An extensive compilation of musical performances from his various TV shows. This DVD is a compilation of songs from Nelson's various TV shows in which he sang the relevant hit. Whilst dating with a girl who swooned over an Elvis song playing on the radio, Ricky Nelson, star of the hit TV show 'Ozzie & Harriet' decided to go into a recording studio, and did his own cover of Fats Domino's 'I'm Walkin' which was aired on the show and a career in music was launched as 'I'm Walkin' went to #2 on the Billboard Chart. Through the novel power of television, Ricky Nelson became one of the first artists that audiences saw and heard simultaneously. He would perform a song at the end of every show. Rock n' Roll was considered salacious and scandalous in the mainstream 50's, and weekly the 'nice Nelson boy' smuggled it into living rooms and made it acceptable to parents. Consequently teenagers had far greater access to Rock n' Roll than they ever would have had, arguably Ricky Nelson's most important contribution to music.
