Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Talking Heads - 1975 CBS Demo's & Live (Amsterdam & Syracuse) 1977

Talking Heads are like marmite - ie provoke love or hate with no in between. I'm a big fan of their earlier material, talking of which... First up are the demo's they cut for CBS in 1975. These remained shelved, and it was not until 1977 that the band signed to Sire Records, who released their debut long player "Talking Heads 77". Some later well known tracks appear on here, and this is the full & complete 15 track demo file - I have seen several over the years with only several of these included. A well-booted 1977 gig from The Paradiso, Amsterdam is next, followed by another 1977 live outing, this time from the Jabberwocky, Syracuse, 26/1/77. http://rapidshare.com/files/361415524/TalkingHeads_Complete_CBS_Demos_1975.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/361261766/Talking_Heads_-_Amsterdam_77.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/361221654/TlkngHds-JbbrwckySyrcse26Jan1977.rar


  1. Hey ,it looks like the Heads are not sooo popular amongst your readers,at least judged by the lack of comments.Two of the files i did not had before and especially the Jabberwocky is very welcome since the only source i found is not working anymore-Thank you!!

  2. many more talking heads at my blog(hell, I even sing on some of them)

  3. Thanks for the comments. At least the three of us like Talking Heads eh ?? Though we're probably on a Road To Nowhere... LOL
