R ingo’s finest moment, “You’re Sixteen” is pure unadulterated joy. From Nicky Hopkins’ golden ivory-tinkling to Paul McCartney’s silly “mouth sax solo,” the song plays out like a three-minute party. For the duration of this song anyway, Ringo really is the greatest. The flip side is the heaviest track from the Ringo album, plenty of thumping drums and a second melody introduced by the horn section that shows the influence of Frank Zappa. Both songs as they’re presented here are identical to the original album tracks.
