Product Description:

LET'S STOMP WITH THE RIVIERAS contains previously unreleased tracks recorded in 1964.
The Rivieras includes: Marty Fortson (vocals).
Includes liner notes by Billy Miller.
The Rivieras were a young garage/surf band from South Bend, IN, who scored a monster pop hit in 1964 with the absurdly infectious "California Sun," a remake of the Joe Jones tune. Never really a surf band in the classic sense, the group was nevertheless left without a niche when the Beatles and their wake swept the sun, surf, and car genre out to sea later that same year. Let's Stomp With the Rivieras is a collection of previously unreleased tracks from their banner year of mostly organ-led romps through classic R&B covers, including a run at Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill" and an interesting version of the stop/start Isley Brothers' party pleaser "Shout." That the Rivieras were from Indiana and had no particular allegiance to the good state of California is made obvious on "Arizona Sun," a flat remake of their giant hit with the state of Arizona plugged in where California used to be. Mostly a curio, Let's Stomp is recommended for surf and garage band aficionados. ~ Steve Leggett
