The album contained Ricky Nelson's first composition, "Don't Leave Me This Way", and a track written by his lead guitarist James Burton along with bass player James Kirkland called "There Goes My Baby". The album also included a cover of Fats Domino's "I'm in Love Again", along with a cover of Roy Orbison's "Down the Line". Also included were covers of then-recent hits and older songs updated for his style. The Jordanaires provide backing vocals.
A review by Allmusic said that Ricky Nelson "remained a slavish imitator of the Sun Records rockabilly style on his sophomore long-player, but he had improved enormously in the endeavor", and gave the album a positive rating.
