talking-heads (WinCE)

The Talking Heads covered Al Green’s soulful “Take Me To The River” on their second LP, More Songs About Buildings And Food. The single reached #29 and pushed the album into the Billboard Top 30, creating a level of  commercial success that eluded the Heads on their critically acclaimed debut album, Talking Heads: ’77Click here for a video of the band playing live in 1978 on the BBC showcase program, The Old Grey Whistle Test. They look way too serious while laying down their art-funk version of Al’s soul classic.
