Do not sell this recording.
share the heads freely, losslessly and gaplessly.
This is a full show from the 83 Talking Heads tour back in the state where they all went to
college together in the 1970's and then became one of the biggest bands of the 80's. This was
the first hockey arena tour for the Heads, and there is a fair amount of crowd in this recording
(having seen them once in 1980, I would imagine that is very hard to avoid at a TH show after 78
when they played in clubs.) this is a very good performance, and the recording is the whole show.
there is a fadeout ending track 10 and fade in beginning track 11 because there was a set break
at that point, making for a good disc break if being "Byrned" to CD.
