Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers
I have a funny story about this record. I used to have a factory-made tape of this '77 gem during my nomadic phase in the late 80's. Recently arrived in Atlanta, I had this barback gig at the penthouse bar on top of the downtown Hilton.
The dance side had a dj booth with a lighted dancefloor and wicked soundsystem but the dj rarely showed. The sound system wasn't locked up but the records were so I was limited on my "liberties" on those slow nights....
One night I was asked to put something on and all I had in my bag were Grateful Dead tapes and this Modern Lovers cassette. Shoulda stuck with the Dead, because by the time "Abominable Snowman in the Market" kicked in we had some very irate customers. I thought everyone like weird rockabilly!
