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 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 of 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 #1 record, “Poor Side Of Town”, came when, against the advice of the record company, he abruptly switched gears and began cutting ballads.
