In 1964, when the British Invasion was in progress and American rockers were tough to find on the U.S. pop charts, Johnny Rivers was one of the first to regain a foothold; his first Top 10 record came right in the midst of Beatlemania. His formula was much the same as the British style vintage American rock n' roll and R&B played with a verve and simplicity that gave his music a contemporary edge. Over the next four years his funky, go-go rock gave him a steady stream of Top 10 records. His first No. 1 record came when, against the advice of the record company, he abruptly switched gears and began cutting ballads. All of his popular hits including "Memphis," "Mountain of Love," "Seventh Son," "Secret Agent Man," "Poor Side of Town," "Baby I Need Your Lovin'" and "Summer Rain" are collected on The Best of Johnny Rivers, a 1987 CD-only compilation that is offered on vinyl (180g LP) for the first time mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios.
