MODERN LOVERS - ROCK & ROLL WITH THE MODERN LOVERS Vinyl LP
Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Rock 'n' Roll with the Modern Lovers is the second album released as Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers. The band, which is built around singer-songwriter and guitarist Jonathan Richman, almost totally focuses on the sound from the 1950s. The lo-fi record breathes folky roots music and rock 'n roll as it would sound ages ago. 'Ice Cream Man', 'Egyptian Reggae' (earning them a UK Top 5 hit) and 'Roller Coaster by the Sea' are all superb songs, uncomplicated and wonderful. This is one of the most remarkable projects recorded by Jonathan.
