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 '50s. 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
The Modern Lovers were formed in 1970
by teenage singer, songwriter, guitarist Jonathan Richman, augmented
with Jerry Harrison (keyboards), Ernie Brooks (bass) and David Robinson
(drums), with Richman's friend and original band member John Felice
joining them occasionally.
