Talking Heads Transmission ImpossibleNew live cd's and vinyl records containing FM broadcasts of Talking Heads shows have been announced in the UK. Released by obscure labels, these albums contain complete live shows form the early days of Talking Heads. Most of these recordings have been available on-line for many years and circulated among tape traders in the early days of the internet. These albums are not authorized by the band, but seem semi-legal as they were originally legal broadcasted in the U.S.

None of these live albums come even close to the official albums 'Stop Making Sense' or 'The Name of This Band is Talking Heads', and are therefore only interesting for completists. Note that many of these releases contain the same shows).
