WB pull the lead out!

"Like the rest I have always loved TTC. I am moving my vinyl over to CD and really wish the WB would pull the lead out and release "Close to the bone" on CD! It needs to be released, really it does!"

"By the time Tom Tom Club released their first album, Talking Heads had already established themselves as an amazing melting pot of musical styles ranging from the electronic influences of Brian Eno to the world-beat type rhythms that made Remain in Light the classic that it is.

Tom Tom Club clearly attempts to take the magic that spilled forth from Remain in Light and drive it in a similar direction while meshing it with the more current sounds of the time. Witness Genius of Love, a landmark achievement that still stands today as one of the great songs of all time. That song alone makes this album worth the price of admission. Fortunately, the rest of the album isn't far behind.

I didn't care too much about Tom Tom Club in the '80s. I'd heard Genius of Love and, of course, thought it was pretty cool. I never bothered to pick up a Tom Tom Club album, though. I found a copy of Close to the Bone on vinyl for $.99 a while back and thought it was good, but not necessarily great. Nevertheless, I kept on the hunt for a nice vinyl copy of their first album. I finally found it last week, for an amazing $4. After just a couple of listens, I think I can easily say that this album is an order of magnitude better than Close to the Bone.

If you're a fan of Talking Heads, world beat, or even just somebody who knows Genius of Love and appreciates it for what it is, get this album. In addition to the well known Genius of Love and Wordy Rappinghood, pay particular attention to L'Elephant, As Above So Below, and On On On On... You will not be disappointed. Join the club."
Great CD but "CLOSE TO THE BONE" is Tom Tom Club's CROWNING

"Make no mistake, this Tom Tom Club Album is fantastic BUT as stated very well by MANY MANY MANY previous reviewers their 2cnd album, "CLOSE TO THE BONE" is HANDS DOWN, TOM TOM CLUB's CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT!!! (So I really don't understand why it's so hard for the record/CD company to get their sh*! together and release this would OBVIOUSLY MAKE ALOT OF MONEY!!!) After recovering much of my 80's collection on CD, this is an ACHING SOAR SPOT!!! My cassette tape has worn out from over 25 years of use. Nothing will ever be better than "PLEASURE OF LOVE" and "THE MAN WITH THE 4-WAY HIPS" but the whole album FLOWS together and their is truthfully not one bad track on "CLOSE TO THE BONE" should REALLY be RELEASED ON CD in IT'S FULL ENTIRITY!!! I could never get sick of this album. I am thrilled to read that many people are still "discovering" them and guess what?... THEY ALL WANT THIS CD! PLEASE RELEASE TOM TOM's "CLOSE TO THE BONE" on CD NOW!!!"
