Notes

Jonathan Richman: "We would usually do one encore of Ice Cream Man, and at the Hammersmith Odeon (which was in London, not Birmingham), I probably did too many encores of it. Two would have been plenty; our drummer, D. Sharpe, started up another chorus by himself. I thought it was a mistake at the time, but being on stage before 3500 people as we were, I didn't think this was the time to make an issue out of it. In a word, we did too many encores, and it's as simple as that."

This album was recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London - it's not noted on the album credits.

      I can't find any existing record of this, but as I recall way back in 2003 or 2004, before this was released, there was a post on the Jonathan Richman Yahoo! group (now defunct) indicating that this was intended to be expanded into a 2CD release, presumably encompassing the entire set(s) from which these 9 tracks originated. There was a detailed track listing and everything.

      Later there was a follow-up post about the extra tracks being nixed owing to a rights issue or some such. (This is the only Castle/Sanctuary JR&ML reissue to not include ANY bonus tracks.) This has haunted me for years. I would LOVE to hear those extra tracks or at least be able to see the planned track listing so I could fantasize about what might have been.

      Anyone out there know/remember anything about this?
