Album Review: The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads [2004 Version] by Talking Heads
Fantastic, Based on 1 Critic
AllMusic - 90 Based on rating 9/10
Although most people probably think the only Talking Heads live release is Stop Making Sense, the fact is that there's an earlier, better live album called The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads. Originally released in 1982 on LP and cassette, the album chronicles the growth of the band, both stylistically and personnel-wise. The first LP is the original quartet version of the band, recorded between 1977 and 1979, performing excellent versions of tunes (mostly) off 77 and More Songs About Buildings and Food.
