Music taketh away and given: RIP Zevon, Talking Heads box

On the sad side: Warren Zevon passed away Sunday, losing his battle with cancer just two weeks after shipping his last album. Rest in peace.

On the happier side: New Talking Heads box set, Once in a Lifetime. Deltas from their prior two-disc best of collection: “Uh-Oh, Love Comes to Town (Alternate Version),” “New Feeling (Alternate Version),” “Pulled Up,” “Artists Only,” “Tentative Decisions,” “Stay Hungry,” “I’m Not In Love,” “The Book I Read,” “Thank You for Sending Me An Angel,” “Found a Job,” “A Clean Break (Live),” “The Big Country,” “Cities (Alternate Version),” “Life During Wartime” (album version), “Air,” “Drugs (Alternate Version),” “Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On),” “Listening Wind,” “Houses in Motion,” “Making Flippy Floppy,” “Girlfriend Is Better” (the best-of had the live version), “Slippery People,” “Creatures of Love,” “The Lady Don’t Mind,” “Love for Sale,” “People Like Us,” “Puzzlin’ Evidence,” “The Democratic Circus,” “In Asking Land (Alternate Take).” That’s 28 tracks difference. No word on price.
