, sounding downright seductive in spots. (Okay, trying to visualize it doesn’t help.) The flip side, “Call Me,” is more in line with what you’d expect from the Velvet Frog, a Starkey original cut from the same cloth as “Don’t Pass Me By.” It’s not an essential purchase since you can get both tracks (and more) with Goodnight Vienna, but I can’t seem to say “no” to that tantalizing Apple label (wrote the child of Eve). Tim Neely's 45 rpm Guide cites an alternate pressing of #1876 with the Goodnight Vienna nebula label in lieu of the apple.
