Ringo Starr's fourth solo album GOODNIGHT VIENNA was released in USA on November 18, 1974. The album title has double sense. On the Liverpool slang it designates a phrase "Let's get outta here".

On the front cover is a still from the 1951 science-fiction film "The Day the Earth Stood Still" [see Pic. 1, 2] with Ringo's head superimposed over the head of Michael Rennie.

On the labels two song titles are listed not in full:

ПРИМЕЧАНИЕ:

Четвёртый по счёту сольный альбом Ринго Старра GOODNIGHT VIENNA вышел в США 18 ноября 1974 года. Дословно его название переводится на русский язык как "Спокойной ночи, Вена". Однако, на самом деле, в названии альбома скрывается жаргонное ливерпульское выражение типа "Пора сваливать отсюда".

На лицевую сторону обложки пластинки был помещён монтаж, составленный на основе кадра из научно-фантастического фильма The Day the Earth Stood Still ("День, когда Земля остановилась") 1951 года [см. Рис. 1, 2], на котором робот Горт и инопланетянин Rlaatu (с головой Ринго вместо актёра Майкла Рэнни) выходят из летающей тарелки.

На этикетках названия двух песен указаны не полностью:
