There are a few Talking Heads live albums out there but for a group that developed with every studio release this is no bad thing as each live outing preserves a certain stage in that development. Many of the details of this release are in the extensive blurb provided by Amazon so it's worth noting that some of these performances may be available elsewhere. It's also worth noting that there isn't much, if any, evidence of post recording tarting up so the sound quality is occasionally a bit dense and we have a warts and all record, between track tuning and all. We also have Tina Weymouth's bass much further forward in the mix than on the studio tracks, which is definitely no bad thing. For me this adds to the immediacy of the recording and ensures that this album will be getting regular plays in the Big Jim Household.

I've wanted this since 1980 when I got the Cities import 45 with the live version from this show.
The last of the original 4 piece...they should've put this out 40+ years ago...Psycho Killer/Life During Wartime/Take Me To Thje River SMOKES. This is a snapshot of a great American Band that would sustain this level of greatness for many years.

I've been a big fan of Talking Heads since first hearing the single "Take me to the river" and was lucky enough to see them at this point in their career when they were touring Fear Of Music. As previous reviewers have noted the sound quality at points isn't perfect but for me it adds to the feel of the recording otherwise this is a very good cd showing Talking heads on mighty form.

An absolute must own for Talking heads fans.

Has the Talking Heads ever made a bad album? no and even in the recorded live broadcast this is a fantastic addition to any fan's music library.
