An album that makes more sense having on this CD than vinyl.

"Stop Making Sense" is one of my favorite films, and this special edition of the album is one of my all-time favorite records. Every time I listen to it I am amazed. Definitely worth getting for several songs that are not included in the original release of the album, most notably "Heaven" and "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)". Also, the encore "Crosseyed and Painless" is great. Some of the songs on this release are different versions than the ones that appeared on the original release as well; the songs here are for the most part the same ones as in the film.
