Does anyone know the running time? Allmusic just has the 22 track deluxe version. I wish they were more organized and listed the original running time as well.

A copy I have matches closest to variant 3. Matrix/Runout is a little different:

Matrix / Runout (Side A runout etched, STERLING stamped): SRK.1.3645.ww1 #2 —◁ STERLING
Matrix / Runout (Side B runout etched, STERLING stamped): SRK.2.3645 - ww2 #3 —◁ STERLING

I own multiple copies. I’ll occasionally pick up another just to give away.

You can appreciate Eno´s fingerprints all over Byrne´s work around this and the previous year. Greatest of collaborations has to be said.

The last cutting edge record from the mastermind of the Talking Heads. Everything he (or they for that matter) did afterwards (don't believe the Stop-Making-Sense-hype, which is an object lesson in glossy surfaces and well-lubricated soulless perfection) pales by comparison to the body of work assembled between More Songs about Buildings and Food and this record. Essential, stunning, exciting, like anything you could expect from him/them up to this point. This records achieves a perfect balance between the experimentalism and the collages from My Life in the Bush of Ghosts and the sheen of Speaking in Tongues. But since this latter record is devoid of pensive moments or sonic explorations, it strikes me as insipid. It feels like I was never able to forgive them for going mainstream before I had the chance to watch them live on the height of the powers in 1980 or 1981. The Catherine Wheel is the last glimpse of Byrne on the height of his powers (still in his twenties).

Shhhh...don't tell anyone this is as good, if not better, than those Talking Heads LP's they are shelling $10 out for
