Back in Your Life was released in 1979 under the Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers moniker. Half of the album features Jonathan playing solo and the other half The Modern Lovers are supporting him as a backup band. It's a very pleasant album where Jonathan brings his melancholy mood to the quiet and reflective songs. He's a very talented and creative musician and that's exactly what he's bringing to the rock 'n roll rhythms and pop. The music will remind you of the late '50s, early '60s, but still it has stood the test of time very well.
The Modern Lovers were formed in 1970 by teenage singer, songwriter, guitarist Jonathan Richman, augmented with Jerry Harrison (keyboards), Ernie Brooks (bass) and David Robinson (drums), with Richman's friend and original band member John Felice joining them occasionally.
Back in Your Life is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on silver colored vinyl.
