Talking Heads 1975 CBGB's Performance

Ever wanted to see Talking Head's perform an acoustic version of Psycho Killer at the infamous CBGB's back in 1975? I thought so. Well here it is.

In the audience that night watching the band for the first time was one Seymour Stein who went on to be their manager and the co-founder of Sire records. Headlining the bill that night was The Ramones who Seymour had just signed. What a night that must have been.

The footage has been released as part of a new DVD documentary called Chronology featuring classic performances, interviews and commentary from original band members David Byrne, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, as well as keyboardist and guitarist Jerry Harrison. For the more hardcore fans with cash to burn there is a deluxe edition which features a 48-page hardcover book that includes an essay review of Fear of Music by the late great music journalist Lester Bangs.
