A few great standout moments, particularly so with Monologue on Bermuda, Pablo Picasso, and a very early sounding version of Velvet Underground, for which Jonathan is still playing about with lyrics... sounds pretty different here!

Daily's Bar, Stockholm, Sweden, 10th August 1991 - 1 CD - Very Good

 

It's a great solo show of very good quality, and a new one to me. The only small flaw that I've noticed is at about 3 minutes 15 into 'This Kind of Music'. There's a 1/2 second bit where some crowd noise, or something like that, cuts in over the top of the song, the track then continues as normal. That's how the CD arrived. 

 

Also, this show could be from the 10th August or 8th October, 1991, as it came labeled 10/8/91; I've gone for the August date here, but maybe someone has a ticket stub or flyer which would confirm the date either way?

Solo Show - Somewhere in Canada, September or October (?) 1991 (?) - 1 CD - Fair

 

Other than it was recorded in Canada in the 1990's no other info came along with this show. My best guess dates it as sometime in late 1991 - going by the song choices and Jonathans comments between songs. 

 

An early version of 'Let Her Go Into The Darkness' is introduced here as a brand new song, "not even on the new album that just came out" - Possibly, 'Having A Party With Jonathan Richman' which, far as I know, was released  in late September 1991.

 

About half the show looks to be here- The taping cuts out straight after Jonathan calls an intermission.

Sala Universal, Madrid, Spain, 1991 (?) - Tape - Very good

 

The date for this one I've had to take a bit of a wild guess at, coz the guy who sent me it was not too sure about when the recording was first made. He also said that this is about 1/2 of what the complete show was when first broadcast; so, unfortunately, this is a shortened and edited up version.

 

All that said it's still a great show! Jonathan's having a whale of a time with his audience and he even sings a Spanish version of 'Reno'.

 

Hopefully the rest of the show will eventually turn up, but at present the song list is :-

WMNF Radio, Tampa Inside Out, 2nd Feb 1992 - 1 CD - (Radio Interview) - Excellent

 

The presenter asks people to phone in with their questions to be put to Jonathan, which according to Jonathan means that 'it's time to pester Jonathan... so ring in with your rude obnoxious questions!'

 

Actually though it's a pretty good interview, the music being discussed is mostly from 'Jonathan goes County'.

 

About 30 minutes long.

Caesars, Tampa, Florida, 1992 2 CD - Excellent

This is about the very best of all the live recordings - Jonathan's on great form, some great songs, nice chat and the audience are having a hoot too; there are many, many highlights, and all with a sound quality that is just excellent!

Personal Highlight - 'I eat with Gusto, Damn You Bet!'

This is a must have!!

A flaw with the recording on this one. The sound's pretty clear but for the first third of the show until part way through 'Action Packed' it's only recorded onto the right channel; from there on though it's okay and the rest of the show sounds fine.

The Birchmere, Arlington, VA, 9th June  1992 - Tape - Very Good

A great show including an outstanding version of 'Monologue on Bermuda' - the full story is here with two, yes, two songs within a song, 'Here come the Martian Martians' &  'Abominable Snowman in the Market',  before moving back to where we started at 'Down in Bermuda' - Excellent.

It's also one of the few shows I have, so far, that includes a live version of "Tandem Jump!" so, set your altimeters...

another - Highly recommended!

Spectrum Cabaret, Winnipeg, Canada, 15th July 1992 - Tape - Good

 

Soundboard recording - but as the audience are hardly being picked up there is little or no live atmosphere present. Probably not a bad show but not a favourite of mine - I much prefer hearing shows where there's lots of interaction between Jonathan and the audience.

I really like this recording; lots of fun with the audience in this in-store' appearance and all are obviously having a great time. It only lasts something like 11 minutes in total but it's very, very playable.

Until recently I thought this was an audio recording only, but I've since heard that it's actually from a video recording someone made - so film footage of this mini concert exists too!

Just four songs from this show are available:

Twilight in Boston

The Fenway

 

Lansdowne Playhouse, Boston, MA, 6th April 1995 - 1 CD - Good

 

Quite a good recording until the start of the last four songs, but from there on the recording is pretty flawed, sounds like there was a very bad burn done sometime ago, and because of this the end of the show is pretty much unplayable.

Jazz Cafe, London, 18th February 1999 - Tape - Very Good

 

The first few seconds of this sound a little strange but the tape soon perks up. 

 

'Velvet Underground' is the highlight for me on this one, Jonathan throws in some great sounding snatches of 'Sister Ray' and 'What goes on...' probably the best version of 'Velvet Underground' I've yet heard.

 Jojo - Flyer - Manchester University 5th November 2000.jpg (348117 bytes)      

We were at this one and enjoyed it loads; it's a good show but unfortunately the recording has some slight digi-noise in the background on some songs, nothing that spoils the show but it's noticeable in the quieter moments, more so towards the end than the beginning. Because of this I think I prefer the Manchester 2001 show to this one.
