Even though Ringo warned fans and critics by stating that SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY was an album that he "made for his mum," few people expected the Beatles' drummer to release an album of schmaltzy pop standards from the 40's and 50's. While it takes a few moments to adjust to hearing the voice that sang "Yellow Submarine" and "With A Little Help From My Friends" tackle such songs as "Sentimental Journey" and "Bye, Bye Blackbird," Ringo's warm, engaging voice makes this album work. Featuring tasteful arrangements by Paul McCartney, Beatles producer George Martin and others, SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY is a friendly, laid-back pop album that has even gained some retrospective charm in light of the late-'90s resurgence of lounge music.
