Just a totally awesome sound, takes me back to the dancing clubs when Deep Elum in Dallas was just known to a few of hard core fusion cats

Mesopotamia was an EP produced by David Byrne (if you are reading this, I assume you know who David Byrne is). It is a bit more introspectiv e than usual B-52's party sound. It went pretty much unnoticed but is still my favorite release.
