My favourite musician is Jonathan Richman.  I have almost all of his albums, maybe 20 of 23 or so official albums ie. non-boots. He is regarded by many as the inventor of punk.  If you want to argue that, start a new thread please.

I don't have this one, but I just offered $30 US ($40 asked) on it, on vinyl of course.

What he lacks in singing ability, he makes up for in wisdom and passion.  He spent a career of singing little baubles of anti-intellectual joy.  When I saw him live last, I heard him play 'When My Mother Lay Laying' about watching his mom go.   You could hear a pin drop as all his fans listened.  I'm tearing up just thinking of it now.
