Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers - Modern Lovers 88 (RSD 2022)
Brand new. Sealed album.
35 Anniversary Edition of Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers final studio album. Delivering a surprisingly lush sound, the musicians perform an upbeat selection of playful, acoustic tunes, including I Love Hot Nights, African Lady, and Gail Loves Me. A favorite title in Richman's lengthy catalog, Modern Lovers 88 has been praised by AllMusic as "Quite rocking, with heavy debts to doo-wop and Bo Diddley rhythms, and a jolly (though not sappy) summertime campfire feel.” This reissue features all-analog mastering from the original tapes by Kevin Gray at Conhearent Audio and is pressed on "Hot Nights Sky Blue" vinyl.
