Happy Birthday, Johnny Rivers!

Bill Crider mentioned on Twitter that it’s Johnny Rivers’ birthday, so I thought I’d show this clip of him performing “Secret Agent Man” on TV in the 60’s.

There are several versions of the song on YouTube, but I picked this one for several reasons. One, he’s actually singing, not lip-syncing. Two, there are some great horns added to the live version that makes it sound very James Bond-ish. And three…it’s introduced by Judy Garland!
