Jerry Harrison, no musical novice by any stretch (check out his work with the early Modern Lovers), proves his formidable talent as a t and songwriter for the first time in this close-up. There's little doubt that Harrison's debut is informed most directly by the last few Talking Heads albums, particularly the genre-defining Remain in Light. The polyrhythmic exercises, spoken word interludes, and Enoesque knob twiddling are standard parts of Harrison's palette

In March 1977, they added Jerry Harrison, formerly of Jonathan Richmans band The Modern Lovers and their first album was released soon afterwards, Talking Heads,77, which did not contain the earlier single. The album received acclaim and spawned what became the groups first charted single. The song was released to the radio just months after the killer known as the Son of Sam had been terrorizing New York City. However, it was revealed that Byrne had written the song nearly four years earlier.

*** noteworthy. While Talking Head Jerry released some albums under the Casual Gods moniker, this was apparently the only one under his name alone...the "new wave" genre listed here at this time (3/2019) not really capturing the sounds, funk was clearly what he was chasing after, for the most part at least, what you'd expect from an album with Nona Hendryx and Bernie Worrell...Adrian Belew mostly offering funky licks...funky rhythm section. Varied set to be sure, from irritating to enjoyable... the stand-out cuts make this a worthwhile listen for fans of the Heads.

The two best tracks are "Things Fall Apart" and "Worlds In Collision" these are grade A Talking Heads-esque tracks. Just buy those two songs. The rest is only of interest for curiosity's sake.
