I, Jonathan: Vinyl LPCR00283
Label: Craft Recordings
Release Date: 17th November
I dunno about you but don't you just think 'My Guy' when you think of Jonathan Richman, that perfect mix of cool but ultimately absolutely not at all, someone who observes the inane and sillyness of life. You just wanna hang with him, don't you? Perfect record for us.
'I, Jonathan' is the fourth solo album by Jonathan Richman, released by the Rounder Records label in 1992.
As the founder of influential proto-punk 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 everyday topics, such as music, parties, summer, and dancing. It is widely-regarded as one of his best works, and is considered an influential album in the lo-fi genre.
This is the 2023 re-press on black vinyl.
