CONDITION DETAILS
Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested). Cover looks great; a few creases near edges, light-scuffing (front/back). Inner sleeve is original (credits/photos). Spine is easy-to-read, with mild-wear. Minor shelf-wear along top/bottom-edge; wear to corners. Opening is crisp with signs of light use. (Not a cut-out.)

ABOUT THE RECORD
True Stories, by Talking Heads was released at the same time as the David Byrne film of the same name. The album does not contain the actors' performances from the film, and as such is not considered a true soundtrack album. Byrne stated in an interview that the decision not to release these unique renditions (including performances by John Goodman and Pops Staples) is a major regret. Instead, this is a Talking Heads studio album featuring recordings of songs from the film. While an original cast recording for this movie was never released, several of the film performances did appear on single releases of several songs from the album. Later, lead singer Byrne released the album Sounds from True Stories containing incidental music from the soundtrack. The single Wild Wild Life became the big hit from the album, accompanied by its video airplay on MTV. The Wild Wild Life video won two MTV Video Music Awards in 1987: "Best Group Video", beating U2 and Crowded House, and "Best Video from a Film". (The video is in fact an extended sequence lifted directly from the film itself.) The album peaked at #28 on Billboard 200 and three more singles were released: Hey Now, Puzzlin' Evidence and Radio Head.
