Just goes to show what a little faith can do

Many thanks to TMFTML for tipping me off about the upcoming reissue of The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads, which many of my friends will be happy about, because it means I will finally stop complaining about how it's so lame that it's out of print, and in fact was never issued on CD, and is a better live album than Stop Making Sense, blah blah blah, music geek, music geek, music geek. Unfortunately, they will now have to hear me go on about how they've added, like, 16 more songs to the original album. You win some, you lose some.

Why is more songs a problem? I understand that sentiment when additional songs are tacked onto an album meant to stand as a coherent document (do not get me started on the Columbia Sinatra CDs) but TNOTBITH is essentially a compilation album to begin with.

I meant Capitol, of course

Apologies for my crappy six-in-the-morning writing skills. I meant now my friends would have to suffer hearing me *excitedly* going about about all the extra tracks. Thus, you win some (I stop going on about one thing), you lose some (I start going on about something else).
