About Stop Making Sense
Recorded at three December 1983 shows at Los Angeles’ Pantages Theatre and released the following year, Stop Making Sense is widely regarded as one of the greatest concert films of all time. In it, Talking Heads are augmented by musicians such as Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry and Ednah Holt, helping songs such as ‘Once in a Lifetime’, ‘Burning Down the House’ and ‘Crosseyed and Painless’ reach new creative heights.
