The Ringles – “Take a Ride” (Jam Records)

Ringlestake_a_ride “Revolver” by the Beatles has been mined by many a pretender in the past but The Ringles are able to take the best influences from that album and the rest of ’66-’67-era British pop-psych and claim it as their own. “Take a Ride” is a fabulous record that will invite repeated listenings so meticulous is the production and songcraft. Right from the opening track “Take a Ride” I was hooked and from then on in I was amply rewarded with some fantastic rock and roll. Another great release from Jam Records and highly recommended. You can sample some of the album on their “Take a Ride” spotlight page at Jam Records. Wonderful.
