This edition of CEMA Special Markets' Back to Back Hits contains four songs apiece from Dion and Ricky Nelson. Two songs by each artist are genuine hits ("The Wanderer" and "Runaround Sue," "Hello Mary Lou" and "Travelin' Man," respectively), while the remaining two pairs are entertaining obscurities. Even though the collection is a pleasant listen, it doesn't serve much purpose, since most listeners will want to have full-fledged collections from both artists.
