A pretty depressin' affair, Ringo's Rotogravure is full o' forced fun and inebriated ineptitude from a host o' guest musicians who should be ashamed o' themselves for their lackluster contributions. T' Cap'n Johnny Lennon shanty "Cookin", arrr, may be t' lamest thin' he ever did in his career.
The saving grace of this album was the clever center spread in which various members of Ringo's posse were photographed eating. Harry is posing like a statue, holding a bunch of grapes in a...strategic place, shall we say... If the album had been half as clever as the center spread, Rotogravure would have been a winner. As it turned out, Ringo's first post-Apple album was a huge failure on every level.
