Album Notes
Jonathan Richman's career as singer, songwriter, and all-around mischief-maker now spans more than thirty years. Like Lou Reed & the Velvet Underground before him, Richman has inspired countless music fans around the world to take off their headphones and strap on guitars. From his Velvet-inflected early days with the original Modern Lovers, through numerous iterations of the Lovers, to his latter-day solo career, Richman's work has mixed an arresting sense of innocence with a deep sensitivity to human emotion.

o After Hours: a Tribute to the Music of Lou Reed
o Glass Flesh 2: a Tribute to Robyn Hitchcock

Graham McClelland (Sunderland UK)

A refreshing adaptation and musically innovative rendiditions of Jonathan's fine
'If I were a Richman' is a fine tribute to many of Jonathan Richman's quirky but brilliant songs by up and coming bands. Both lyrically and musically the compilation contains ear opening tracks which while paying tribute to Jonathan's own unique stylings, incorporate the bands own interpretations.

For fans of Jonathan Richman it is great pleasure to hear these songs which many will have sung along to at the great man's concerts, in a new energised, refreshing and innovative way.
