Ricky Nelson: The Ballads of Ricky Nelson

1-CD-Album Digipak (4-seitig) mit 36-seitigem Booklet, 30 Einzeltitel, Spieldauer ca. 72 Minuten.

30 unverzichtbare zwischen 1957 und 1962 für Verve und Imperial entstandene Aufnahmen. Eine vielseitige Zusammenstellung mit den Balladen von Ricky Nelson, bei der 16 bestens bekannte Hits neben weniger bekannten B-Seiten und LP-Titeln stehen. Poor Little Fool, Lonesome Town, A Teenager's Romance, Never Be Anyone Else But You, Young World und Teen Age Idol haben sich jeweils millionenfach verkauft. B-Seiten wie Have I Told You Lately That I Love You und Don't Leave Me This Way sind ebenso dabei wie Someday (You'll Want Me To Want You) - ebenfalls eine Hit-Single in Großbritannien - Half Breed, Unchained Melody, Honeycomb und Restless Kid, allesamt tolle LP-Auskopplungen. Das ausführliche 36-seitige Booklet auf dem CD-Album enthält gründliche Linernotes, seltene Fotos und eine präzise Diskografie von Ricky Nelson.

Als Ricky Nelson 1957 seine erste Vinyl-Schallplatte aufnahm, war er gerade mal sechzehn. Seine Coverversion von Fats Domino's I'm Walkin' verkaufte sich allerdings besser als das Original und legte den Grundstock für Ricky Nelson's einzigartige Karriere, die ihn neben Elvis zum größten Teenager-Idol der Fünfzigerjahre werden ließ.

Ricky Nelson war zwar hauptsächlich als Rocker bekannt; doch diese einzigartige zusammgestellte CD-Album präsentiert 30 seiner eingängigsten Balladen aus den Jahren 1957 bis 1962, darunter 16 seiner US-Hits (u.a. seinen ersten Nummer-Eins-Erfolg Poor Little Fool) neben einer sorgfältigen Auswahl an B-Seiten und LP-Auskopplungen.

Obwohl Ricky Nelson selbst ein gewaltiger Rock 'n' Roll-Star war, blieb er sein Leben lang ein Fan von Künstlern wie Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis und Elvis. Seine Vinyl-Schallplatten spiegelten diese Bewunderung wider und enthielten gelegentlich Coverversionen der Musik seiner Idole. Die besten Beispiele sind auf diesem zusammgestellten CD-Album zu finden.

'The Ballads of Ricky Nelson'  kommt im Digipak Album mit den bekannten Attributen einer Bear Family-Veröffentlichung: das 36-seitige Booklet enthält Fotos in Hülle und Fülle, einen Lebenslauf und eine vollständige Diskografie mit Einzelheiten zu den Sessions jeder einzelnen Aufnahme.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Nelson, Ricky"

Ricky Nelson

Geb. 8. 5. 1940 in Teaneck - New Jersey gest. 31. 12. 1985
Record Labels: Verve, Imperial, United Artists, Decca, MCA, Epic, Capitol
Erster Top Ten Hit: Teenager's Romance (1957)
Erster No. 1 Hit: Poor Little Fool (1958)

Ricky Nelson, der sich nach 1961 wieder Rick Nelson nannte, hat eine recht interessante Entwicklung vom Teenage-Rock `n` Roller zum Country Interpreten durchgemacht. Dabei darf nicht vergessen werden, dass seine Liebe schon immer der Country Music gegolten hatte und er ein großer Verehrer von Johnny Cash und Jim Reeves war. Dadurch hat er während seiner ganzen Karriere eigentlich nie ganz den Country Sound vernachlässigt und auch immer wieder Country L.P.s produziert.

Erinnert sei an Ricky Nelson's Top Ten Country Hit von 1958 „My Bucket`s Got A Hole In It“. Mit 16 Jahren hat Ricky Nelson seine erste Schallplatte eingespielt und schon ein Jahr später war er ein großer Star. Seine besten Jahre, so kann man heute rückblickend konstatieren, waren die Jahre zwischen 1957 und 1963. Als er später musikalisch gereift war und seine Musik weiterentwickeln wollte, litt er darunter, dass sein Publikum nur immer wieder die alten Hits von ihm hören wollte. Das Neue war kaum von Interesse. Bis zu seinem Tod hatte Ricky Nelson deshalb immer mit seinem Klischee vom Teenie-Bopper zu kämpfen. Am 31. 12. 1985 kam er bei einem Flugzeugunglück ums Leben.

 

RICKY NELSON  

The American Legend

 

Everybody knew what a rockabilly singer was: a tough young man (or, occasionally, girl) from a hardscrabble deep-South background. He'd picked cotton as a child, and learned to play a guitar he'd patched together from a cigar box, broomstick and window screen wire. He learned his first songs from black field hands, or perhaps the 'Grand Ole Opry'broadcasts from Nashville.

