Let's Take A Trip- Jonathan Richman Live 1984


Once you get past Jonathan's initial amusement at his own Spanish, this is a pretty rocking show (though sadly edited)- rocking in the sense of beating out time on your acoustic, stomping on the wooden stage floor (that's the best sounding stage floor I've ever heard!), giving Paris one more chance, honking on the sax and little kids smiling in the audience. Can you get to that? We'll soon find out. Let's take a trip back to 1984.

Okay I couldn't stand how the second video cut off what is probably Jonathan's greatest song, "Summer Feeling" so to rectify I've added a live clip of that from 1983 and my favorite studio version. I feel much better now, gracias.
