Talking Dark Pearl

Remain in Light, released on Sire Records in 1980, was an attempt by Talking Heads to dispell notions of frontman and lead vocalist David Byrne, ‘leading a back up band”.  One of the first new wave albums to utilize series of samples and loops, it merges many genres and was acclaimed for its sonic experimentation.  Talking Heads’ “magnum opus”.


After a long battle with former management, resulting in years of legal troubles, in 1978 Springsteen released a somewhat less commercial album than his four prior (most previous, Born to Run) titled, Darkness on the Edge of Town.  Van Zandt is given formal credit for his contribution to production assistance on this appropriately named, dark, and often lyrically morose album.  This vinyl is in mint condition, in it’s original shrink.


Certified quadruple platinum, released in 1971, Pearl was the final album with Joplin’s direct participation, and the only one recorded with the her final touring unit, The Full Tilt Boogie Band.  With hits like “Me and Bobby McGee”, “Get it While you Can”, and “Mercedes Benz”, this promo copy vinyl is a must have for any Joplin fan.
