Rhino Records has set an Aug. 17 release date for two retrospectives celebrating the work of influential quartet Talking Heads. The live package "The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads" is the first-ever CD issue of a fan-favorite release from 1982, and "The Best of Talking Heads" is the first single-disc greatest-hits set from the group.

Both sets were put together with the band's involvement.

"The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads" has been buffed up to a two-disc release with the addition of 13 previously unreleased live tracks spanning 1977-1981 and three cuts from a 1979 promotional-only live disc.

"The Best of Talking Heads" is an 18-track collection of the band's most popular tunes, including "Psycho Killer," "Burning Down the House" and "And She Was."

Last fall, Rhino released the three-CD, one-DVD box set "Once in a Lifetime," including songs from throughout the band's career as well as all its videos.
