IMPERIAL RECORDS 1964                                          LP-9264

Johnny Rivers at the Whisky à Go Go is the debut album
from American rock and roll singer/songwriter/guitarist
Johnny Rivers. The album was released in February 1964,
just as The Beatles and the British music invasion was
getting into full swing. Rivers was asked to open the
legendary Whisky a Go Go nightclub in Los Angeles while
making this album. With the help of producer Lou Adler,
Johnny helped introduce the "Go Go sound" to rock and roll.
Whisky à Go Go would be the first of five albums
that Rivers would record live at the nightclub.
