Originally released in on LP and cassette, the album chronicles the growth of the band, both stylistically and personnel-wise. The first LP is the original quartet version of the band, recorded between andperforming excellent versions of tunes mostly off 77 and More Songs About Buildings and Food. In order to present something close to the music on that album, the original quartet lineup was greatly expanded.
The excitement of this material is palpable, and the muscular band rips into these tunes with more power than the originals in most cases. Belew is absolutely on fire throughout, especially on "The Great Curve" and "Crosseyed and Painless," where his deranged feedback soloing has never sounded better. At this point in their career, Talking Heads were still Mac Gyver - MacGyver,Airwolf,John Carpenter - Action Movie Box,3 CD an underground band; it was "Burning Down the House" that really thrust them into the mainstream, and Stop Making Sense documents their arrival as a more or less mainstream act.
The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads captures a hungry band on its way up, performing with a fire that was never matched on later tours. Unfortunately, The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads remained unavailable on compact disc for years, which is a shame since it's arguably one of their finest releases.
