For me these two albums represent the high point of Rick's Imperial career. More mature than his previous two albums and less mainstream pop than the next couple Rick delivers some tight rockabilly ably supported by James Burton and the rest of his band. The hits such as Lonesome Town and Never be Anyone Else are obvious highlights but there are several other gems such as Be True to You, Blood From a Stone, One minute to One and You tear Me Up. James Burton plays some outstanding solos and it is on these tracks that his reputation was firmly establised. There are also some alternative takes and outtakes (though why the studio as opposed to film version of Cindy is omitted defies belief) but the meat of this release is the two original albums. Strong songs, well arranged and performed and well above average for the era.
