Tom Tom Club "Close To The Bone" LP (1983)
Details: Jacksonville pressing of Tom Tom Club studio album, "Close To The Bone," released on Sire Records in 1983. This is a promo (cut-copy, slit is top-left) and cover is showing some slight bending from storage. Record media looks NM, super clean copy.
Description: "Formed as a lighthearted family side project to Talking Heads by the band’s rhythm section — bassist Tina Weymouth and her husband, drummer Chris Frantz — the beat-happening Tom Tom Club got off to a great start with the debut album, which contains two irresistibly infectious dance tracks, “Wordy Rappinghood” and “Genius of Love.” Weymouth and her three sisters’ airy vocals sound delightfully innocent over steady but unthreatening rhythm; guitarist Adrian Belew and Tyrone Downie contribute to the club grooves.
Evidently delighted with the results, the same basic cast reconvened two years later and made the similar Close to the Bone, which continues in the same whimsical and sensitive vein (e.g., “Pleasure of Love”)."--Trouser Press
