America is Waiting for Byrne and Eno

Okay, I know David Byrne toured this summer performing "the songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno". But I promise - scout's honor(*) - that I actually came up with the idea of putting together a mixtape featuring stuff from Eno's three albums with the Talking Heads, their collaboration album, Byrne's Catherine Wheel, and Eno's mid 70s solo stuff even before Everything That Happens Will Happen Today came out last year. I just didn't get around to actually making the comps til recently. So, believe me or not, here are a couple of Byrne and Eno mixtapes.
