We couldn’t be bigger fans of the Talking Heads’ driving force. We could try, but we would not be successful. More Songs About Buildings and Food, Talking Heads ’77, Remain in Light, Speaking in Tongues…this guy was responsible for more albums I worship than just about anyone else in my personal musical history.
So on this day, Davey Byrne’s 55th birthday, please allow us to present youse with this crisp stream of a fantastic late-’70s Talking Heads show: From September 1978 at Hofstra University, this one leads off with arguably my favorite TH tune, The Book I Read. Start listening to it now while I don my big suit.
