The Marvin Rainwater Tours

Jon Derek toured with his very good friend Marvin Rainwater on countless occasions during the 1970's and 1980's.  Jon soon became Marvin's trusted right-hand man on stage providing rhythm guitar and tight harmony vocals.

 

After their first tour together in 1971, Marvin was quoted to have said that he didn't want anyone else other than Jon Derek's Country Fever backing him on future tours to the UK and Europe. His wish was granted!!

 

Country Fever also recorded an album with Marvin in 1972 - 'Marvin Rainwater Gets Country Fever' released on the Phillips label.  Jon Derek was also featured on Marvin's 1976 album release 'Some Old, Some New Especially For You' on Westwood Records.
