We couldn’t have been more excited when Eagle Rock Entertainment announced they had put together a DVD called Chronology featuring live Talking Heads performances ranging from the group’s start to the last time they played together at the 2002 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The tracklist didn’t just focus on the band’s best known material and contained a number of songs that didn’t make Jonathan Demme’s epic 1984 concert film Stop Making Sense.


Chronology is finally out and it’s everything we wished it would be, though it makes us hopeful footage of the full concerts where the tracks were culled from will see the light of day. A few samples are available on YouTube, so we thought we’d share them with you.

Here’s Cities from the 1982 Montreux Jazz Festival…

And now the gem of the release, a stunning take on Crosseyed and Painless featuring blistering guitar work by Adrian Belew, BOTH Tina Weymouth and Busta Cherry Jones on bass and Bernie Worrell on keys…
