Listeners of the great pop music radio show Pop Garden Radio know that Adam Waltemire has been working on this collection a long long time. And let it just be said that it was worth the wait. This is a phenomenal tribute to Rick Nelson, someone who kind of gets the short shrift in rock and roll history, but played a big part in it.
What I love about this record is the care the artists put into their versions. These sound excellent, well recorded, well produced, and it sounds great. It covers a wide swath of Nelson’s catalog, and truly gives meaning behind the title, Legacy, it is clear Rick Nelson did leave a mark in the music world.
With another Volume to come out shortly, it is exciting to think of all the great work that has been done on this that we have yet to hear. These 22 tracks offer a great selection and a great opening to this series. There is something for everyone here. And it’s only 10 bucks! Go for it, friends!