Then there was Ricky Nelson. Born in New Jersey to a veteran show business family, he was a national radio and television star before he first stepped up to a recording studio microphone, at the age of sixteen. Raised in Hollywood, he dated starlets.

But there was another side to young Ricky Nelson. He discovered country music on radio and television broadcasts, and the first record he bought was by his favorite singer and great inspiration, Carl Perkins, While he grew up surrounded by jazz musicians -- his father had been a nationally prominent bandleader -- he recorded most of his biggest hits with a band headed by two youngsters from Shreveport, Louisiana.

It all came together in a recording and performing career that lasted until his unanticipated death in an airplane crash on the way from one show to another -- ironically emulating many of his predecessors and contemporaries, notably Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J. P. 'The Big Bopper' Richardson.

A certain degree of Ricky (later, 'Rick') Nelson's success could be credited to his weekly television exposure. How, then, to explain his nineteen top-40 hits in England? "Over in England," fan Paul McCartney has explained, "we knew nothing about the Nelson [TV] show -- to us, he was the famous one in the family."

So how did this unprecedented and unduplicated combination of life and music occur? Elvis Presley was in the Army for a substantial portion of Ricky's Imperial years, but that's not only the sole answer, it isn't even the main answer. Lorrie Collins, of The Collins Kids, ventures that "he was serious, not a flash in the pan like some of the TV stars who made records. Rick had the talent and he had the longing; when you have that, the difference will shine through. And he had the best people in Hollywood back him up."

John Fogerty, who claims Nelson as an early influence, says the answer is simple: "Ricky's records had all of the best ingredients...great songs, great singing, great band -- did I say great guitar?

"He made some of the best records in rock and roll."

* * *

Today, when Americans refer to living an 'Ozzie and Harriet' kind of life, they're speaking of a kind of idealized family: happily married mother and father, two reasonably well-behaved children, and no problem that can't be eliminated with little more than a heart-to-heart conversation. It's become kind of a shorthand, a cliché, even among people too young to know who Ozzie and Harriet were.

In the 1950s, though, it seemed as though everybody in the United States knew Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, and their teenaged sons David and Ricky. The family could be seen every week for fourteen years in a popular television situation comedy; playing themselves and using their real names. The Nelsons' TV house was a near-accurate reproduction of the family's real-life home, and their next-door neighbor, 'Thorny' Thornberry (played by Don DeFore), was based on the Nelsons' real-life next-door neighbor, a fellow named Thornbury.

A popular joke of the day had it that nobody knew what Ozzie -- the TV character -- did for a living. As Ozzie Nelson points out in his autobiography, his seeming joblessness (he seemed to be always around the house, often in search of a dish of tutti-frutti ice cream) was a canard. "...We have always tried to keep the show honest...when we started on radio back in 1944, I was a bandleader both on the show and in real life, and if I were suddenly to become a plumber or an insurance salesman, it would simply not ring true...Our scenes were almost always played as if it were a Saturday or Sunday...I did occasionally go downtown to an office, but I never designated the kind of work that I did because by my not designating a specific job, people were able to identify with me more readily." Anybody who watched regularly would notice that Ozzie -- the character -- had a lot of musician friends, and that there were occasional musical interludes on the program.

From New Jersey To Hollywood

Oswald George 'Ozzie' Nelson -- the actor -- a graduate of Rutgers University in New Jersey, had led one of the more popular 'sweet' bands of the 1930s and early 1940s, with hits including About A Quarter To Nine, I'll Never Say 'Never Again' Again, At Long Last Love, and (it wasn't a commercial success, but is well-remembered as an example of the dry Nelson wit) I'm Looking For A Guy Who Plays Alto And Baritone And Doubles On A Clarinet And Wears A Size 37 Suit. Well, musicians loved it.

The Nelson band's girl singer was a pert Iowan named Peggy Lou Snyder, raised in a theatrical family and appearing professionally as Harriet Hilliard. She debuted with Ozzie's band in June, 1932; her brief marriage to comic Roy Sedley was annulled in 1933; and she and Ozzie married on October 8, 1935. Scouted by RKO films, Harriet left for Hollywood where she was featured -- as a last-minute substitute for Irene Dunne -- in the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers vehicle, 'Follow The Fleet.'Ozzie remained in New York City, where he was radio bandleader; first on a program headlined by comedian Joe Penner, then on Robert Ripley's 'Believe It Or Not.'

An advertising executive, aware of the Nelsons' chemistry as a couple as well as their talent, suggested that the two appear together on radio. There was one condition: he wanted the family (which by then included elder son David, born October 24, 1936) to relocate to Hollywood, where Harriet's film career (two more roles since 'Follow The Fleet') was keeping the couple separated. Ozzie wrote that he wasn't sure that he could support his band on radio salary alone. Record sales weren't terrific, and there were relatively few venues suitable for his band in Los Angeles, but the agency made an offer that persuaded the Nelsons to trek West, with a personal entourage and fourteen musicians in tow.
