Also, Bruce Spizer looks at the singles of the summer of ’71, Al Sussman revisits the musical events of 1976, John Firehammer evaluates John Lennon’s “Imagine” at 50 and talks with Richard Perry about producing “Ringo,” Belmo talks with Lennon’s paperboy, and Rip Rense offers a Ringo & George fantasy album. Plus, of course, we have the latest news (including the upcoming Ringo EP), and reviews of new recordings, books and TV programs, including “McCartney 3,2,1.”
