Johnny Rivers Tries His Rhythm Here

David Griffiths, Record Mirror, 27 February 1965

AFTER EIGHT years in and out of show business, Johnny Rivers has finally struck gold – In USA. During the last year he's been packing them in at the Whiskey A Go Go (the first of several such clubs that have lately started in America, based on the European pattern but using live acts as well as discs) in Los Angeles and has organised his own package show which toured successfully with Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde, The Ventures, Ronnie And The Daytonas.
