This one is a good stereo audience recording.

"Some things in life are just too good to happen just once, including possibly the concert event of the year in 1980. It was a pretty good year for concerts by alot of people, such
as the Talking Heads Big Band with Adrian Belew and David Byrne sharing guitar and vocal duties. I always thought that was a great pairing, and this was my one chance to see it in person. the second night is a more up close recording than this one is, but I thought this show had more fire in it. unfortunately it's missing take me to the river (last song, encore)
but the rest is in here and it was a listenable recording of a nice hot concert. Belew has always been warmly welcomed in Boston, and so have Talking Heads. No exception here.
Byrnin' for you, Boston...
