Rick Nelson - Stay Young (1977)

From the Intakes record released on Epic records in 1977. I don't know how Rick could wax songs such as these without expressing any emotion :roll:

Sounds good to me. A singer doesn't have to shred his throat and have a stroke while he's singing. It's a gentle song and Rick does a beautiful job on it.

Yes, just because we are so used to hearing Elvis shrieking everything at full volume during his final years doesn't mean that a vocal can't be sincere when it's more subtle and restrained. The issue of course is that singing at such a loud volume can help to cover up a multitude of sins. While Nelson wasn't hitting a creative high in 1977, his voice was in great shape and the Intakes album is an enjoyable listen, even if it was never going to set the world on fire.
