Rick Nelson Greatest Hits is wonderful. I love it. It takes me back to watching The Ozzie and Harriet Program when I was young. That is when Rick Nelson and his beautiful voice and songs became so popular. One person found this helpful. Rick Nelson was great. I really enjoyed listening to it. It reminded me of the good old days when the music was a lot better than some of it today.
But they're not. Read full description.
Great Album, Tepid Reception: My Theory. By 1969, Rick Nelson was already very famous. In the 1950s and early 1960s, Rick was known as Ricky to his future Troubadour audience, legions of TV-obsessed Baby Boomer children. Rick Nelson and The Stone Canyon Band in 1970. Farthest right is 23-year-old future Eagle Randy Meisner, looking so young I almost feel wrong swooning over him. CD booklet photo by Jill Valentino (2016). Unfortunately, also obvious was the audience’s preference for Nelson’s Ozzie and Harriet-era hits to the newer, more modern songs he played. Personally, I didn’t get why. To my ears, Nelson’s late 1960s-early 1970s songs are profoundly superior to his 1950s-early 1960s teen idol bubblegum fare!
