Re: What does the collector's box look like?

I would have at least preferred to have an outer box to hold all these deluxe editions. It would make a nice display alongside my Enz box sets.

Re: Crowded House (self-titled) Deluxe Reissue discussion

Listening to the demo's of the album are quite interesting. A majority of the songs; Oblivion, Can't Carry On, Walking On The Pier, etc., sound identical to a lot of the stuff on Split Enz final album See Ya 'Round. I can easily see that without Froom's involvement, CH could have easily gone down a similar path to that of See Ya 'Round and ended up with a mediocre unmemorable album / direction. My only regret is that CH did not include a finished version of Recurring Dream on the album...

Finally listened to all of the new tracks today. Amazing! I totally agree with Oasis02 about Froom's phenomenal influence, but I can still hear the Finn magic in these tracks nonetheless. A quick rundown on the highlights: Hole in the River - great early version, I particularly love how well Paul's "still emotional" rap fits musically and thematically Walking on the Pier - I would've tried my hardest to make room for this song or at least released it as a b-side. Love the liberal use of...

Interesting ending. The extended ending is the part that reminds me most of the Split Enz original. I have always preferred the CH version personally though.

I am a relative newby here and I must say that I had noticed a bit of something going on here, whether it be from the "site" or "fans" I am not able to make a judgement. Me personally? I am unbiased! I love any great NZ Music! Split Enz were great! Post Enz Finn stuff was/is great! Post Enz Judd stuff was/is great!

Re: New Unique CD

playitstrange ·
@hellbilly59 .. yes, youre spot on there.. Phil and Peter Green had a falling out a few years ago, hence why there is no promotion whatsoever from Frenz, which sucks to be honest with you. You'd think that especially given the fact that if there was no Phil Judd, there'd've been no Split Enz, which means there'd be no Frenz.. So any personal issues they may have could be kept personal and Phil could get the little promotion he deserves as the others do, but sadly thats not how things operate...

Re: November 16th- Crowded House Live Stream

BRANDO BRANDT ·
Like most of us, I've been listening to Neil's singing (studio recordings, bootlegs, live concerts, webcasts, etc.) for 30 years. I believe that when it comes to singing, it really is a matter of personal tastes. A good example of this is Tim Finn. Tim's early recordings with Split Enz to me sound like the Munchkins from the Wizard of Oz (no offense to anyone). We all know how much his voice has changed , but when it comes to his singing style it's been very different throughout his career.

Nice list! I would add Phil Manzanera's K-Scope which like Southern Cross featured Tim on lead vocals for a few tracks. Other Enzers were also involved. Mark Hart was a member of Supertramp for a few albums before and after Crowded House. Neil was featured prominently on several Dave Dobbyn albums including as producer and co-songwriter on Twist. Phil contributed music to a movie called Amy in 1997 but I don't know if the soundtrack was officially released.

Hahaha my singing's probably way off key. Sorry everybody in earshot! And we've probably crossed paths at gigs then! I've lived in Melbourne since 2007. The only Finn-related shows in the city that I've missed are one of the two gigs at Rod Laver in 2007 (I was a poor undergrad at the time and could only really afford one, though I now regret not going to both because I missed "Everything Is Good for You" the other night!), and most of the Paul Kelly/Neil Finn shows. Apart from how pricey...

Thom Bullock ·
Totally agree - was expecting Saturday Sun and Twice if You're Lucky, Don't Stop Now and Pour Le Monde. But they knew how to get what they wanted from the crowd, I suppose. It's not as if Split Enz felt obligated to throw in multiple See Ya Round songs in the '89/'93 shows. One song from the new era I'm always surprised doesn't get more love is Walked Her Way Down. One of Neil's best in the last 10 years, I think, and never played since '07.

I've heard of "Sound of Truth": an early version of "Always Never Now." But I've never heard it. I've never heard of "I Can't Stand It." Would love to hear both of those. However, At any rate, I'm fairly certain they've never been released officially in any form and thus have been left off this list.

Really, when Phil left the Enz in 1977 for the nth and last time, who would have ever predicted him hitting the big time with an AUS #1 before the Enz themselves? And who would ever have had him writing and releasing new music in the naughties and 2010s? Whatever demons have possessed him, and whatever their cost, it has been far greater to him than to any of his fans. Fortunately, we receive the fruit but none of his torture.

The Roxy '87 version was originally slated for the box set in 2006 but was later added to the double CD edition of The Very Very Best Of Crowded House . It was also on various CD singles and The Other Enz. So it's out there and we didn't think it needed repeating. There's a good version on Farewell To The World too. Thinking of it now, perhaps we ought to have found another really good live version and put it on but by then we were concentrating on finding other things. The studio attempts...

So far, I've been searching mainly for Split Enz tapes (for Enzology) and Crowded House (for deluxe editions) but have come across some solo and Finn Brothers treasures which will be shared later - online if not in deluxe editions. No plans in place for those yet. More archival investigations to be done sometime.

I like Neil Fenn. Loved New Wave Spilt Enz and Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream it’s Over” got me through the deaths of two loved ones of mine years after it was a hit. But most true Fleetwood Mac Fans aren’t thinking about Neil and Tom Pettys guitarist. They’re thinking about how ****ty the band treated Lindsey Buckingham.

Well that's one way to look at events from the Lindsey point of view. Of course, there's always two sides to a story. The band side has been written about at length in terms of how Lindsey treated Stevie and the other band members over the years. Lindsey may have mellowed with age but his past behavior, if close to what's been documented, could easily justify firing him. Moreover, Fleetwood Mac has a long history of lead figures before Lindsey. In fact, Fleetwood Mac has more studio albums...

It is sad that you feel that way.
