Talking Heads – Little Creatures (1985)
Today – 18 June, Jem of Jemtunes, born in 1959, turns 59. So ‘The ’59’ celebrates 59 years of cracking tunes with a few albums from each year – 1959 through 2018. Currently we’re at year 27 – 1985.
Little Creatures was the sixth studio album from Talking Heads, released in June 1985. It was voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll and is the band’s biggest-selling studio album.
The cover art is by Howard Finster, and was selected as album cover of the year by Rolling Stone magazine.
In 2005, Little Creatues was remastered and re-released by Warner Music Group on their Warner Bros./Sire Records/Rhino Records labels in DualDisc format, with three bonus tracks on the CD side (early versions of “Road To Nowhere” and “And She Was” and an extended mix of “Television Man”). The DVD-Audio side includes both stereo and 5.1 surround high resolution (96 kHz/24bit) mixes, as well as a Dolby Digital version and the videos of “And She Was” and “Road to Nowhere.” In Europe, it was released as a CD+DVDA two disc set rather than a single DualDisc. The reissue was produced by Andy Zax with Talking Heads.
