The twenty-two songs in this magical collection are an overview of Jonathan Richman's seven albums with Rounder Records. Following the success of his group The Modern Lovers, Jonathan abandoned the loud-volume band format for the stripped-down, intimate approach heard in this set. It's sometimes only Jonathan, his guitar and percussion - rock'n'roll in its primal state, leaving room for every nuance of his endearingly wry delivery. The songs are always unpredictable and funny. Compilation produced by Troy Hansbrough, with notes by co-producer Brennan Totten and Jonathan Richman himself.
