Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers: Rockin' And Romance (Rough Trade)

Penny Kiley, Melody Maker, 29 June 1985

IF JONATHAN RICHMAN'S single, 'That Summer Feeling', isn't a hit this year, you can only blame it on the Met Office. Richman, eternal cult figure, is too good to be wasted on minority ears. This LP, one of his finest, should be melting every heart.
