On March 16, 1986, Jonathan Richman played a stunning set of tunes at Maxwell's!

The New York Times did a brief blurb on Jonathan's show at Irving Plaza on March 14, 1986, describing the set as "low-volume rock- and-roll." Similarly, the set across the Hudson river was definitely low volume, but in no way devoid of energy! You can hear the crowd clapping and singing along throughout the entire show, including a wonderful rendition of "Give Paris One More Chance!"

This tape sounds very crisp and clear, so please enjoy the heck out of it!
