This is the ultimate single disc collection that includes Ricky's three #1 single's 'Travelin' Man', 'Poor Little Man' and 'Garden Party'. Ricky was America's first teen idol and was the star of the Ozzie & Harriet show. Capitol. 2005.

Although the differences between this 2005 Capitol GREATEST HITS collection and its 2002 counterpart may seem slight (the two sets do share many of the same tracks), the former is credited to the singer's teen-idol name, Ricky Nelson, while the latter uses the more adult moniker of Rick Nelson. Consequently, the 2005 compilation features more of charming actor/vocalist's early work, focusing on material from the late 1950s and early '60s. During this time, Nelson moved from light rockabilly ("Stood Up" and "Believe What You Say") to winsome ballads ("Poor Little Fool" and "Lonesome Town"), revealing a talent that went deeper than his manicured TV persona. Though both Capitol GREATEST HITS discs are excellent, this is the one for fans seeking more of Nelson's initial recordings.
