Talk Talk

Live at Montreux 1988 DVD

Review by Travis Jensen

If you remember the music of the 1980’s you probably remember Talk Talk. They were one of the more successful bands of the time and like most of those groups seemed to vanish from the spotlight by the time the decade was gone.

This DVD shows that they were not only a studio and radio sensation, but a band that could pull it off live. I’m sure you are getting sick of my soap box about how this isn’t jazz so why are they playing a jazz festival. It’s true, but been there done that. What these guys are is one of the more talented of the bands that became popular in the 1980’s. They do a great job in this live performance and the sound is great. The video quality is quite good for the time period, too. This DVD is sure to be a treat for fans of the band, but it would also be a great reminder for those who only vaguely remember these guys. They were definitely one of the gems of the time and well worth rediscovery.
