Collectors information & Description: 

The album does not contain the actors' performances from the film, and as such is not considered a true soundtrack album. David Byrne stated in an interview that the decision not to release these unique renditions (including performances by John Goodman and Pops Staples) is a major regret. Instead, this is a Talking Heads studio album featuring recordings of songs from the film. While an original cast recording for this movie was never released, several of the film performances did appear on single releases of several songs from the album. An early working title for the project (endorsed by bassist Tina Weymouth) was Wild Infancy.
