Catherine Wheel

LP (Item 79455) Sire, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 10

A rare bit of David Byrne from the best years of the Talking Heads – tunes commissioned by Twyla Tharp for an offbeat piece of dance entitled The Catherine Wheel. A few of the tracks are vocals, and feature some of Byrne's most compelling lyrics from the time – and others are instrumentals, filled with guitar and prophet, and coming up with lots of dark rhythmic sounds that lie somewhere in the territory of experimental work at the time by Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, Adrian Belew, and other mainstream avant rockers. Titles include "His Wife Refused", "Two Soldiers", "Red House", "My Big Hands", "Big Business", and "What A Day That Was". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Speaking In Tongues
Sire, 1983. Very Good
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove!
