We say happy # 74 to Johnny Rivers. He was born John Henry Ramistella in New York City.
Rivers recorded a very popular live album with covers of “Memphis” (Chuck Berry), “Mountain of Love” & “The Seventh Son”. It was great dancing music.
After that, he had a string of great songs like “Secret agent man”, “Poor side of town” and “Summer rain”.
In the 1970′s he came back to the charts with “Rockin’ Pneumonia and Boogie Woogie Flu”.
His songs always bring a memory of this or that. I would recommend that you add his anthology to your collection:
