The Up-Turn

Talking Heads are legendary for their live performances, specifically for their amazing concert-movie Stop Making Sense.  Yet this performance of Crosseyed and Painless live in Rome seems to stand out from the many amazing performances.  The opening minute seems to be an improvised jam that goes seamlessly into the complex and stunning Crosseyed and Painless.  This performance features Adrien Belew of King Crimson and all the instrumentalists add great and complex melodies to the dense wall of sound.  It is videos like this that remind me why Talking Heads are one of the greatest bands of all time.
