I loved Ricky Nelson when he was younger and had sometimes seen his CDs in the store and thought about buying one. But my teen-age daughter, knowing I had been a Nelson fan, finally bought me a Rick CD for my birthday (The Best of Ricky Nelson) I played it so much, I realized I needed another Nelson CD. I read the reviews here (see, John Clemons, you were wrong about no one reading your review) and bought this one. I can't believe the passion of the older Ricky on these songs. I am now playing this one over and over.
