Originally released in 1974, LAST BOOGIE IN PARIS: THE COMPLETE CONCERT is Shout! Factory's expanded remaster of one of Johnny Rivers' most beloved late-period albums. Presented in its original order for the first time, this concert cooks from beginning to end. Rivers's blue-eyed soul voice and boogie-oriented guitar work enliven standards such as "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Long Tall Sally," mid-'60s soul stalwarts such as "Baby I Need Your Lovin" and "Sea Cruise,"and even Rivers's faithful version of the Doobie Brothers' "Rock Me A Little While." This is essential for fans.
