Extracted on this occasion from the (slightly tongue-in-cheek titled) LP "Berserkly Chartbusters Vol. 1", released in the UK on the United Artists label. Peel comments that he'd like to hear more from Jonathan Richman ("Well worth encouraging, I think"). His wish was granted - "Roadrunner" was released (or re-released) in the wake of the punk explosion as a single in its own right on the Berserkly label (catalogue number BZZ 1) and reached no. 11 in the UK singles chart in July 1977.
