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!!
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!
Thank goodness there is a present day interview with James Burton included on the DVD as well as a couple of songs he performs with the Nelson twins, but this is small consolation to those of us who love his guitar work on the old Rick Nelson originals!!
I would give this DVD an automatic 5 stars if not for this editing mistake on the part of the producers. Nevertheless it's a must-have for Nelson fans.
Only buy this DVD if you like REAL rock & roll!

I really enjoyed hearing about Ricky from his children. Some of the reviews were against it, but I thought it was a sweet and sentimental touch.Published 13 months ago by Charleen Callahan
My favorite singer when I was in high school. This DVD shows him singing 18 songs. Absolutely wonderful (he was so cute).Published 16 months ago by Sally F.
