Previously Unreleased 1980 Talking Heads Concert Footage!

An entire set of vintage, live, Talking Heads has just become available. This is the best of the Talking Heads in top form, just before they became the arena concert show seen in Stop Making Sense. In this concert they still have some of that raw underground feel of their early days. Adrian Belew, Bernie Worrell and their “Afro-Funk Orchestra” take the band to the next level in this fantastic black and white, multi camera footage, shot at the Capitol Theater in Passiac, New Jersey in 1980. The band is in great form and these are the songs that really catapulted them into the international spotlight, favorites like: “Psycho Killer”, “Remain In Light”, “Born Under Punches”, “I Zimbra”, “Take Me To The River”, “Life During Wartime”. “Once In A Lifetime”, “Crosseyed And Painless”, “Life During Wartime”…There’s no filler here and you get to hear what a fantastic rhythm section Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth are, something that sometimes gets forgotten about the Heads.
