Johnny Rivers

Johnny Rivers

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.

Both Japanese and Thai Rivers Rocks The Folk EP's based on the album included both Dylan covers.

Johnny Rivers has been anthologized many times, and although neither “Rocks The Folk” cover was issued on a single, they occasionally appeared on compilations. German compilers were partial to Blowin' In The Wind.

Johnny Rivers was probably the first to cover this song, using it as the closing track on his Realization album in 1968. Dylan said in his best selling book Chronicles: Volume One that he preferred Johnny Rivers' version of "Positively 4th Street" to his own recording of the song. "Positively 4th Street" was also rehearsed by The Beatles during the Let It Be recording sessions, but they never recorded a complete version of the song.
