“The Name of This Band is The Talking Heads” is a double live album originally released in 1982 from the band Talking Heads. The first album featured the original quartet in recordings from 1977 and 1979, and the second album featured the expanded ten-piece Talking Heads that toured heavily in 1980 and 1981. It contains live versions of songs that appear on “Talking Heads: 77”, “More Songs About Buildings and Food”, “Fear of Music”, and “Remain in Light”.
“The Name Of This Band Is The Talking Heads” captures a hungry band on its way up, performing with a fire that was never matched on later tours.
