Johnny Rivers' first album of new material in nearly two decades, 1998's LAST TRAIN TO MEMPHIS is a fine collection of Rivers originals and the usual batch of oldies reinterpreted in that inimitable Rivers way. Rivers first made his name with his residency at the Whiskey A-Go-Go on Sunset Strip, and it's probably not a coincidence that this album's leadoff track is called "Down at the House of Blues," after the 1990s mass-market pretender to the Whiskey's long-vacated throne.
Another Rivers original, the weepy "Don't Let the Rain Come Down" is a fine new track. A cover of the Casinos' "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye," and a tribute to Carl Perkins built on a "Blue Suede Shoes" that interpolates bits of other Perkins classics, are as good as any of Rivers' '60s covers. One of the best interpretive singers of his age, Johnny Rivers knows how to work a song.
