Johnny Rivers - At The Whisky Á Go Go & Here We Á Go Go Again!




Johnny Rivers - At The Whisky Á Go Go &  Here We Á Go Go Again!

Recorded live in Hollywood, California's Whisky a Go Go this 22 year old boy from Baton Rouge wows the crowd with a fun selection of material. His clean guitar sound and vocal style carried each song along and coaxed you to join the throng on the dance floor for a quick wiggle or two. And you can tell it's Hollywood by the celebrity endorsements gracing the back cover. These include blurbs from the likes of Steve Allen, Ann Margret, Yogi Bear ("Johnny is my BoBo"), Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean just to drop a few names. Sammy brands him a swinger and I have to agree. The sound was just made for swiveling hips and alcoholic sips. A few cover photos of Johnny, the club and the crowd try bring you a little closer to being there. 

Line Up:

Johnny Rivers: guitar and vocals
Joe Osborne: bass 
Eddie Rubin: drums







Here We à Go Go Again! was Johnny Rivers's second official album, and like his first album, At the Whisky à Go Go, it was recorded live at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, California. The album reached #38 on the Billboard Charts and spawned two hit singles: "Maybelline" and "Midnight Special".
