“Octopus’ Garden” Performed by The Beatles (1969)

The Beatles - Abbey Road

The Beatles – Octopus’ Garden (1969)

Released in 1969, “Abbey Road” was the last Beatles album to be recorded (But not the last to be released). “Rolling Stone” magazine named it the 14th greatest album of all time.

“OG” was Ringo’s solo vocal  contribution the this set. He wrote the lyrics and George Harrison helped him flesh out the melody.

I hope that you have enjoyed listening and reading some of the fine contributions that Richard Starkey made to The Beatles this past month.  So often his participation, in addition to his stellar beat keeping, are overlooked and we need to give him his due — don’t you agree?
