The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads was originally released by Sire in 1982 amid growing rumors that the band would not play together again.
The album was originally only released on double vinyl and cassette and is a collectible on these formats. Rhino has just released an expanded and remastered version on double CD with a lot of bonus tracks. The first CD is the best of the '77 to '79 stuff, and the second showcases the expanded '80s version of Talking Heads exploring African polyrhythms, with each of the instruments doubled - Adrian Belew was on guitar, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, Busta Jones on bass, and Steve Scales on percussion, with Dolette McDonald and Nona Hendryx helping out on vocals. All 33 songs have been digitally remastered by Bob Ludwig, including live and extended versions of "Psycho Killer," "Don't Worry About The Government," and "Who Is It?" - TK
