The B-52's Stream Unearthed 1979 Live Album

The band says:

We opened up for the Talking Heads just six weeks after our first record was released. We were a little scared of the audience so we kept our heads down and focused – and we danced like mad when there was a break! Ricky [Wilson] was so fierce on the guitar – so intense – it was all so raw and live and we loved it.
