This is very much a straight upload of a lovely CD-R I got a few years back.

It’s true stereo (unlike another mono version that circulates) and couldn’t be mistaken for pre-FM were it not for the very brief announcements in two places.

The only changes were reducing the speed -0 minus 3 percent (by comparing to other contemporaneous recordings), and editing
in the last chord of The Good Thing, and synch-ing in the start of Take Me To The River as there was a small skip
in the music files on that (not a CD-R fault). I synch-ed in the missing 2 seconds (! – 1 second of each) from the
download version, doing a little careful mixing to ensure a smooth match. If I hadn’t described this here you
wouldn’t know the joins were there.

NB there is some confusion over Talking Heads FM concert dates from what I can see but my CD-R – in a printed cover (very nice
but sorry I don’t have a working scanner) stated 28 August 1978.



Like another Talking Heads collector I’ve lost some of my files in a hard drive crash.

Please share more Talking Heads if you can.

In particular FM shows – such as Berkeley Performance Centre 1979.
