Forty years ago this week, Photograph by Ringo Starr entered the UK top 10 at its highest position of number 8, having entered the top 40 three weeks previously at number 26. After one week at its peak position, the song fell to number 10 for one last week in the top 10. It then spent another three weeks in the lower top 40 before leaving the chart for two weeks because only a top 30 was published. A further two weeks in the lower top 40 followed before the record left the chart for a final time.

Photograph was released on the Apple record label and was the third of four top 10 hits for Ringo Starr in the UK. It was taken from the gold-selling album Ringo, which peaked at number 7 in the UK album chart. The single was a US number 1.
