The Complete Score From “The Catherine Wheel” (RSD 23)

Rhino / Sire
  • Record Store Day 2023 - 180g 2LP In Gatefold Sleeve

    Released: 22nd Apr 2023


An absolutely monumental masterpiece of late 20th century music is the seamless funk opera score David Byrne created for choreographer Twyla Tharp’s The Catherine Wheel in 1981.

This 2LP set marks the vinyl debut of the full score (previous releases contained only a 1LP condensed version). The tracks "Big Blue Plymouth", "My Big Hands", "Big Business" and "What a Day That Was" were all performed live by Talking Heads in 1982 and 1983.
