David Byrne ‎– 3 Big Songs (US 12″)

Definitely worth picking up for anyone into Leftfield Disco with plenty of conga’s. It has aged really well. Mark Kamins and Butch Jones helped out with the mix.

From the LP , “The Complete Score From The Broadway Production Of “The Catherine Wheel” the main track has Funkadelic’s Bernard Worrell on clavinet and John Chernoff on guitar. Kid Creole’s coconut – Yogi Horton is on the drums with Byrne playing the rest of the instruments.

“My Big Hands” is a short quirky funk masterclass, whilst paranoid, scratchy guitar features over the heavily reverb (and live sounding) vocals. Backing vocals by Susan Halloran who also appears on a bonus track – a live version of track 2 recorded in Werchter, Belgium with Byrne’s vocals performed through a megaphone!

  1. Thank you. I had the soundtrack for years but never this sampler. These songs are some of Byrne’s best work.
