    Richie certainly looks unhappy here. This is either right before he left the group or right after he came back. LOL!

    Ringo generally never looked too happy. He was working and concentrating here not posing for a photographer to look all happy and cuddly. People think that you have to smile all the time and if you don’t then you’re miserable. Another trapping of stardom. We are lucky he allowed us to let himself be photographed at all. He kidded about his unsmiling face in the Beatles tourbooks where they mentioned the was was currently in the process of teaching himself to smile. If you look at Beatles recording sesions between 1962-1969 there are many photos of them not smiling. They were working. If they smiled for every photo it would have been phoney. How many people here would smile for every photo taken of them at work over a 7 year period?

    Check out the infamous EMI “tea towels” that made Ringo’s drums sound muffled. His high-hat is also miked very closely…innovative and now often copied.

    Judging by clothes, hair length and facial hair this could possibly be 28th July 1969, Studio Two, although it could also well be Studio Three. It’s the same clothes as the “Mad Day Out” photographic session.

    i’ll say ” white album ” sessions. he’s using his old drum kit, not the ludwig ” hollywood ” kit he used in ’69. or i could be wrong. love, a friend.

    Ringo wore a yellow shirt for that photography session.

    As far as my info goes about the picture I scanned, this was taken during the White Album sessions, stusdio Two.
    The day they call Mad day out, they were not in Abbey Road studios.
