Release date: September 22, 2017
1999 holiday release from the rock icon. Ringo Starr is the first Beatle to release a full-length Christmas album, and I Wanna Be a Santa Claus is very much in the group's spirit. The album is filled with holiday standards such as 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer', 'The Little Drummer Boy', 'Winter Wonderland', and 'White Christmas', alongside a half dozen Christmas originals. The album is produced by Ringo and collaborator Mark Hudson.
When the Beatles officially split in 1970, Ringo defied the odds and achieved the most commercial solo success of all four fabs during the first part of the '70s. While he was eventually eclipsed by his former bandmates midway through that decade, he has continued to release a series of albums that embrace his past while also carving out his own style that can only be called 'Ringo-esque'!
