Ricky Nelson is so good on this CD entitled Greatest Love Songs that you'd swear these could be the only love songs in the universe! There wasn't a love song that Rick Nelson couldn't do better than almost all of them; and this CD proves it. Rick's voice never sounded better. The sound quality is rather good and I like the artwork, too.

"Never Be Anyone Else But You" has Ricky singing to celebrate the joys of finding his one true love; Ricky sings this with passion, heart and soul. "Never Be Anyone Else But You" makes a strong beginning for this album. "Poor Little Fool" is one of Rick's greatest hits ever; he sings and plays the guitar flawlessly and this makes me slightly jealous of his extraordinary talents! Rick sings this well and the backup chorus sounds very solid, too. "Lonesome Town" is a ballad about a place where the lonely hearts live; Rick never misses a note on this tender song about the pain when love doesn't work out the way people hoped it would

"Hello Mary Lou (Goodbye Heart)" is, of course, one of Rick's best known hits ever; and he bats this one straight out of the ballpark! Ricky sings this beyond perfection with great sensitivity; and the upbeat melody gets a lot of strength from some mighty fine guitar playing. "I Wanna Be Loved" gets a fine treatment from Rick who sings this very well; he handles the tempo and key changes effortlessly and this very early soft rock and roll tune sounds very good as Rick sings it.

"Unchained Melody" also gets a fine treatment that is changed just enough so that Rick can put his own stamp on this classic pop song; he sounds so good on this number. I really like "Unchained Melody.

This is a really Great CD, it shows the everlasting talented Rick Nelson at his very best. It takes us from the very young "Teenage Idol" to a man who put heart and soul into his music. The richness of his voice is like no other, and an old song like "Dream Lover" takes on a whole new personality and becomes Rick's. Thanks to his youngest son Sam for putting together all of these great songs on one CD. Would like to see another with all his romantic slow ballads...

This Cd was so great I told a friend on myspace and he asked if I could get him one. I love this I listen to it all the time.
The songs take me back to when I was a little girl and fell in love with Ricky Nelson.
Buy this it is worth it.

You have to be a certain age to remember all the songs on this CD. I used to listen to Ricky when he was on TV and I bought many of his records. This was very enjoyable to listen to.

It is such a pity that Rickey died at the age of 45. I remember hearing him singing on the radio when I was growing up and thinking how clear and melodic his voice sounded. After searching though Amazon.Com I decided that this CD would be worth purchasing as it contained most of his hits that I know. Do yourself a favour and buy this - it doesn't matter if you listen to R&B, C&W or Adult Pop - good music is good music!

I used to have this cd on vinyl, but have lost it over the years. Rick was my favorite singer when I was a teen and still is long after his sad death. I will purchase more. the cd arrived in excellent shape and in a reasonable time.

This is a wonderful collection of classic songs that lead you
through happy and sad emotions. Ricky Nelson sings to how
you are feeling, and he also journeys you to feelings you want to have.
