Such an amazing album…. Recorded January 1976 for $6400. One of my best scores was this first pressing in the 2000s for $1 at Orpheus. Not too many of these around. Initially it sold poorly and they changed the catalog number pretty quickly.

I gotta say this is one band I treasure having seen live (even at the tail end).

Talking Heads - Naked

Today I learned that Kirsty “Makes Everything 10 Times Better” MacCall sang backup on two tracks on this one, specifically the bands last single “(Nothing  But) Flowers”

Also Johnny Everywhere Marr is on five tracks as well.

The stats listed in the “(Nothing But) Flowers” would have been alarming in 1988, I shudder to think what they would be like updated.

I think DJ is so good as a foil to Ash, but I think both solo are kinda stale
slack

Totally agree

I love the song Space Cowboy on this but the rest is forgettable and I had forgotten just how forgettable

Probably not a $18.08 (includes shipping) well spent but i have a weakness for these guys

I guess that’s what a beer will cost at Fillmore love and Rockets show so not too bad
