Music Monday: Early 1970

Early 1970 was the B-side to Ringo Starr's 1971 hit single It Don't Come Easy, chronicling the end of the Beatles (they broke-up in 1970 with the official announcement of Paul McCartney and the release of McCartney's solo album McCartney). At that time, Ringo was the only one of the Fab Four still truly eager for the band to stay together and make music as a group. Being the least talented of the four, that would seem understandable, but was also perhaps just Ringo's easy going personality at work. And for a short while in the early 1970's, Ringo seemed the darkest of dark horses to achieve success as a solo act , with hit singles and a critical and popular success with his album Ringo.

1970 would see Paul, John and George release solo albums, showcasing their individual talents (particularly those of Lennon and Harrison) in a way a group effort might not have been able to accomplish.
