Rick Nelson - The Christmas Song

Appropriately, Rick, still Ricky then, sang this song 51 years ago today - December 19th, 19 and 56 - in an episode of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, "Busy Christmas."

You can pick up that episode and a companion Christmas episode on DVD at Amazon. Also featured in the clip is a very young Tracy Nelson, Rick's daughter.

Although feeling he was a bit too polished and slick, Dylan mentions Nelson with obvious respect and admiration in Chronicles: Volume One, and has played his Waiting in School in Season 1, as well as his version of Hello, Mary Lou in the first show of Season 2. We first mentioned Rick at Dreamtime in Episode 13 - where we played his Travelin' Man, as well as his on- and off-air relationship with Lorrie Collins in Episode 41, And the Angels Sing.
