Fine tribute to Ricky Nelson
18 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very rarely seen concert featuring one of the last performances by Rick Nelson and his band before the dreadful air crash which deprived the world of one of the last great superstar performers. Rick thankfully is in fine voice and seems in a great mood while he performs some of his legendary hits. The band is comprised of some of Nahville's finest musicians,the only part I disliked was Fats Domino, although the duet on Rick's first recording of I'm WAlking was a monumental moment to treasure. I also saw Rick in concert two months before he died and can attest he was finally going back to his earlier roots of rock n roll, and it is sad not enough people could see the return of such a great artist.
