Formed in NYC in the mid-’70s by David Byrne, Chris Franz, Tina Weymouth, and ex-Modern Lover Jerry Harrison, Talking Heads soared out of their humble CBGB’s beginnings to become Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and one of the most adventurous and influential bands of all-time. 

The onstage energy that propelled the Talking Heads rise to fame was well documented in the 1982 double-LP live anthology The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads. Following the band through several early evolutions from 1977-1981, this live gem - a 1982 Top 40 Billboard album - is a riveting portrait of a stellar band on the fast track.

The first LP spotlights material the band’s original quartet recorded between 1977-1979 and includes live takes on cuts off of their studio releases 77 and More Songs About Buildings and Food while the second LP chronicles the vastly expanded 10-person Talking Heads lineup assembled for the 1980-81 Remain In Light tour.
