What do I need to buy to get every track commercially released on CD (ie, excluding promos)?

If you are from the UK and maybe other European countries

Spotify is a streaming service that will give you nearly everything that anyone has recorded except Pink Floyd and the Beatles

so google spotify

Thank you for your answers but....

...Spotify doesn't do it....it's a streaming service and not CDs, which is what my questions was about....also, thanks for 'informing' me about it but I have had it on my computer for months....it is quite well known you know....:) :lol:

As for the brick - also quite well known! - that doesn't do it either....is "The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads" part of the brick?...no!...Is "Stop Making Sense" part of the brick....again no!

Was my initial query not clear?.....maybe I should repeat it.....what do I need to get to have EVERYTHING that has been officially released on CD?

Also missing from Spotify: Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin and to say that it contains 'nearly everything that anyone has recorded' is a gross exaggeration

OK I take your point!

I'm really excited about my spotify cos I've go a computer hooked up to my HIFI and am listening to some amazing new music

Anyway here is a link to spotify that contains everything that it has on the TH and I think it has everything though i'd like other people to verify obviously they would need spotify
http://open.spotify.com/user/mscottmick/playlist/3OGeEERHvhvQT09jncd8zTT

I've been a fan of TH since I was 15 now I'm 45 so I don't think anything is missing

Buy "Brick", "Stop Making Sense", "The Name of This Band is Talking Heads", "Popular Favorites: Sand in he Vaseline" and the "Once in a Lifetime" boxset then if you want to own all commercially available Talking Heads music on CD. Use Spotify if you don't care about owning music or playing it in an environment where you have no broadband internet available.

How about "Remixed"?

Is "Outtakes and Rarities" available on Spotify?

You will also need to get David Byrne's Songs from True Stories so you can get City of Steel.

...or if you don't care about sound quality. The sound of the discs in The Brick is generally superb, especially the DVD-A sides.

You can also check E-Bay, etc. for rarities, singles, ep's, etc.
