Byrne, David - Music For The Knee Plays Music For The Knee Plays
Pop New - LP 25022 ECM
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." Ted Mills, All Music Guide.... more details

Pop New - LP 25590 Sire
Sealed 1989 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Small Saw Cut. “On His First Full-Fledged Solo Album, Byrne Indulges His Fascination With Latin And South American Musical Styles, Employing A Variety Of Native Musicians But Mixing Up The Sounds To Suit His Own Distinctly Non-Purist Vision And Singing Over The Tracks The Same Kind Of Witty, Oddball Lyrics Found On Talking Heads Albums.” William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide.... more details

I Always Imagined That The Music Written For True Stories Should Be Heard As It Is In The Film. It Makes The Most Sense This Way.
