Press Archive - Ricky Nelson - For You-Decca 1963-69 - Country Music
171 tracks - Bear Family 6xCD Box Set album — Jerry Fuller, Ellie BCD 16512 Greenwich, Hal David — but 6:52:49 perhaps producer Charles 'Bud' Dant (1907-1999), who was probably not too interested in rock'n'roll or country, was the wrong man for the job. More to the point, the musical values of the previous decade had been forgotten as Motown and Phil Spector kicked the rockers into touch and even Elvis seemed to have lost the plot. New names like The Beach Boys and The Four Seasons were in the charts. and Nelson was just one of many US acts feeling the pinch. The first 1964 album, Rick Nelson Sings For You', was a slight improvement, as it included a US Top 20 single. a revival of the Glenn Miller hit, Fools Rush In, and a US Top 10 single in For You (a revival of a 1933 recording by Glen Gray & His Casa Loma Orchestra), while the album itself also went Top 20. but was Nelson's last chart album for six years, as British Beat, psychedelic, etc., eliminated the vast majority of earlier stars.
