Talking Heads : Stay Hungry (live)

  On December 3, 1977 Talking Heads played two shows at the cozy, 600-seat capacity Old Waldorf. KSAN-FM broadcast the second show, which has become a widely shared bootleg. The sound quality is pristine. Five of the twelve songs on the bootleg would show up More Songs About Buildings and Food, including , as singer David Byrne introduces it, "Dot Dot Dot With Our Love". The others are "Artists Only", "Stay Hungry", "The Big Country", and "Thank You For Sending an Angel". There is some extended riffing on "The Book I Read" with Byrne adding some chicken scratch guitar. "Stay Hungry", a part of the Talking Heads set dating back to 1975,  has a bizarre, disjointed middle 8 that would get chopped out of the album version.
