From the '50s to the '70s - Rick(y) Nelson - Greatest Hits,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
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.
