At the time these recordings were made, a lot of country singers were restricted to doing so-called Nashvillr Sound records. Rick, being an outsider, was not restricted. He just recorded these albums for the sheer enjoyment of it - and it shows.
Most of these songs are covers, although Rick wrote three of the songs himself (Salty dog, Alone, You just can't quit). The covers are not necessarily better than the originals (sometimes they are) but they are distinctive. The sources range from mainstream country to cajun, yet they are all done in a traditional country style, but without those Nashville Sound strings.
An earlier reviewer claims that Lonesome whistle and Take these chains from my heart are hardly the most famous songs in the Hank Williams songbook. They may be less famous than (say) Jambalaya (which I'm sure Rick would have done brilliantly, had he recorded it) but Take these chains from my heart was a massive pop hit for Ray Charles and Lonesome whistle has been recorded by countless country singers over the years.
Following these two albums, country fans would have been happy to accept Rick as one of their own (just as they accepted Jerry Lee Lewis), but perhaps Rick didn't want to commit himself. Nobody knows, nor ever will, as Rick is long gone.
Enjoy this twofer - it not only shows Rick at his best, it also shows sixties country music at it's best. Then seek out one or more of Tracy Nelson's country album, Rhino's Jerry Lee Lewis anthology (All killer no filler), Buffy Sainte Marie's I'm gonna be a country girl again, and Nancy Sinatra's Country my way - all great examples of sixties country recorded by excellent singers who just visited the country (although Jerry Lee stayed for about ten years and Nancy recorded country songs on other albums).

Ricky is) and there response is wow, this is great, is this a new artist? No I say then tell them who it is. The music sounds very contemporary, I feel that this is due to the musicians in the band, James Burton was way ahead of his time, many current guitar players imitate his style. As well as Joe Osborne on bass, his track record is amazing!
I wrote the above after I had purchased this cd a few years ago. As time goes by and I have played this many times I have grown in appreciation for this cd with the 2 country lps Rick did. I have to say it grows on you more and more. I feel now that this effort by Rick Nelson is really a masterpiece and I am so glad he did it. The songs he chose to cover are gems and very well done and as one reviewer said rival the originals. Ricky Nelson really had a wonderful voice and put such emotion into his singing. I feel we are lucky to have this to listen to. If you have not purchased this for your collection you really will be happy if you do. If you are a fan of Classic Country you will love this. If you are a fan of Rick Nelson you will love this. If you are a fan of The Jordanaires you will love this. If you are a fan of James Burton and good country pickin' and steel slide guitar and dobro you will love this!
If your a fan of Ricks, new or old, you'll be more than glad you purchansed this CD. Rick never got the credit he deserves as most people thought he was handed his stardom from his dad through his appearance on the "Ozzie and Harriet Show", but you can tell he loved music and performing it and this CD is no exception!
Classic Burton solos on tele and dobro and Rick's vocals are in top form.
Talk about an inovator...take a listen to these landmark albums that foretold the coming of LA country rock music years before the Eagles, Ronstadt, Buffalo Springfield or anyone else.
If you want to hear a piece of history....grab this.
