This is an excellent live album. Many live albums are dull-- worse versions of studio tracks. This one is not. One of the main reasons is unsung genius Bernie Worrell, a man of few words but much music, who no one else seems to know of (in these reviews). He gave the Talking Heads their funky sound-- he was behind the more progressive sound of Funkadelic too. He got them to translate their songs into lives versions and be *funky*. Watch the video "Stranger on Earth" and David Byrne and Tina Weymouth talk about his influence on them. Why did the static Talking Heads start to dance?
