These albums originally released in 1967(Another Side of Rick.) and 1968 (Perspective) were much sought after for many years and now they are both available on one C.D. which is nice. The first thing you notice is how many of the songs on these albums were written by other music luminaries. Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, Paul Simon, Tim Hardin even Hoagy Carmichael all have songs on these two releases. The other striking point is, if you bother to read these things are the sleeve notes. These usually eulogise the subject to often nauseating effect , but the ones here are surprisingly critical , even suggesting that the style of music Rick Nelson adopted for these two albums didn't suit him and criticising his decision to use session musicians on Perspective, which is something Nelson himself agrees with so that's fair enough.
Now I'm not enough of a Rick Nelson Aficionado to argue the points one way or another, only to speak as I find with the material on this C.D. Nelson has an effortless way of gliding his vocals across a song, it all sounds extremely relaxed, even a little sanguine. The only time he sounds really animated is on "Georgia on my Mind" when he suddenly growls and yelps as if he's been stung by a jellyfish. Even a swinging New Orleans jazz arrangement on his version of "Daydream" fails to illicit much of a response but you know what, that's fine by me. It's quite pleasant and relaxing to listen to singer who doesn't have to resort to histrionics to sell a song. He gets quite soulful on "When the Sun's Shined it's Face on me", in an attempt to match the strident female backing but is quickly back to honeyed crooning on "Without her".

i approached this cd with some trepidation as i knew it wasn't normal rick nelson fare.as it happens i was pleasantly suprised."another side"is a cracking selection of tunes with "dream weaver" and "suzanne on a sunday morning" as standouts.the "perspective" album takes a bit longer to get used to and is more experimental but give them a try as rick never recorded like this again.

HASH(0x89280c0c) out of 5 stars Nelson's experimental phase 10 Dec. 1999
By burritobrother - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This cd contains two of Rick Nelson's late '60's albums, '67's "Another Side Of Rick" and '68's "Perspective". After his career had begun to flounder in the '60's Rick began experimenting with different styles, and here you'll find him doing contemporary folk-rock to decidedly mixed results. "Another Side" is the weaker album, with too many lame songs. He does do an excellent version of Tim Hardin's classic 'Reason To Believe', only to have it ruined by the most overdone production I can think of. 'Dream Weaver' and 'Suzanne On A Sunday Morning' work well, but his covers of 'Georgia On My Mind' and 'Daydream' are less than inspired. The best track on "Another Side" is the lovely, gentle song to his family, 'Promenadw In Green'. "Perspective", however, is great. Here Nelson finds the right songs for his voice, and the production is much more restrained. 'When The Sun's Shined It's Face On Me' is a great rock/r&b number that deserved to be a hit single. 'Without Her' is the Nilsson ballad, and Rick's is probably the finest version of it ever done. 'Three Day Eternity' is a superb Richie Havens song which Nelson interprets well. The Paul Simon number 'For Emily' is just ok, but his covers of Randy Newman material is just terrific. 'Love Story' in particular is a must-hear. Nelson's own 'Hello To The Wind' is a fascinating period piece as well. "Perspective" also boasts some well-used sound effects, which are mostly placed in his four- song Newman suite. Overall, this cd is a fine one. I would recommend it to '60's music fans as well as to Nelson fans (who actually might be the ones to dislike it as the albums are such a radical departure from the rest of his work). Rick Nelson was a sadly underrated talent, but hopefully with the reissues and the recent VH1 movie, he'll finally receive his just due.

HASH(0x89683e1c) out of 5 stars Rick's "experimental" albums 28 Jan. 2000
By Henry R. Kujawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rick's 1967 & 1968 albums, actually recorded back-to-back, were an odd departure from anything he'd ever done before, and a questionable move after the success of his 2 country albums just before. The sound is definitely "1967"; I'm reminded a bit of the sound of THE BIRDS, THE BEES & THE MONKEES. Whether simply caught in the mood of the times, or perhaps inspired to do something for his kids, this material didn't go over well with his fans at all. Yet there are nice moments: "Dream Weaver", "Marshmallow Skies", "Don't Make Promises", and "Promenade In Green", on which Rick sings "Tracy, come out to play." (His daughter would have been 3-1/2 when he did this...!) Much is forgettable, and there are even serious misfires, such as "Georgia On My Mind", on which Rick's usual classy covering of a standard is ruined halfway thru by John Boylan's bizarre arrangement. It's a pity Rick didn't stop at one such album, because the 2nd one, PERSPECTIVE, is a definite nosedive. There's a few nice songs, like "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today", but most of it is a clear case of Rick just going thru the motions and doing what the producer wanted without bringing anything of himself to the material. When he returned with a live album in 1969, things would definitely be back on track.

HASH(0x893ed030) out of 5 stars Not what you'd expect from Rick but deserves a listen 24 Dec. 2006
By T. Burton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Okay, this may not be what Rick's fans wanted to hear nor is it necessarily what he was comfortable doing. If given a chance, these two albums are really quite nice with only a few duds ("Georgia on my mind.")

I've enjoyed Rick's music since I found a used copy of Ricky Sings Again in a Goodwill store when I was a teenager in the 1970s. When this cd was released, I figured I would't waste the money considering the opinions I had heard of the albums.

I finally gave in and bought it and I'm glad I did. The songs are definitely a nice slice of late 1960's pop and whether or not Rick was comfortable with the material, it's great hearing him try some material that stretches his vocal ability. If you like Rick and a variety of musical styles, not just his rockabilly style, you may find yourself with a number of these songs stuck in your head.

From his growling vocals on "When the sun shined its face on me" to the falsetto on "Barefoot boy", Rick showed he had more vocal capability than he normally displayed when he did material of his choosing.

If you like Rick, give this cd a chance with an open mind. Play it a few times and you may find yourself enjoying it more than you thought you would.

HASH(0x893d07d4) out of 5 stars Lost in the late 60's 18 Nov. 2007
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These two albums have been next to impossible to find on vinyl, so thank goodness Ace put out this cd. They're far from Rick's best, though. Rick's rock/pop albums had sold poorly ever since the British Invasion of 1964 knocked him off the charts. His country albums didn't sell any better, so obviously someone (probably the record company, Decca) thought it was time for a change. They hooked him up with a young producer, John Boylan, who found some good songs for Rick to sing, and contributed a few of his own. Most of the songs are quite good, and Rick's vocals are fine, but the production is so "over the top", so dated sounding now (unlike Rick's best records). Particularly poor the second half of "Perspective", where Rick sings several Randy Newman songs. He doesn't even sound like himself, he sounds like he's trying to imitate Newman's distinctive vocal style. He does better with Nilsson's "Without Her", but most of the album if forgettable. "Another Side of Rick" is better, although the remakes of "Georgia on my Mind" and "Daydream" are weak. "Marshmallow Skies" sounds like faux psycadelia, but "Promenade in Green" is a nice, folky tune (listen for the part where he mentions his children, Tracy, Gunnar, and Matthew). Tim Hardin's "Don't Make Promises" and "Reason to Believe" are excellent songs, but the production is so overbearing - too bad Boylan didn't just let Rick do them with his band. "Suzanne on a Sunday Morning" is probably the best production on the album - too bad they didn't include it's single b-side, 'Moonshine". This cd is only for Nelson fanatics. Others would be better starting off with "Bright Lights and Country Music" or "Rick Nelson Sings 'For You'" among his Decca output.
