4.0 out of 5 stars RICKY DOUBLE HEADER. 26 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a couple of LP's from 1964 and features James Burton as great as ever on the guitar. There is a blistering version of Chuck Berry's "Talkin' bout you" plus a good cover of the Charlie Rich number "A little bit sweet". One song is penned by Elvis Presley's bodyguard and "Stop, look and listen" is the same song that Elvis used in his 1966 movie "Spinout".
This double set is recommended highly if you like fairly gentle, melodic pop.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Every Rick Nelson Fan... 16 Oct 2005
By M. Houlding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Personally, any album every released by Rick Nelson derserves 5 stars in my opinion. I own them all and I consider him to be my favorite musician of all time. Compared to what's released today, these albums would be considered dull, bubblegum pop...I'm only 19 years old-and I love this music. If you're a real Ricky Nelson fan you'll want it, if you're just the casual listener I would recommend that you stick to the Greatest Hits album that was released by Capitol in 2002. Even if you're not really sure that you like it at first-give it another chance, I guarantee that you'll eventually love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Direction Begins To Wander 14 Mar 2001
By William A. Brimmer Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Having had both "The Very Thought Of You" and "Spotlight On Rick" on vinyl in the 60's I was happy to purchase this CD and recommend it to any Rick Nelson fan. The Very Thought Of You" contains some catchy tunes, particularly "I Wonder If Your Love Will Ever Belong To Me". But it is clear that the musical direction of Rick's career is at a pause. "Spotlight On Rick" has always been a favorite of mine and a lot of thought went into the song selection, and Rick sounds more energized and focused.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rick at his mid-60's best 10 Nov 2007
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The pairing of these 2 albums from 1964 is excellent. The songs and performances on both are strong throughout, with a wide variety of song styles. "The Very Thought of You" has Rick updating several standards from the 40's, including the title track, which was a top 30 hit in spring '64. The arrangement is similar to that of "For You" from a few months previous, but I like this tune better. "Love is the Sweetest Thing" is a Sammy Cahn tune that Rick updates for the 60's, a classic performance of a classic song. "My Old Flame" is another oldie that Rick gives a contemporary arrangement to. "You'll Never Fall in Love Again" sounds like it could be a 40's song, but it's not, it's just a wonderfully romantic love ballad, sung to perfection by Rick. There's also a Charlie Rich tune, "Just a Little Bit Sweet", that Rick sang on the "Ozzie and Harriet" show, and Mann & Weil's "I Don't Wanna Love You". There's less uptempo rock on this album than on Rick's earlier records. "I'll Get You Yet" is the one real rocker here. The emphasis is on highly melodic pop/rock - "I Wonder" being a good example, featuring one of Rick's most impressive vocal performances. "Spotlight on Rick" has a lot more fast songs than "Very Thought of You". Rick and the band tear through Chuck Berry's "I'm Talking About You" (love the way the bass guitar is mixed upfront), and "I'm a Fool", which should've had a single release - Dino, Desi & Billy had a hit with it later on, but Rick's version is by far the best. "Stop, Look, Listen" was recorded by Elvis Presley a couple years later for his movie "Spinout", but again, Rick's version is superior, thanks it part to a fantastic guitar solo by James Burton. "A Happy Guy" and "Just Relax" also benefit from assertive vocals by Rick and suitably tough band performances. The softer tunes include the reflective "Yesterday's Love", with a solitary acoustic guitar for accompaniment (re "Lonesome Town"); the shy guy's lament "Don't Breathe a Word", written by Sonny Curtis of the Crickets; "In My Dreams", with the memorable lyric "I hope the dream that you're dreamin' is the same dream that I'm dreamin' to"; and "From a Distance", a song to warm the heart of anyone in a long distance relationship. I was attracted to Rick's music early on, because he always seemed to be singing something I felt. He knew instintively what material was right for him, and had the best band in rock and roll to back him up. Ironically, by the time of "Spotlight on Rick", the spotlight was leaving Rick Nelson, as the British Invasion knocked most first generation rockers off the charts. I'm glad Ace has reissued these 2 albums to give fans a second chance to discover them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good singing, forgettable tunes 23 Jan 2000
By Henry R. Kujawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Rick Nelson has, I feel, one of the best singing voices I've ever heard, whether he's tackling rock, country, ballads or big-band standards. In THIS case, Ray Noble's "The Very Thought Of You" gets the same classy treatment as "For You" and "Fools Rush In" had earlier. However, on these 2 1964 albums, THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU and SPOTLIGHT ON RICK, most of the songs are forgettable-- even as you're listening! Exceptions being "Love Is The Sweetest Thing", Chuck Berry's "I'm Talking About You" (a more laid-back version than the one Rick did on the 1972 GARDEN PARTY album), "Don't Breathe A Word" and "Stop Look And Listen" (though I prefer the version of this one done by Mike Sheridan And The Nightriders-- but that's me!). Once again, for Rick completists (like me!); for anyone else, I'd recommend Decca/MCA's THE BEST OF RICK NELSON: 1963-75.

I purchased more of these to replace my vinyl records I have lost over the years, I put them on my flash drive and listen to them all in my car all the time. It came in excellent shape and reasonable time.
