Ringo Beat b/w I'm Fallin' In Love by Ella Fitzgerald - New Breed R&B Mod 45 on Verve Records #10340 Killer R&B Mod tune with an infectious beat that makes you want to move. It's hot! It's like no other Ella record I had ever heard. Yes this song is about Beatles drummer, Ringo Starr. Ella gives much love to Ringo's drumming ability. The star of this tune is Ringo Starr, but also mentioned are Gene Krupa, Elvis Presley's swinging hips, Chubby Checker's twisting and the influence and the effect of these four rock stars on youngsters.
