By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 24 Sept. 2002
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There is a long history of pop and rock singers recording country albums and country singers recording pop and rock albums. Some work well, some don't, but the two country albums of Rick's, paired on this twofer, are among the best.
At the time these recordings were made, a lot of country singers were restricted to doing so-called Nashvillr Sound records. Rick, being an outsider, was not restricted. He just recorded these albums for the sheer enjoyment of it - and it shows.
Most of these songs are covers, although Rick wrote three of the songs himself (Salty dog, Alone, You just can't quit). The covers are not necessarily better than the originals (sometimes they are) but they are distinctive. The sources range from mainstream country to cajun, yet they are all done in a traditional country style, but without those Nashville Sound strings.
An earlier reviewer claims that Lonesome whistle and Take these chains from my heart are hardly the most famous songs in the Hank Williams songbook. They may be less famous than (say) Jambalaya (which I'm sure Rick would have done brilliantly, had he recorded it) but Take these chains from my heart was a massive pop hit for Ray Charles and Lonesome whistle has been recorded by countless country singers over the years.
Following these two albums, country fans would have been happy to accept Rick as one of their own (just as they accepted Jerry Lee Lewis), but perhaps Rick didn't want to commit himself. Nobody knows, nor ever will, as Rick is long gone.
Enjoy this twofer - it not only shows Rick at his best, it also shows sixties country music at it's best.

Have always loved anything by Rick Nelson, grew up listening to all his music, so have now decided to collect a lot of his CDs. This one is a very good album, great sixties music never a disappointment. So will definitely be buying more in the future.

A double album on one disc by a sadly missed artist who never performed less than his best. I would gladly recommend any tracks by one wonderful artist.
