1977 and all that

I was getting a bit nostalgic the other day while playing some tracks from Talking Heads: 77 and wondering where those 40 years had gone!  So I thought I would take a look at the sleeve and then perhaps follow it up later with more covers from 1977. It’s filed under Sleeves and their designers.  And I am always fond of those screens full of the same image when I’m researching covers.  All the same, but yet all slightly different.

  1. I too was listening to Talking Heads 77 recently. It’s a great album. I remember seeing them play live just after its release and their support band for the evening was Dire Straits!

      That’s the same tour I saw. I’d never heard of Dire Straits, they didn’t do anything for us and we cleared off after a few numbers to see if we could get Talking Heads autographs!
