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.

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!

I have long wondered why there was no DVD collection available of Rick Nelson's musical appearances on the old Ozzie and Harriet show when ,low and behold, all of a sudden there is one!! I ordered it as soon as I saw a promotion for it on 'Entertainment Tonight'. It features all of my favorite Nelson songs and is a great nostalgic trip back to the 'good ol' days' of hearing Ricky sing at the end of each TV show. I have only ONE criticism of the collection ,......WHY on earth did they edit out James Burton's tremendous guitar solos on many songs, either in part or sometimes in their entirety!!?? Espescially on songs with such memorable solos as on Hello Mary Lou!! The guitar solo is an important and integral part of that song , and it's edited out!!

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.

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!

I just finished watching this DVD for the third time. It was great!!! However....while watching it for the third time, I REALLY got tired of watching his kids. It was good to hear all of their stories and to let them "vent" their feelings, but after a while I got the feeling that they had as much film time as their father, and I didn't purchase this to see them. Their interviews might have been better as the bonus extras, or maybe not as long. Even with this as a negative, it did my heart good to watch Ricky. Oh, how I've missed him. 5 stars for the amazing talent of Ricky Nelson.
