Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers - Modern Lovers 88 (35th Anniversary) [RSD22]
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." Available for the first time on vinyl, 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.
