Rick wrote "Don't Leave Me This Way" for the singer Lorrie Collins (The Collins Kids with her brother Larry), his first true love. It was released in 1958 : June, a Single, Side B (Side A : "Poor Little Fool"), and July, 45 RPM "Ricky Nelson, Volume Two" (track 2/4), and Album "Ricky Nelson" (track 8/12). All Rick's fans know their story, and I won't say anything more. In memory of the talented singer and guitarist Lorrie (Lawrencine May) Collins (May 7, 1942 - August 4, 2018). We miss you already, dear Lorrie !
