Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

American Utopia
New - LP - 565710
Sealed 2018 Import With Download. His First Solo Album Since 2004's Grown Backwards Includes Collaborations With Brian Eno, Roadidh McDonald, Daniel Lopatin, Jam City, Thomas Barlett & Jack Penate. American Utopia Fits Hand-In-Hand With Byrne's Vision For His Series "Reasons To Be Cheerful," Named For The Song By The Late Ian Dury. Over The Last Year, Byrne Has Been Collecting Stories, News, Ideas, And Other Items That All Either Embody Or Identify Examples Of Things That Inspire Optimism, Such As A Tech Breakthrough, A Musical Act, A New Idea In Urban Planning Or Transportation-Something Seen, Heard, Or Tasted. Just As The Album Questions The Current State Of Society While Offering Solace Through Song, The Content Of The Series Recognizes The Darkness And Complexity Of Today While Showcasing Alternatives To The Despair That Threatens Us. more

David Byrne's American Utopia On Broadway (Original Cast Recording)
New - LP - 075597923001
Sealed 2019 2LP Vinyl Gatefold Release. Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. "David Byrne May Be The Most Cerebral Rock Musician Of His Generation, But Unlike Most Of The Artists Who Follow Close Behind Him, He's Someone Who Understands The Physicality Of Performance And The Notion Of Giving It Up For An Audience; Smart And Arty As He May Be, He Understands The Age-old Concept Of Giving The Audience A Show, And He Happens To Be Very Good At It. Byrne's 2018 Album American Utopia Fared Well With Critics, But What Really Caught The Attention Of His Audience Was The Tour He Mounted In Support, In Which He Performed With A Small Army Of Dancers And Musicians Who Were In Constant, Carefully Choreographed Movement That Changed It From A Concert Into Something Truly Spectacular. The Tour Eventually Led To A Run On Broadway, And American Utopia On Broadway [original Cast Recording] Documents How The Show Sounded To The Patrons Who Saw It On The Great White Way. Listening To This Performance Without Seeing It Puts The Material At A Certain Disadvantage, But This Is A Significantly More Satisfying And Pleasurable Experience Than The American Utopia Album Was. Where The Surfaces Of The Studio Album Were Often Cool And Dryly Ironic, The Sweat And Fire Of A Live Show Is Apparent Throughout, And Byrne's Ensemble Is Capable Of Cutting His Brand Of Funk With Confidence And Élan. For The Show, Byrne Also Filled Out The Program With A Rich Variety Of Songs From His Days With Talking Heads And His Solo Career, And They Enhance The Effect Of The American Utopia Numbers, As Well As Reminding Us That The Lp's View Of The State Of The Union In The Trump Era Was Ultimately One More Chapter In A Story He's Been Pondering For Decades Now. And If American Utopia Was Thoughtful And Whip Smart, The Broadway Show Is Thoughtful, Whip Smart, And Fun -- An Entertainment That Doesn't Compromise Its Intellect For Its Unique Brand Of Showmanship And Vice Versa. Just As Stop Making Sense Was More Than Just Another Live Album From Just Another Rock Band, American Utopia On Broadway Does More Than Document Byrne's 2018-2019 Tour, It Stands As A Grand And Powerful Statement Of Its Own From An Artist Who Is As Relevant Now As He Was In His Salad Days."

Music For The Knee Plays
New - LP - 25022
Sealed 1985 Original. Features Ray Brown, Pete Christlieb, Ernie Watts, Garnett Brown And Others. "For David Byrne, This Was One Of The Last Times He Would Write In The Hyperobjective Style That Marked His Work With Talking Heads Up Through Remain In Light And Some Of Speaking In Tongues. The Occasion, The Chance To Write Interludes — Or "Knee Plays" — For A Large Scale Robert Wilson Opera, The Civil Wars, Called On This Kind Of Approach, Wilson Being As Detached As Byrne. Musically, Byrne Was Strangely Influenced By Hearing The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, And Created These Brass-Led Marches That Sound Like An Art School Has Landed On Bourbon Street, Though In Places It Is Also Reminiscent Of A Sunnier Patch Of The Territory Staked Out In The Catherine Wheel, His Other Dance Score. In The Mix, Byrne Stirs In Some Traditional Gospel Tunes, Arranged To Match The Iconoclastic Style. Byrne's Words, Performed In His Dry, Ever-So-Slightly Amused Style, Are Acutely Observed And/Or Humorously Naïve Slices Of American Life — Anthropological Tomfoolery. The Wry Aphorism-Led "In The Future" ("In The Future, Water Will Be Expensive"; "In The Future, We Will Not Have Time For Leisure Activities") Is The Album Highlight, And A Perfect End To This Experiment."
