Talking Heads / Talking Heads: 77
WB/Sire Records SR-6036 (1977)(US) Original issue Record on US vinyl. the Talking Heads had signed to Sire Records in 1977
and released its first album, Talking Heads: 77. The record received a considerable amount of acclaim for its stripped-down
rock & roll, particularly David Byrne's geeky, overly intellectual lyrics and uncomfortable, jerky vocals. The music was undeniably
catchy, even at its most ominous, especially on "Psycho Killer," Byrne's supreme statement of demented purpose.
The Record and Cover (in shrinkwrap) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00

Talking Heads / More Songs About Buildings and Food
WB/Sire Records SRK-6058 (1978)(US) Standard issue Record on US vinyl. The Talking Heads' second release features an inspired cover
of Al Green's "Take Me to the River"; released as a single, it made the Top 40 and pushed the album to gold-record status. It also
included the classic album closer, "The Big Country," Byrne's country-tinged reflection on flying over middle America.
The Record and Cover (in shrinkwrap with title sticker) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00

Talking Heads Fear of Music lp
Talking Heads / Fear of Music
WB/Sire Records SRK-6076 (1979)(US) Original issue Record on US vinyl. Fear of Music is musically distinct from its
predecessors, mostly because of the use of minor keys that give the music a more ominous sound. Previously, David Byrne's
offbeat observations had been set off by an overtly humorous tone; on Fear of Music he is still odd, but no longer so funny.
At the same time, however, the music has become even more compelling.
The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$10.00



Talking Heads / Remain In Light (Sold Out)
WB/Sire Records SRK-6095 (1980)(US) Original issue Record on US vinyl. Even without a single, Remain in Light was a hit,
indicating that Talking Heads were connecting with an audience ready to follow their musical evolution, and the album was so
inventive and influential, it was no wonder. The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$10.00 (SOLD 12/08)

                               
Talking Heads Houses In Motion (EP)
Talking Heads / Houses In Motion (EP)
WB/Sire Records SIR-4050T (1981)(UK) Import issue 12" Record. This three-track EP consists of a "special" remixed version of
"Houses in Motion," a live unedited version of the song and the original studio rendition of "Air," from 1979's Fear of Music
(the band's second collaboration with Eno). The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$15.00



Talking Heads / Life During Wartime (EP)
WB/Sire Records SIR-4055T (1982)(UK) Import issue 12" Record from Fear of Music includes the album's standout track,
"Life During Wartime," with lyrics that match the music's power. "This ain't no party," declares singer David Byrne, "this ain't
no disco, this ain't no fooling around." This EP contains the studio and live versions of the title track plus a song from
their first album (Talking Heads '77) "Don't Worry About The Goverment."
The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$20.00

Talking Heads Life During Wartime (EP)


Talking Heads / Stop Making Sense (with Booklet)(Sealed) (Sold Out)
WB/Sire Records 25121 (1984)(US) Original Sealed Record on US vinyl. David Byrne is in fine voice here on the soundtrack to
Jonathan Demme's classic film record of the Talking Heads' 1983 tour. Never before had he sounded warmer or more approachable.
The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint) condition...$25.00 (SOLD 12/11)

                               
Talking Heads Stop Making Sense (with Booklet) lp
Talking Heads / Stop Making Sense (with Booklet)
WB/Sire Records 25121 (1984)(US) Original issue Record on US vinyl. The majority of The Wishing Chair foreshadows the sound
that came to define 10,000 Maniacs and Natalie Merchant's later solo career and is te band's sparkling major-label debut.
The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00



Talking Heads / Slippery People (EP)
EMI Records 12EMI-5504 (1984)(UK) Import issue 12" Record featuring the two live tracks, "Slippery People" (long version)

Talking Heads Slippery People (EP)


Talking Heads / Little Creatures (Sold Out)
WB/Sire Records 25305 (1985)(US) Original issue Record on US vinyl. Little Creatures was, in a sense, Talking Heads lite.
It was hard to think of this as the same band that produced "Psycho Killer." But for the band's expanding audience, who made this their
second platinum album, that was okay. The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00 (SOLD 05/12)

                               
Talking Heads And She Was (Import)(EP) lp
Talking Heads / And She Was (Import)(EP)
EMI Records 12EMI-5543 (1985)(UK) Import issue 12" Record. With the commercially successful Little Creatures, Talking Heads
reached a most accessible plateau creating quirky, short pop structures often coupled with equally quirky, at times humorous, lyrics.
This "And She Was" EP features three cuts: "And She Was (extended mix)" and regular studio mix plus "Perfect World."
The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$10.00



Talking Heads / True Stories (Sealed)
WB/Sire Records 25512 (1986)(US) Original Sealed Record on US vinyl. Despite its perfunctory nature, True Stories is not
without its charms. Though an obvious swipe at consumerism, "Love for Sale" boasts one of the band's best hooks, and it's easily their
hardest-rocking tune since the Fear of Music days. David Byrne said that he regretted releasing True Stories with
his own vocals, a decision made at the behest of the film's financial backers: All along, he intended for the lyrics to be sung,
in character, by Pops Staples, John Goodman and the rest of the cast.
The Record and Cover (with (2) title stickers) are in excellent (Sealed/Mint) condition...$25.00

Talking Heads Sounds From True Stories (Soundtrack) lp
Talking Heads / Sounds From True Stories (Soundtrack)(Promo)
WB/Sire Records 25515 (1986)(US) Promotional issue Record on US vinyl. This soundtrack to the Talking Heads film True Stories
was the second release in a planned trilogy, the last of which the film's actors covering the Talking Heads songs from the album never
surfaced. Fortunately, this second volume did, a selection of background music and non-David Byrne tunes written for the film.
The Record and Cover (with Promo stamp) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00



Talking Heads / Naked (Sold Out)
Sire Records 25654 (1988)(US) Original issue Record on US vinyl. It's quite a feat to pull of a late-career album as ambitious as Naked,
and the Talking Heads do so with style and vitality. But no matter how much the liner notes may boast of free-form invention and boundless
creativity, the album's elegiac, airtight tone betrays the sound of four musicians growing tired of the limits they've imposed on one another.
The Record and Gatefold Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00 (SOLD 05/12)
