Dissapointing Remakes; Misleading Packaging
(2 out of 5 stars)
"Shortly before his plane crash, Rick Nelson went into the studio and recorded this album of remakes of many of his best songs. It's become a fad for artists to do remakes of their own work, but I've never been more disappointed with such work as I was here. Not one of the songs is anywhere near as good as the original versions (and "Garden Party" was pretty lame to begin with!) It's hard for me to understand, as anyone who's heard the LIVE 1983-1985 album can attest he brought MORE power to his oldies as the years went by, not less-- as here.But the worst thing is that, apart from the cover photo, NOTHING on the outside packaging hints that these are anything other than the "original" recordings. For SHAME, Curb Records!!!"

"I was under the impression that I was getting the original releases( Best of Ricky Nelson ). Instead it was a recut that didn't have the same sound and range in his voice. He sounds dull and lifeless when compared to the original releases. Very disappointing. He sounds like he is on drugs. Do you have a CD of his original releases?"
Label is EXTREMELY misleading

"Rerecording of orignals - CURB doesn't say anywhere on the outside of package. Rick sounds tired and just wants to get it over with. bad business for CURB label."
