4.0 out of 5 stars Whiskey a Go Go June 29 2003
By LL
Format:Audio CD
I love Johnny Rivers, I was at the club back in the sixites when he performed many of these hits. The first half of the CD I thought was great. It brought back so many memories of the music that night when it was live. Towards the end of the Cd I didn't care for some of the songs. But in all I still think it's a good CD of his music to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars An album you'll have fun listening to May 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have had this on a record album for sooo long it will be fantastic to get it on a CD. His Memphis hit is well known, as well as Brown-Eyed Handsome Man and Lawdy Miss Clawdy. His music sparkles and the beat will get you moving. It Wouldn't Happy With Me had better get you laughing. Whether you enjoy rock, folk, country or pop, his enthusiasm and humor will grab hold of you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Live Rivers Rocks.... Aug. 10 2000
Format:Audio CD
I'm not usually a fan of live rock performances, but Rivers club performances are much more fun and infectious than massive stadium concerts. There's not much here in the way original material. However, Johnny's treatments of Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, and even Beatles standards are a great listen!

3.0 out of 5 stars A little goes a long way........... March 3 2000
By ttsxii
Format:Audio CD
As much as I like Johnny Rivers, (and I am a big fan), this is way too monotonous. This 2 fer was recorded before he hit his stride with "...AND I KNOW YOU WANNA DANCE" (which is still not out on CD! ). Of course the advantages of CD players is that most are programmable. This might be great for a party but it's too much of the same thing if you're listening to it on a long drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two great live albums on one terrific disk! Nov. 18 2011
By J. Bynum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Johnny Rivers/ Totally Live at the Whisky A Go Go: Johnny Rivers does his interpretation of the best early rock n roll songs and does them very very well. There is a ton of energy here and, for 1964, the recording of these performances was top notch. This is just a flat out great live performance. Highly Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go, J.R.! Nov. 7 2004
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a reissue of Johnny Rivers' first and second albums (At the Whiskey a Go Go and Here We a Go Go Again!). Both albums were recorded live at the Whiskey a Go Go, where Johnny and his sidemen were the "house band" at the time. Johnny Rivers may not have been the most original rocker around, but he played with an infecious enthusiasm that was quite enjoyable. It should be pointed out that all but two of the songs here are cover versions of other people's material. The two original songs here are Johnny's composition "John Lee Hooker" (mistitled "Whiskey a Go Go"), and "Walk Myself on Home" which was written by his bass player and his drummer. Although Johnny's cover versions are almost never as good as the original performers versions, the songs still have a fun, intimate, small club feel to them. Don't go looking for much originality in this CD, but if you are a fan of Johnny Rivers, you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I knew all the songs before I bought it Jan. 18 2014

...so really...how could I not love it. At 58 years old...in 2014...I used to think the teenagers who listened to this music were the coolest. And really...they were. Some went off to Vietnam. I was too young.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the music I grew up with June 5 2013
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is one of the very first albums I purchased on my own account. I think this is a seminal work among all rock 'n roll. The songs are great, well paced, and with that unmistakable beat. Having the second disc included just adds to the experience. Still resonates after all these years.
