Beatles Rarity Of The Week – “Everyday” (1998 Ringo Starr B-side)

Posted by on March 4, 2013 at 6:00 am.

Welcome to the Beatles Rarity of the Week. I think we are due for a Ringo rarity this week and I have rounded up an obscure extra from the sessions of his summer 1998 CD Vertical Man. I gave a good run down on the bonus material associated with this CD in an earlier BROW posted back in January 2011 (check that out here). One of the album’s charming little gems, a tune called “La De Da” (featuring Paul McCartney and Joe Walsh) was released as a vinyl and CD single with an equally nice b-side that was not included on the album called “Everyday.” The Japanese Vertical Man CD, on the other hand, does include it as a bonus track. Vertical Man was sort of a comeback CD for our former Beatles drummer and the first to follow The Beatles Anthology releases from 1995-96. Other than Paul and Joe, the album featured guest appearances by George Harrison, Ozzy Osbourne, Steven Tyler, Tom Petty, Brian Wilson, Timothy B. Schmidt, Alanis Morissette, and more.

“Everyday” features a nice mid tempo drum beat that is unmistakably played by our former Beatle drummer. It was written by Ringo, his producer Mark Hudson, Dean Grakal and Steve Dudas. His new band was christened The Roundheads and included Mark (bass, guitar and backing vocals) and Steve (bass and guitar) along with Jim Cox (organ) and Scott Gordon (percussion). So without further ado, here is Ringo Starr with “Everyday.”

    This is a great song. What a joyful way to start a weekend, especially when I spent the entire weekend sneezing and aching. This fun tune would have sounded great on Verticle Man.

    I know Ringo won’t receive the same massive reissue treatment the others get, but he has a solid set of rarities and hard-to-finds which would make for an excellent compilation.

    Thanks for the post. This one I’ll be coming back to.
