The Talking Heads concert film STOP MAKING SENSE, recorded at a 1983 Hollywood performance, brought audiences everywhere face to face with the very visual aesthetic of conceptual artiste David Byrne and his cohorts. Playing the part of performance artist, Byrne used elaborate visual gimmicks to enhance the themes of his songs for maximum visceral impact. Serendipitously, STOP MAKING SENSE captured the band at an artistic peak, as it consists mostly of material from the glorious funk-inspired albums REMAIN IN LIGHT and SPEAKING IN TONGUES. Live, complemented by a phalanx of great auxiliary musicians, the Heads emphasise the funkier aspects of their jumpy art-dance concepts, and tunes like "Burning Down the House" and "Girlfriend is Better", already impressive in their studio versions, seem to jump off the album.

Absolutely played this album to death back in the 80's along with Remain In Light and Speaking In Tongues. This band were so funky and great songs. Once In A Lifetime .... genius!

Cue : Big Suit .......

Got the vinyl album and the Palace release video!
Might as well get the cd to round it off.

Ordered from Amazon.

Absolute Classic.

I've previously tried to order from HMV a few different times only to have my order confirmed then a few days later been informed they cancelled it.
