Songwriter and Musician James Clark (aka The James Clark Institute) and host Paul Romanuk continue their discussion about the 1973 Billboard #1 album Ringo. They talk about Side Two on this episode. The previous episode (S2 E15) digs into Side One.

Aside from talking about the great music on the album, we also talk about James Clark's music and how some of it has been influenced by his early days listening to The Beatles. We also talk a little about longtime Beatles roadie Mal Evans, who co-wrote a song (with George Harrison) for the album. There is also a long discussion about the artwork for the album. Here's a link to an article that details who is who on the elaborate cover. Also, we talked about some of Klaus Voorman's spectacular drawings for the booklet that came with original copies of the record - including this one for the Devil Woman track that set many a 12-year old boy's imagination racing in 1973.
