Former teen idol Rick Nelson was making some of the best music of his career in the early 70's, hard-driving country-rock that stands comfortably next to Michael Nesmith's in sound & quality. Only nobody was buying! Too bad... Excellent covers of Dylan's "Just Like A Woman" and the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman" round out a great collection of Nelson originals. "This Train" is one of my favorite "new" rock tunes, and perhaps the only song I've ever felt was just TOO SHORT! The album's finale is the incredible, powerful and eerily prophetic "Gypsy Pilot", on which Rick sings about life on the road. It ends with the sound of a plane crash. Isn't that just spooky?
This album is now also available as a "twofer" with the earlier "RICK SINGS NELSON", which is almost as good, and for real fans may be a better deal.

Here at last is a excellent introduction to the founder of LA Country Rock music. Combining his Top 40 hits "She belongs To Me" & "Garden Party" with to most, his unheard album cuts. Now at last such great songs as "Gypsy Pilot", "One Night Stand" and some great Dylan tunes, can be heard in one listening. Miss at your own peril.

Faced with the prospect of being an "oldies act" for the rest of his career, Rick Nelson did a radical shift away from good ol' rock 'n roll in the late Sixties/early Seventies and released several albums that typify the best of what's now known as "country rock." This collection and a subsequent "Volume 2" feature the cream of those albums, and they showcase a guy with great interpretive abilities (he arguably does the most definitive versions of Bob Dylan's songs this side of the Byrds), really good songs of his own and a crack ensemble backing him to the hilt. The Stone Canyon Band featured some the finest musicians in the business (the great Tom Brumley on pedal steel, past-Poco-and-future-Eagle Randy Meisner on bass, Allan Kemp doing lead guitar) and they and the others who came into the group at various points give Nelson's pleasant tenor a big push forward. Nelson holds his own at all times, whether he rocks out with "If You Gotta Go, Go Now," downshifts to gentle with "Lifestream" and "Anytime" or waxes sardonic with--what else--"Garden Party," still one of the best commentaries on the dangers of nostalgia. This showcases a fine artist who died all too soon, but he at least never ended up having to "drive a truck," as he puts it in "Garden Party."

Poor Rick. It breaks my heart that he never got the credit he deserved during his lifetime. This album is one of 4 that he released, with his Stone Canyon Band in the 1970's. (Rick Sings Nelson, Garden Party and Windfall are the other three.)

This was during the era that he was into country/rock....no...wait...he INVENTED country/rock. "Gypsy Pilot", the last track, is the hardest rocking song on this album and the plane crash sound at the end is, like everyone says, "eerily prophetic". For those old enough to remember: Rick Nelson was one of a kind. No other artist even comes close to what this man had.

Great songs by Dylan, Rick and others. Fantastic band. Some of the best pedal steel you'll ever hear. If you are longing for more of that early 70's country/rock, this CD is a must.
