The finale of 1977 is here, and so ends a year of relative peace and reflection for John, Paul, George and Ringo. After a break-neck start to the 1970's and the pulse-pounding culmination of the 1976 Wings World Tour, the former Beatles (on the whole) took this year to take a moment...before trekking onward to the next horizon. Ringo Starr's horizons looked markedly different in the fall of 1977 as they had in years prior, with his Ringo the 4th record seeing a dismal critical and commercial reception that would take the wind out of the sails of most any artist on the receiving end. Of course Ringo Starr is not just any artist, and an undeterred Ringo set forth at once to record yet another new album...one that he hoped would course-correct his recent misfortune. And speaking of course-correcting...Paul McCartney. If there were any doubt that Macca's star was still shining brightly in the later half of 1977, November's Capitol/EMI Wings single release of Mull of Kintyre b/w Girl's School was enough to silence naysayers and stun audiences around the world - becoming the former Beatle's biggest hit single ever outside of his aforementioned alma matar!
