5.0 out of 5 stars Ricky Nelson Sings, Excellent But With Flaws!! December 17, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At long last a Ricky Nelson DVD of some of his performances from Ozzie and Harriet. For Baby Boomers a nice reminder of the early days of Rock & Roll and for younger viewers a chance to see some of Rick's great performances. Thus some of the problems! First song out of the gate is "Hello Mary Lou." A Rock Classic with one of the definitive guitar solos in Rock history. Except, they cut out the guitar solo. Saving 19 seconds! The next quibble is talking during the solo of "It's Late" and than on "You Tear Me Up" utilizing a version which doesn't even have James Burton but a fake guitarist hidden behind James Kirkland's Stand Up Bass. There are at least 3 versions of this song available with James playing. One last song complaint is "A Teenagers Romance" a song Rick hated when they could have used "Sweeter Than You" or "Just A Little Too Much."

The interviews are heartfelt by the Nelson Family, Kris Kristofferson and its great to see James Burton talking about Rick instead of Elvis. Playing with Rick was James best guitar solo years. The Three Part Singing by The Nelson Boys on Garden Party is GREAT! Another nice aspect is that all songs are complete before interviews come in. No talking over the songs. Refreshing!!

The bonus material with the Twins playing with James Burton on "It's Late and "Believe What You Say" is just awesome to see.

So yes, it would have been nice to have a few things corrected but this is for most Rock & Roll Golden Era/Rick Nelson fans a GREAT BUY!! Hopefully, in the future we will get some of Rick's great Rockabilly songs, "My Babe", "Milkcow Blues", "Good Rockin' Tonight", "Just A Little Too Much" "Down The Line" and more in another release.

ROCK ON RICK!!

Let me tell you.This is a great album.Ricky,sings most of his top 10 hits,and a few lesser known tracks...I am a fan of fifties music,and television shows...When i saw the dvd release for sale,i jumped at ordering it...I got to see the pre-release,and had seen the videos on pbs...I wish i had ordered the pbs version,as i would have had this dvd a few months ago.Both versions are identical!!!..The sound and video quality,could be a little better...and maybe,a fully restored release might be in the offering in the future...All in all 5 star rated...!!A must have for fifties music collectors.!!Enjoy!Thank you stewart L.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the "Best Of's" December 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I am a heavy metal fan, have no love for "teen idol" singers, and didn't grow up listening to Ricky Nelson, though I'm sure I caught a few Ozzie & Harriet episodes in syndication. I'm probably the last guy who should be raving about a Ricky Nelson Greatest Hits album, but I'm doing it just the same. I've developed an appreciation for 50's rock and rockabilly, and despite Nelson's "teen idol" status, he was a big part of that era's rock scene. Beyond having one of the absolute warmest and steadiest voices in rock, you have to admire the way Nelson took the wilder rock sounds of the era and brought them to mainstream America's living rooms. Admittedly his material was a lot "safer" than that of Gene Vincent or Buddy Holly, but I'd argue that a rockin' song like "Hello Mary Lou" comes pretty close.

There is no shortage of Ricky Nelson "Greatest Hits" packages out there (at least two dozen available on Amazon), but Capitol's 2005 compilation jumps straight to the head of the pack. In terms of sound quality, song selection, and price, you just can't beat this one. You get a whopping 25 songs, including hits like Travellin' Man, I'm Walkin, It's Late, and many more. There are so many great singles, I almost feel like I should list them all.

If you're a Ricky Nelson fan and have one of the earlier "hits" compilations, you may want to consider upgrading to this version. The difference in sound quality is very noticeable. If you're not a Nelson fan, but enjoy early rock & roll, I encourage you to give this disc a try. You might be surprised.

NOTE: The deluxe (translation: more expensive) version of this album that comes with a DVD featuring Ricky's musical performances on the Ozzie & Harriet Show. It's well worth the higher price tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful retrospective of early Ricky Nelson December 17, 2005
Format:DVD
The PBS station in St. Louis broadcast this documentary last night. I have been looking for a video/DVD of the Ricky Nelson song performances on 'Ozzie and Harriett' for some time and this documentary was worth the wait. I wasn't born until 1960, so I missed the era when these were performed - plus, the show has never been shown in syndication where I've lived. As a result, I'm seeing all of these for the first time.

There is a treasure trove of clips of Ricky's performances on the classic television show. It also features current interviews with all of Ricky's children who reflect fondly on their late father with great sincerity. It was also nice to have interviews with James Burton and Kris Kristofferson. The special ends with a great rendition of 'Garden Party' by the Nelson children. I plan on purchasing the DVD and look forward to the extra performances. Nice job!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best December 28, 2005
Format:DVD
Ricky Nelson was one of the all time greats in Rock & Roll history. A lot of folks don't remember him, and alot have forgotten what a big star he was. He sold lots of records, but his television singing was somewhat limited. His dad, Ozzie, refused Ed Sullivan's offer, and only allowed him to sing on The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet. Nevertheless, Ricky was a big star, and this collection showcases some great songs. He always had a great band behind him that featured Rock & Roll Hall of Famer James Burton himself.

Only buy this DVD if you like REAL rock & roll!

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty boring
I do not recommend this dvd because Ricky Nelson is pretty boring to watch as he sings all his songs the same boring way. It's like watching him do the same song over and over. Read more
