Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Fortunately, I have some of these tracks on orignal 1950/1960s singles, so I can definitively say that Disc 1 of this gobbler contains re-recordings and NOT the original hits the artwork would have you believe. Even in the liner notes there is no admission that these are not the original hit recordings. The whole tone of the thing seems intended to make you think that these are originals. Disc 2 seems to contain original recordings - but not of his hits, just album tracks that history has all but forgotten.

The contents of the entire first disc are credited to being "produced by Jimmy Haskell" (whereas the original singles would have been produced by various people over a period of about 15 years or so - since the original hits spanned 1958 to about 1973).

Also, there is a cryptic note that says "originally released in 1985". It's hard to avoid the suspicion that this was intentionally put there to sucker buyers into believing that was a compilation release date, rather than the date of these (often lacklustre) re-recordings, otherwise why not say "these re-recordings made in 1985" - and why no mention of the fact in the liner notes. Also, the cover picture of Ricky as a teenager (rather than the age he was when these tracks were re-recorded in 1985) further reinforces the suspicion of an intent to deceive. There oughtha be a law against this kind of thing....

So, if you want to hear how well Rick(y) Nelson could perform his hits 20+ years after most of them charted - re-recordings made shortly before his untimely death in a plane crash on the very last day of 1985 - then this is for you. If you were looking for the original recordings then look elsewhere.

I am so going to try for a refund on this one!

Disc 1 of the hits are re-recording by Jimmie Haskell, if you want the originals look elsewhere, while Disc 2 has less well known songs at least it is original and has a early Rock n Roll charm.

The art work is false advertising, I feel for it twice but was told it was the correct art work the second time. Integrity was non-existent.

HASH(0x8c940768) out of 5 stars Ricky Nelson sings -- 16 July 2010
By Mary Wallis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a long-time fan of Rick Nelson, although not all of his songs interested me. His song "Garden Party" really hurts me because I understand his wish that he not be trapped with his old music. But there are some songs that are older, and which I really like--my favorite "Poor Little Fool." I watched his children on "People who care," and it was hard not to cry. He is a singer who, despite his wishes, brings back old memories. I truly miss him and give my love to his parents and children.
