Anmerkungen:
The first disc features the original quartet on live recordings from 1977 and 1979. The second disc expands to a ten piece lineup that is from live sets in 1980 and 1981. The name of the album is reference to the group's preference to not have "the" in their name and a nod to the way David Byrne would introduce songs live - just by saying the name of the song.

I'd really love to see a vinyl version released of the 2004 edition of this album that was released on CD that has all of the extra songs on it. Pound for pound this might well be my favorite Talking Heads release.

Genius me bought this in hopes of getting to listen to the live version of Born Under Punches live, only to realize it's not on the Vinyl! Either way, really enjoyable pressing.
The surface is quiet and the sleeves are nice and sturdy. The labels are hilariously off-center, but the hole is not. Get your shit together RTI!

Wonderful pressing of some great music. This is my second copy. The first one (YU Syzy pressing) that I bought in 1983 lasted until 2015 :-)

I got to see this band during the Stop Making Sense Tour (the tour they filmed the movie); at Forest Hills. Wow that band rocked. The second disc is indicative of the energy. Great memories from a great great band

It is not often that a live album rivals, and even surpasses, the sound of studio albums; but The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads is just such an album. This live double album covers two time periods. The first disc featured the original quartet in recordings from 1977 and 1979, and the second disc the expanded ten-piece lineup that toured in 1980 and 1981. I love listening to this album and seriously prefer the live versions of many of the songs on this album to their studio album versions. In particular, Byrne’s quirky yet subtle personality comes through better in the live setting. It also shows off how tight Talking Heads were live. The album contains live versions of songs that appear on their first four studio albums, Talking Heads: 77, More Songs About Buildings and Food, Fear of Music, and Remain in Light.

A lot of incredibly talented artists perform on this album including:

David Byrne – guitar, vocals
Chris Frantz – drums
Tina Weymouth – bass, percussion, backing vocals
Jerry Harrison – guitar, piano, keyboards, backing vocals
Adrian Belew – guitar, backing vocals
Nona Hendryx – backing vocals
Busta "Cherry" Jones – bass, guitar
Dolette McDonald – percussion, backing vocals
Steve Scales – conga
Bernie Worrell – keyboards, backing vocals
Jose Rossy – percussion

This album is a joy to listen to and is a good example of how great vinyl can be superior to digital media. The remastered and expanded edition of the album is No. 15 on the Metacritic list of all-time best-reviewed albums.

The whole album is awesome and every track killer; but standout tracks include the ever popular “Psycho Killer”, the hilarious “Drugs” which really shows off Byrne’s idiosyncratic individuality, “Houses In Motion” with its infectious hypnotic groove, “Life During Wartime” and last, but definitely not least, the most excellent “Take Me To The River”. I’m hard pressed not to just list every track on the album.

This album was beautifully produced (Talking Heads), mastered (Greg Calbi & Jeff Shaw), remastered (the extraordinarily talented Bob Ludwig), cut (Record Technology Incorporated) and pressed (Optimal Media GmbH) onto 180g heavyweight audiophile-grade vinyl. A careful inspection of the digitally recorded waveform shows that there are very good dynamics and that there is no heavy-handed dynamic range compression monkey business employed. The album had a very strong signal (0 dB) and was dead whisper quiet with virtually no surface noise, crackle or pops. It was one of the most technically excellent albums that I have ever recorded or to which I have listened.

I wholeheartedly give this album 5 out of 5 stars.

//Paul Rolan Perkes

One of THE greatest bands of all time, if you've never taken the time to check out Talking Heads, do....you won't be disappointed, and this is a really good 'stepping off' album to get into them.
And if you're already a fan but don't yet own this, you should! :-)

There was a knock at my door, which at this [or that] time of the afternoon, can only mean one thing ... a delivery. And there stood my UPS man holding a rather large box, and looking as cute as a button in those brown shorts, saying with a sly smile “Sign here please. I know it’s music, what’d you get?” “Well,” I said, “If you’ve got a couple of minutes, we can open this and see what we’ve got.” Forking over his Benchmade knife, I slit the box and revealed the contents ... Rhino’s four disc boxed set entitled Once In A Lifetime, and this brilliant package consisting of 2 maroon coloured vinyl albums [limited to 1000 copies and available only at Newbury Comics] entitled, The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads. With a quick peak at the brilliant coloured vinyl he was on his way, leaving me to spread out the goodies, and see what’s what.

Putting aside the Rhino collection, which I knew would be wonderful, I began reading the liner notes, which suggested a list of other Talking Heads albums I might dig ... in fact, mentioning every Talking Heads album except the one live album that everyone seems to know due to the Jonathan Demme movie, Stop Making Sense. I suppose there was a bit of corporate hedging, hoping that no one would notice, after all, competition can get a bit unsavory. But to that end, one has to remember how stunning Stop Making Sense was, and even though it was filmed over a three nights, it still stands as a landmark for what concert films should be, securing it as one of the best selling concert albums of all time, say perhaps for Frampton Comes Alive.

The Name Of The Band Is Talking Heads is perhaps more rewarding in a different fashion, drawing material that spans four years of insanely perfect concert recordings ... a proverbial Dick’s Picks for Talking Heads, if you will. For those of you who weren’t there then, Talking Heads was first and foremost a live band ... burning down the house. All of the T Heads albums are brilliant in their way, and none of them repeats themselves, after all, as Mr. Byrne’s says, "Say something once, why say it again." Though what we do get here, is a different side to those studio recordings, songs that when preformed live take on a more robust aggressive stance, with a band that magically expands to more than ten members, including Bernie Worrell, and Adrian Belew. And through it all, there is no question that David Byne has totally choreographed every note that we hear, infusing funk, beat heavy tracks, rock, and African rhythms ... all done with a “stay hungry” attitude one doesn’t necessarily expect from a band such as Talking Heads. Once on your turntable, the surprises keep unfolding, especially when it comes to a set that at first merely guides the listener, then shoulders them, and finally cascades them into a gorgeous rendition of “Remain In Light,” one that will stagger you into submission, leaving you to shake your head, wondering why you never knew this existed.

An unexpected blistering masterpiece that must be experienced on vinyl ... because aside from being a live band, Talking Heads were a vinyl band.

Review by Jenell Kesler

Packaging: The packaging of this record has not been thought through, by it's nature, it's easily damaged, and prone to develop issues, even with the most serious care. There are those who claim to have MINT jackets/sleeves for this limited edition of 1000 red/maroon vinyls, but I have never seen one.
