CD Reviews

A grown-up Nelson in his Prime!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Former teen idol Rick Nelson was making some of the best music of his career in the early 70's, hard-driving country-rock that stands comfortably next to Michael Nesmith's in sound & quality. Only nobody was buying! Too bad... Excellent covers of Dylan's "Just Like A Woman" and the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman" round out a great collection of Nelson originals. "This Train" is one of my favorite "new" rock tunes, and perhaps the only song I've ever felt was just TOO SHORT! The album's finale is the incredible, powerful and eerily prophetic "Gypsy Pilot", on which Rick sings about life on the road. It ends with the sound of a plane crash. Isn't that just spooky?This album is now also available as a "twofer" with the earlier "RICK SINGS NELSON", which is almost as good, and for real fans may be a better deal."
Excellent introduction to the founder of LA Country Rock.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here at last is a excellent introduction to the founder of LA Country Rock music. Combining his Top 40 hits "She belongs To Me" & "Garden Party" with to most, his unheard album cuts. Now at last such great songs as "Gypsy Pilot", "One Night Stand" and some great Dylan tunes, can be heard in one listening. Miss at your own peril."
If you like Poco, you'll love Rick and the SCB.

"Great songs by Dylan, Rick and others. Fantastic band. Some of the best pedal steel you'll ever hear. If you are longing for more of that early 70's country/rock, this CD is a must."
