CD PICKS - MARCH 2019 Johnny Rivers – Not a Through Street (Beat Goes On)


Johnny Rivers (born John Ramistalla in 1942), grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he formed his first rock ’n’ roll group in High School. He moved to LA in 1960 and with the help of disc jockey Alan Freed, landed a record contract. His big break came in 1964, when he and his band secured a weekly residency at the newly opened Whiskey A Go Go Club On Sunset Strip (where I played with The Move in 1969 for five nights, meeting The Carpenters, Herb Alpert, The Doors, Graham Nash and Joni Mitchell).


Johnny Rivers’ debut album “Live At The Whiskey A Go Go” got to number 12 on the American Billboard charts. More hit albums followed and about 30 hit singles too, but no hits at all here in the UK. This album, Not A Through Street, was originally released in 1983 and is now available on this budget priced CD. It has very much a Christian gospel and soulful feel about it and includes Johnny Rivers’ distinctive interpretations of Sam Cooke’s A Change Is Gonna Come, The Four Tops’ Reach Out I’ll Be There, Ben E King’s Stand By Me and Junior Walker and the All Stars’ How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You.


Soul Classics – 60 Classics from the Legends of Music (Sony Music / Crimson)


Another in the series of great value, triple-CD, 60-track compilations and like those other releases, it’s great music for a long car journey. Top tracks on CD One include: Let’s Get Together by Al Green; Midnight Train To Georgia from Gladys Knight and the Pips; When Will I See You Again by The Three Degrees; Band Of Gold by Freda Payne; and I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash.


Best songs on CD Two include: Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing; The Pointer Sisters’ Fire; Lou Rawls’ You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine; Dionne Warwick’s Heartbreaker; and Phyllis Nelson’s Move Closer.

Soul selections on CD Three include: Love Really Hurts Without You by Billy Ocean; Too Much Too Little Too Late by Johnny Mathis and Denice Williams; If You Don’t Know Me By Now by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes; Piece Of My Heart by Erma Franklin; and Aretha Franklin’s version of Walk On By.


Jerry Lee Lewis –When Two Worlds Collide / Jerry Lee Lewis / Killer Country (Beat Goes On)


Jerry Lee Lewis was born in Ferriday, Louisiana in 1935. His career can be divided into two parts – in the fifties he was very much the wild man of rock ’n’ roll, with a string of classic hits including Great Balls Of Fire, Whole Lotta Shakin’ and High School Confidential, featuring his manic piano-pounding style. His career came to a grinding halt in 1959 though after it was discovered he had married his 13-year-old cousin. He struggled through the sixties, but from the seventies onwards built up a big following on the American country scene.


These three Jerry Lee Lewis country albums, together on a budget-priced double-CD, were originally released in the late seventies and early eighties. When Two Worlds Collide includes the title track (previously recorded by Roger Miller and Jim Reeves), Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues and old Al Johnson favourite Toot Toot Tootsie Goodbye.


Killer Country features Jerry Lee’s take on Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues and the Judy Garland classic Somewhere Over The Rainbow.


The Jerry Lee Lewis 10 track album from 1979 includes takes on Bob Dylan’s Rita May, Chris Kenner’s I Like It Like That and Charlie Rich’s Who Will The Next Fool Be.


80s Car Songs (Sony Music / DMG TV)


A great value, 60-track, triple-CD package of some great hit singles from the eighties. My personal favourites on CD 1 include: Down Under by Men At Work; Footloose by Kenny Loggins;


My CD 2 favourites include: Total Eclipse Of The Heart by Bonnie Tyler; Waiting For A Star To Fall by Boy Meets Girl; You Got It by Roy Orbison; We Built This City by Starship; and Keep On Loving You by REO Speedwagon.


My five faves of CD 3 are: Bill Withers’ Lovely Day; Chas & Dave’s Ain’t No Pleasing You; James Brown’s Living In America; Nick Kamen’s Each Time You Break My Heart; and the quirky The Safety Dance by Men Without Hats.
