Talking Heads
"Little Creatures" (Vinyl)

Released in 1985, this was the Heads' biggest selling album in America, going double platinum.

The Heads' musical exploration continued onward, (like 1983's 'Speaking in Tongues' use of looped African drum and chant) this one focused on American music styles and borrowed from country western music, including the pedal steel.

The album artwork (arguably amongst the Heads' most iconic) was done by Americana folk artist Howard Finster.

I won't say this is my favorite Heads album, but I'm pleased to have it in my growing anthology of Talking Heads music.
