Cool, thanks for this. I love wading thru old newspapers and magazines. Since this is a Boston paper, I looked for the earliest mention of Jonathan Richman, and found this fascinating article from Feb 1974:


References to: a number of apparently unrecorded Modern Lovers songs, Jojo forming a new band with Moe Tucker (?!), quoting lyrics about "hippie Ernie," not "hippie Johnny," the album that "will probably never be released."

I've spent way too much time (digitally) flipping thru ye olde issues of Billboard, esp. the record reviews (it's gotten to the point where I now think of an orchestra or female singer as an "ork" or a "thrush") , as well as this fantastic site:
