I, Jonathan - Jonathan Richman [VINYL]

We have run out of stock for this item. Email Me When Available
Fourth solo album by Jonathan Richman, originally released by Rounder Records label in 1992. As the founder of influential protopunk band The Modern Lovers, Richman had strived to convey authentic emotions and storytelling with his music. 'I, Jonathan' continued this aesthetic with simple and sparse rock and roll arrangements, and straightforward lyrics about mundane topics. Songs on the album addressed subjects such as backyard parties ('Parties in the U.S.A'), memories of neighbourhoods in which Richman had lived ('Rooming House on Venice Beach' and 'Twilight in Boston') and his admiration of his primary musical inspiration, the Velvet Underground ('Velvet Underground'). The latter song includes a brief interlude of the Velvet Underground song, 'Sister Ray'. The album helped increase Richman's cultural profile, which would include a 1993 appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in which Richman performed one of the album's songs, 'I Was Dancing in the Lesbian Bar'.
