Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Johnny Rivers - Meanwhile Back At The Whiskey A Go Go
|With lots of Johnny Rivers' material out on CD domestically, it seems strange to me that this Imperial album has remained in the can until now. This French release also includes three bonus tracks. Meanwhile Back At The Whiskey A Go Go is an infectious live album, full of folk based electric rock and roll produced by the legendary Lou "Folk Rock" Adler. Among the gems found on this disc are Rivers' hit The "Seventh Son," "Parchman Farm," Charlie Rich's "Break Up," the TV spy classic "Secret Agent Man," and a rousing performance of 0's "" re-titled "Un-Square Dance."|
Picks: Un-Square Dance
Track by Track Review
This is a short but rousing version of Chet Atkins' "Wildwood Flower," cut live with an immediate sound. At 45 seconds long, it's barely enough to get a-hold of, yet it shouldn't be any longer. Country guitar and sub-surf energy.
