On these recordings Johnathan Richman is Iggy Pop's musical little brother: raw and unpolished, determined to somehow subvert or ignore the reigning musical zeitgeist, but with more poetry and less (none, really)of the menace.
If you're interested in exploring the origins of proto-punk, or if you just want to hear Mr. Richman at his most youthful and raw then this recording is a must.
Final note...I've let a few audiophile friends of mine who were not familiar with The Modern Lovers listen to this record and they LOVED it. Two of them later told me that they couldn't find this record and bought another one instead and did NOT like the band nearly as much or AT ALL. This record is THAT much better. Happy Hunting!
