There were a few years in Johnny Rivers' career when he was generating so much high-quality work, that fine albums could just sneak right past the public and what reviewers there were hey, this wasand rock criticism was still neweven in relatively inactive periods. Such was the case with A Touch of Goldwhich is not officially a compilation but assembles a few relatively recent hits interspersed with left-over tracks from various sessions over the previous two years, plus a handful of new sides recorded specifically for it, into as solid a listening experience as anything one might likely pick up on 12" vinyl in And that's not counting the handful of chart hits "Summer Rain," etc.
Rivers is very good at all of it, with a chameleon-like presence in the various musical settings. Byhe was no longer exactly a leading artist, and there was too much competition from other styles, and a busier marketplace for him to dominate music the way he had four years Wienerlied - Ludwig Hirsch - Zartbitter, but this album showed him still capable of delivering fine songs a dozen at a time.
