“California Sun” – The Rivieras (1963)


“‘California Sun’ is a song written and originally recorded by Henry Glover and Morris Levy and performed by Joe Jones. It was then released by Roulette Records in the winter of 1961. The most successful version of the song was released by the Rivieras in 1964 and became the group’s biggest hit in their short career. This song was the result of their first recording session at Chicago’s Columbia Recording Studios in 1963 (purchased by manager Bill Dobslaw). The lineup for this session included Marty Fortson on vocals and rhythm guitar, Joe Pennell on lead guitar, Doug Gean on bass, Otto Nuss on organ, and Paul Dennert on drums. …”
