Synopsis

Album Description
When Johnny recorded this tribute to Sun Records back in 1991, he did it right--he recorded the album inside those hallowed studio walls with special guests Carl Perkins and James Burton! Guess that's why Sam Phillips consented to pen liner notes, something he basically has never done for anybody, and which we've preserved here along with our new notes. Includes `Mystery Train'; `Tryin' to Get to You'; `That's Alright Mama'; `I Forgot to Remember to Forget'; `Boppin' the Blues'; `Honey Don't'; `Big River'; `Matchbox'; `You Win Again'; `Breakup'; `Little Queenie'; `Memphis'; `Why Can't We Communicate'; `If You Don't Want My Love'; `Mountain of Love'; `Tearin' the Drive-In Down'; `Poor Side of Town'; `Trying to Live My Life without You'; `Shelter in the Storm', and `Uphill Peace of Mind'.

CD Reviews

Johnny Rivers does rockabilly...
T. Sezen | Oakley, CA USA | 11/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Johnny Rivers is one of the most underrated rock pioneers. This album is Johnny's tribute to rockabilly by recordings that made Sun studios so famous. He plays and sings them close to the originals. If you are new to Johnny Rivers you might do better with his anthology or greatest hits compilation. Otherwise, if you love rockabilly and Johnny Rivers this is a great addition to a collection."

"There is a difference between trying to sound like the origionals and putting your own spin on classics.Rivers pays homage to the greats,yet makes each well known song his own,no small feat.If you like rock'n roll...you'll have to like this CD.Great driving music,put it on,sing along and the miles just fly by...gotta love this one."
