"A collection of demos produced by Kim Fowley; four of the songs were re-recorded under John Cale's supervision and appeared on the legendary 1st Modern Lovers LP; the others - with the exception of "I Wanna Sleep In Your Arms" - are included in the set for the "Precise Modern Lovers Order" live album. The sound quality is predictably poor, and the performances not considerably different from the other recorded versions. This item is basically for collector's only. Song list: (1) Roadrunner #1, (2) She Cracked, (3) Astral Plain, (4) Walk Up the Street, (5) I Wanna Sleep In Your Arms, (5) Don't Let Our Youth Go To Waste, (6) Dance With Me, (7) Girlfren, and (8) Roadrunner #2."

"This is rough. Some songs from their first album, some that didn't make it. Actually, this is just about as good as that classic first album. There's nothing exactly heavy here, I think the "early punk" rep comes from the brutal (& naive?)honestly in the lyrics, the recordings not being the smoothest, and the fact that there is a sort of drone going through most of their early music. Excellent songs, excellent execution, all from the most interesting period of this great band."

"First album of Jonathan Richman, produced by Kim Fowley (who also has produced at first the Runaways). With an amazing version of the self written song ?Road Runner". Jonathan Richman has arisen from the surroundings of the Velvet Underground. Their influence is undeniable. Peculiar, sensitive forerunner of punk rock. Highly recommendable."
