The Modern Lovers - Live (1977)
I picked up this classic Modern Lovers live album at a car boot sale a few weeks ago, and strangely it seems to be unavailable at the minute, so here's your chance to hear it. Anyone unfamiliar with the work of Jonathan Richman may be confused and perturbed by what might initially sound like the cracked ravings of some adenoidal man-child, however this one is worth several chances and unless you have a heart of stone, it's bound to win you over in the end. The charm, good-humour and optimism of his lyrics and performance are utterly infectious and these songs are sure to put a smile on your face if you're feeling low (which I sincerely hope you are not!).
Side One: I'm A Little Airplane / Hey There Little Insect / Egyptian Reggae / Ice Cream Man
Side Two: I'm A Little Dinosaur / My Little Kookenhaken / South American Folk Song / New England / The Morning Of Our Lives
