This is a huge file and a wonderful piece of entertainment. If you ever get the chance to see Jonathan Richman you HAVE
to go see him! I saw him quite a few times already and his concert in Hildesheims Vier Linden was one of my favorites. A few days before I saw him in Berlin at the Loft, pretty good concert, but not that extraordinary. In Hildesheim there was a completely different crowd, maybe it has to do with the old small - big town. The crowd assisted Jojo from beginning to end (The Beat!). He recruited singers from the audience and played songs asked for by listener´s (well, not always...). I can be heard on several occasions on this tape (btw, it is a very good audience recording by a guy from Hannover, who gave his tape recorder to his underage son to avoid problems). I recommended the Bermuda song, because I had heard the story already in Berlin. It is pretty funny that I heard the Bermuda Strollers' song Bang bang Lulu a few days after the concert as muzak in a supermarket!
This tape contains most of JR's hits (Give Paris one more chance is unfortunately missing, as well as...) performed by a real ENTERTAINER! Who can keep 500 people glued to his lips for more than two hours and lets them voluntarily make a large part of the show, must be a real fine artist!Jonathan Richman live in Hildesheim Vier Linden 03.10.1990 complete pt. 1 RS
