Johnny Rivers' first two LPs – 1964's At the Whiskey-a-Go-Go and Here We A-Go-Go Again, both recorded at the famed Los Angeles club – are compiled on this set, a portrait of the singer at his mid-1960s peak. I first heard the latter of this compilation (Here We A-Go-Go Again) at a friends place back in 1969. His mom had the record and everytime I'd visit, she would let me blare the stereo as long as I'd have Johnny Rivers playing. Some years later I bought both albums for my own and still listen to them today although "Here We A-Go-GO Again" gets the nod. Johnnys crisp guitar and harmonica playing along with Jerry Rubins drums and Joe Osbournes bass gave this trio a great sound.

If you are a fan of Alice Cooper's first album "Pretties For You" you will love this. It consists of live versions of songs from that album plus a live version of "Nobody Likes Me", a song from the same period that has turned up in demo form on the "Old School" and "Life And Crimes…" box sets. The sound quality of the recording is great and highlights the band in all their early glory. In 1969 Alice Cooper was of course a band (not just a singer) and they hadn't yet met producer Bob Ezrin who transformed them into the Alice Cooper most people will know better - "I'm Eighteen", "School's Out", "Elected" and so on. Fans of the Ezrin-produced Alice Cooper group and of the singer's later solo work ("Welcome To My Nightmare", "Poison" and so on) should tread warily as this early music is very different - psychedelic and more than a little odd.
