Bad Boy is the seventh studio album by British drummer and singer-songwriter Ringo Starr, originally released in April 1978 via Polydor Records in the UK and Private Music in the US.

For this album Ringo Starr once again teamed up with his friend and then songwriting partner Vini Poncia to record the album. The material was recorded in Canada and The Bahamas with a core set of musicians playing on the album comprising Apple Records artist Lon Van Eaton (guitars), Jimmy Webb (guitars), Dr. John (keyboards), Dee Murray (bass) and Vini Poncia (backing vocals). James Newton Howard contributed string arrangements.

The album failed to make a big impact on the music charts reaching #129 on the US Billboard 200, #98 in Australia and sadly failed to chart in his home country UK. As a consequence of a lack of chart success, Ringo was dropped from his recording contract with Polydor Records in the UK.

However, it has since been considered one of his hippest works since the classic “Ringo” album from 1973. For his fans, Bad Boy would become one of Ringo Starr’s most loved ventures and one of the finer rock recordings of 1978. Featuring the singles “Heart On My Sleeve” and “Lipstick Traces (On A Cigarette)”, the Bad Boy album was also featured in his 1978 TV special “Ringo”. The album also includes other great tracks such as “Who Needs A Heart”, “Tonight” and "Old Time Relovin’”.

Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood, CA, this amazing album also gets its first time 180 Gram Audiophile coloured vinyl release, pressed at RTI.

Check out the tracks:  Heart on my Sleeve”; “Lipstick Traces (On A Cigarette)”; “Bad Boy”; and “A Man Like Me”.

This limited edition LP record is a 2017 reissue on 180 gram audiophile champagne coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a 12”x12” photograph insert, and remastered audio, pressed in the US.
