Ricky had more than twenty hits in America but all the important ones are in this collection. Ricky's hottest period was from May 1957 to June 1959, during which time he scored many American top ten hits including several double-sided singles that yielded two top ten hits. Ricky was much less successful in the UK although it's not clear why as he didn't suffer from competition by British cover versions as (for example) the Drifters did. During this period, Ricky made the UK top ten with Poor little fool (an American number one hit), Someday and It's late, although Someday is omitted from this compilation. Ricky's American top ten hits from this period included I'm walking, Be-bop baby, Stood up and Believe what you say, all of which made the top five, as well as Never be anyone else but you, which may well be the most-covered of all Ricky's songs. Saying that, covers of Ricky's songs are far less common than covers of some of his contemporaries' songs, such as Buddy Holly or the Everly Brothers.

Following the double-sided American top ten hit, Just a little too much / Sweeter than you, Ricky's career went into a bit of a decline. All that changed in 1961 when he had another double-sided hit - the biggest of his career. On one side was Travelin' man, which gave him his second and last American number one hit, selling over six million copies. On the other side was Hello Mary Lou, written by Gene Pitney who (at the time) was known only as a songwriter. It was also an American top ten hit, but it made number two in the UK, where it became his biggest ever hit.
The revival in Ricky's career was short-lived. He scored two further American top five hits (Young world, Teenage idol) before changing record labels, when he also changed his name from Ricky to Rick.

Format: Audio CD
For a single album twenty track best-of this gives as good an overall view of Rick(y) Nelson as we're likely to get. It starts from his first single, a cover of Fats Domino's "I'm Walkin'", recorded after his father, a big name in television, had used some clout with the record label. Subsequently he switched to Imperial and the next track here, "Be Bop Baby" was his first track for them. Nelson's initial aims were to put on record something as good as the output from his early idol Carl Perkins. Arguably, "I believe what you say" was just that. It was the first of his singles to feature (stunning) lead guitar work from the new young axeman on the block, James Burton who was to go on to provide such a service to Nelson over many years and to feature on oodles of records of note for a wide range of artists - Dale Hawkins' "Susie Q" is just one great example.

From there on in we get the highlights of Ricky's period of success with Imperial, which period was terminated at least in part, by the "English Invasion". He made some classy stuff during this timeframe including excellent country rockers, "Hello Mary Lou" and "Just a little too much" plus smooth ballads like "Poor Little Fool" and "Never be anyone else but you". He didn't totally neglect rock'n'roll - "It's late" is a good example - but it gradually disappeared from the release schedule. If this is more what you're looking for, there is a good compilation of his more rocky sides out from Ace called "Rockin' with Ricky" which is well worth exploring.

A move to Decca in 1963 gave his career a brief shot in the arm - "For You" and "Fools rush in" temporarily arrested the downhill trend.

If you are a Ricky Nelson fan from way back or new to his music there are just too many CDs out there to choose from. You would have to buy a couple of CDs or a box set to get an overall picture. This collection however is one of the best, it is on the Capitol record label so I assume it was mastered from the original tapes. It covers a lot of his hits from his first US chart entry "I'm Walkin" (a cover of the Fats Domino song) to his 1972 Billboard Top 10 hit "Garden Party". The songs are in chronological order and there are 11 from the '50s, 8 from the '60s and 1 from the '70s. His records were enhanced by the guitar playing of James Burton and the voices of Elvis Presley's backing group The Jordanaires. The sound quality is great and in Mono and Stereo as you can hear from the samples available on this site. It is a great pity that all CDs do not have either a track listing or sampling on Amazon so that you can see and hear exactly what you are paying for.

Born 'Eric Hilliard Nelson' in 'Teneck' New Jersey' in 1940........as a teen he already had an interest in music and played both
the 'drums' and 'Clarinet'
His early influence was from his 'Rock-Hero' 'Carl Perkins' his break came by covering the 'Fats Domino' hit 'I'm Walking' in
1957 it charted in the American Chart peaking at '4' ,he was on his way, guess he was one of the early teen-idols with his good
looks and easy to listen too vocal ability.
He had over 30 U.S Top 40 entries, success in the U.K a little more modest, among his other chart successes here in the U.K
his first impact hit 'Poor Little Fool' (Chart '4' 1958) he then had a string of U,K Chart successes with songs such as 'Someday'
(Chart '9' 1958) 'Never Be Anyone Else But You' (Chart '14' 1958) 'Just A Little Too Much' (Chart '11' 1959) followed by one
or two lower order entries before hitting the U.K Charts again in 1961 with 'Travelling Man' (Chart '2' a number '1' hit in the U.S)
and the one he'll always be remembered for 'Hello Mary Lou' (Chart '2' again 1961) he continued to have chart successes both
sides of the Atlantic, this album focusing on his 1957-1961 recordings.
'Ricky' also co-starred in 'Rio Bravo' along with 'John Wayne' and 'Dean Martin' - 'The Wackiest Ship' with 'Jack Lemon' and in
'Love and Kisses' in 1965 with 'Jack Kelly' the most memorable of course his western with 'John Wayne' and 'Dean Martin' of
Sadly 'Ricky Nelson' was killed in a air-crash in Texas in December 1985 aged just 45.
Be cautious there are many inferior releases out there, this, a great reflection of his works.
