The Rivieras - Let's Have A Party (U.S.A. 102 - Mono)

I used to have a fascination with The Rivieras because of shredding covers of their song "California Sun" by great bands like the Dictators and the Ramones. Then I learned they were from LaPorte, Ind - where my wife's family is from - and where I usually spend Sunday evenings. Jen's dad and mom saw the Rivieras multiple times around town in LaPorte, which kind of blows my mind.

I was psyched to find this LP in South Bend, Ind. Around 30 miles from LaPorte. Anyway, none of this stuff appears to be on CD aside from the hit -- so enjoy the Rivieras in glorious monophonic sound!

Listen to California Sun (MP3)
Listen to H.B. Goose Step (MP3)

that's awesome! La Porte is about where the time changes when traveling east on HWY 30, ain't it? That's so cool we have a band from that area from our state. You on facebook? Cheers!
