Beautifully put-together with classic performances and interviews, the viewer gets to see the transition from the early three-piece days (singer/songwriter/guitarist David Byrne, bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz in 1975) to a quartet (keyboardist/guitarist Jerry Harrison joined in 1977), on into an ensemble of multi-cultural proportions. A deluxe edition of the release will also be available that will include a 48-page hard-cover book with photographs and an essay by the late Lester Bangs, originally published as a review of Fear Of Music for the Village Voice in 1979. The essay is the complete and unexpurgated version, available here for the first time.

The early clips from The Kitchen and CBGB in New York City...the global success in the 1980s...the celebratory reunion performance of "Life During Wartime" when they were inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame in 2002...it's all here. (Although they continued to record, Talking Heads stopped touring in 1983. They officially broke up eight years later.)

Bonus Features include a fascinating Byrne interview in 1978, a 35-minute 1979 documentary-styled British television show on the band and commentary from Byrne, Harrison, Frantz and Weymouth.
