I like almost any song he sings , especially ''Slow dancin'',,''Poor side of town'' and Swaying to the music.
I do like the fact that you can understand the lyrics, which you can with most of the stuff they call \
music now

I have a 45 by him on the Dee Dee label from 1959 titled "Your First and Last Love". It's a nice doowoppy ballad and didnt chart, but I think it's quite good. Check it out on You Tube

Yep, I like Johnny Rivers, he has a recognizable sound and it swings, like the "Rockin Pneumonia and the Boogy Woogy Flu", High on a Mountain of Love", to mention a few more. "Seventh Son" is another.

I liked all of his records. I think "Summer Rain" would be my fav.
He would be 78 now.

"Summer Rain" was always a favorite. I also liked his version of "The tracks of my tears", the Smokey Robinson classic.

And don't forget "Secret Agent Man" with the twangy guitar part. That may have been part of his sound. "The Poor Side of Town" has a great twangy guitar hook in it, excellent arrangement and backup, flute and singers.
