Rick's career was at a low ebb in 1965. His hit-making days wee over (although he eventually made a mini-comeback in the seventies with Garden party) and he was looking for a new direction in his career. The two albums presented here mostly contain covers - a mix of contemporary pop, old standards and country songs, the latter providing a pointer to the two country albums that came later in the sixties - though there were a few originals including the minor American hit, Mean old world. The writer of the liner notes is somewhat lukewarm about the music contained herein, but even he accepts that there are some great tracks here. Maybe I am more easily satisfied, but I like these albums.
.
Among the covers are You don't know me (Eddy Arnold), Lonely corner, Liz (both Johnny Burnette), I know a place (Petula Clark), Since I don't have you (Skyliners), My blue heaven (an oldie from 1927), I catch myself crying (Roger Miller) and Try to remember (Nana Mouskouri). Of these, Rick does particularly well on Since I don't have you. Three of the original songs featured in a movie (Love and kisses), these being the title theme, Come out dancing and Say you love me.
While Rick's music was largely ignored in a year when British acts (especially the Beatles) dominated the world's airwaves, these albums are much better than some people (including the liner notes writer) would have you believe. This isn't the place to begin a collection of Rick's music but his fans will enjoy this twofer.
