1-CD-Album DigiPac (6-plated) with 36-page booklet, 33 tracks, playing time 71:17 minutes.
* A long overdue set that focuses on the rockin' side of teen idol Ricky Nelson.
* A family sit-com star, he could have sung anything, but he wanted to be Carl Perkins!
* Includes many of Ricky Nelson's biggest hits, such as Believe What You Say, Hello Mary Lou, Waitin' In School, and others!
Unlike most rock 'n' rollers, Ricky Nelson was already a star when he made his first record in 1957, but his records were so great that they became hits in Europe and elsewhere in the world where the sit-com wasn't shown. Ricky Nelson also assembled one of the all-time great rockabilly bands, including guitarist James Burton, and he scored hit after hit between 1957 and 1964. The most rockin' of those hits are here...together with rare LP tracks that show where Ricky Nelson's heart truly lay.
Ricky Nelson's career ended as it began it ... with rockabilly. This is the story of Ricky Nelson the rocker. And because it's on Bear Family, the sound is from freshly transferred first-generation tapes and it's mastered to the highest standards. Also look for rare and unpublished photos and a full-length essay.
