Anthology, 1964-1977. The 36 songs here, spread over two CDs, don't cover Johnny Rivers' early, pre-Liberty Records career, but they do represent the broadest cross section of his hits for that label and beyond, B-sides, and superior album tracks assembled to date in one place. As revealed here, Rivers is a very versatile, somewhat underrated talent whose range extends far beyond Top 40 rock, "Secret Agent Man" or any other single hit, into folk, soul, and blues, all of which he plays with an unpretentious honesty.
Johnny Rivers - Anthology (1964-1977). Johnny Rivers is a unique figure in the history of rock music. On the most obvious level, he was a rock star of the 1960s and a true rarity as a white American singer/guitarist who made a name for himself as a straight-ahead rock & roller during the middle of that decade. In 1957, he went to New York and wangled a meeting with Alan Freed, who was then the most influential disc jockey in the country.
Secret Agent Man: The Ultimate Johnny Rivers Anthology 1964-2006. This is a 2 CD set with each disc in a single jewel case with art work. In his '60s heyday, there was never any doubt that Johnny Rivers (nee Ramistella) was an energetic performer with a good ear for hit material. In retrospect, though, Rivers's numerous AM radio hits boasted an emotional honesty that belied his commercial image
The Anthology 1961-1977 is a compilation album of songs by Curtis Mayfield when he was with the Impressions and when he was solo. Of the 40 tracks, 30 are from Mayfield's time with the Impressions.

Johnny Rivers Anthology 1964-1977 2CD Set. Rhino RS 70793 (1991). Superbly remastered, the 38 tracks on these two discs sound better than ever. Rivers performs covers almost exclusively, and t are some unexpected choices, like Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" and Mose Allison's "Parchman Farm," alongside the expected Chuck Berry and Motown songs. The double-disc format gives a wider overview than most compilations; hits from both the '60s ("Memphis," "Poor Side of Town," "Secret Agent Man") and '70s ("Swayin' to the Music") are included, as well as relative obscurities.
