Outtake from the legendary concert film by Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense. This track was edited back into the main feature for the film's original VHS release in the mid 1980's. For the DVD and Blu-Ray reissue, the track was edited back out but placed in the extras as a bonus feature. Big Business for those who might not know, is not a song on any Talking Heads records and instead came from David Byrne's solo album The Catherine Wheel, along with What A Day It Was, which was included in the film. A third song from The Catherine Wheel, Big Blue Plymouth (Eyes Wide Open) was played on the tour that Stop Making Sense spawned from, and was probably filmed by Jonathan Demme, but not included in any version of Stop Making Sense. The song can be found on a few bootlegs from that tour. I Zimbra was the opening track from their 1979 LP Fear of Music. Copyright 1984 by Talking Heads Films and Palm Pictures. This video was uploaded as a showcase for the Blu-Ray reissue and to provide fans with the best version of the song in my opinion.
