Catalogue No: CR00489. Barcode: 888072400009.
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 All Music 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.
