Feeding the Gods is one of my favorite albums of all time. But you have to prepared to rock out because it's a very energetic romp. After that, Say It Is So is my next favorite. Those two albums make a great one-two punch from the early aughts.

FTG is one of those “under different circumstances this would have been a big hit” albums, I think. And for all the great TF tracks on it, I still think Incognito is probably the highlight.

Although I don't listen to TF albums anymore, the ones I played the most were Escapade, Tim Finn and Before & After. I found Say It Is So to be unlistenable.

Before and After is early 90s Tim. There are a few trite moments and simple rhymes, but it covers a lot of good ground and includes "Persuasion", co-penned by Richard Thompson (middle 8 by Neil); one of his better singles imho. Say it is So was done with Wilco I understand, around 2000. It's got some grunge moments and has "Death of a Popular Song", which I still enjoy. I saw Tim on that tour and it was my first Finn show. I'm hardly an expert, and actually those are the only Tim I have. But...

Tim Finn and Before & After are good starting points for Tim’s discography.

This surprised me so I tried to look into it...the drummer on Say It Is So is Ken Coomer, Wilco's first (but not current) drummer. That was the only Wilco connection I could find.

Before & After is definitely a great album. My personal favourite Tim record is his self-titled album. Very underrated and deserved a lot more attention than it got at the time. Not Even Close is a beautiful song.

I agree with the others that Tim Finn is great, as is Before and After. Imaginary Kingdom is a strong album too. If you're not necessarily wanting to be completest to begin with, how about the anthology? While some of the songs are reworked (and CH/Enz), there's something of a selection across his solo albums save the most recent one (if memory serves), so that might give you a taste and help determine if there's an era that you like, since they're all quite different. Or, if you're a...

Completely agree with this. Tim’s albums are quite eclectic based on the era they were produced. I love many of the songs on Big Canoe but the production... well... is an acquired taste! I feel the same about Escapade. I would also either start at the beginning and make your way through them all or start with the Anthology and explore the albums based on the songs that most take your fancy.

Lost Fifth Album

The Pineapple Head ·
What's everyone's thoughts on the 'Lost Fifth' album of Crowded House which would have been released some time after 1994. Has anyone made their own version using rarities? Do you have an order? Which tracks would be the singles? I'd love to find out!

Around 100 CDs. Everything here is an official release. I‘ll even throw in some vintage CH tour shirts, never worn.

I don’t get the question. It’s confusing because they released Afterglow after TA, and then of course two more albums later.
Reply

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Steve Shealy ·
I don't find it confusing at all. Afterglow was a "leftovers" album released after they broke up, some of which is post-TA, plus other material from that period exists. An "album" could be made from that material (and a pretty good one at that). The other two came years later after they reformed.

Re: Lost Fifth Album

slowpogo ·
Thanks for explaining, but the subtlety of the question was not implicit to me. I was unsure if the OP even knew there were albums after TA. I know they recorded a few demos with Peter Jones (ie Help Is Coming) but I didn’t know there was enough for a whole album. Are you counting the tracks with Paul recorded for Recurring Dream as well? B sides from Try Whistling This that were originally conceived as CH songs (ie Tokyo)? The parameters still aren’t very clear to me.

Re: Lost Fifth Album

The Pineapple Head ·
Let me rephrase the question. If you were to create a 'Lost Fifth' track listing using demos, Recurring Dream tracks, B sides, rarities ect, what songs would you pick from that period of the band?

The lost 5th album was also raised in the topic thread below. https://www.frenzforum.com/top...lbum-finally-arrived Camus presented a good track listing of: Help Is Coming, Anthem, I Don't Know You, Taste of Something Divine, Spirit of the Stairs (York St Demo), Loose Tongue, Instinct (York St Demo) Everything Is Good For You, Not The Girl, bonus track Instinct (single version) Tokyo would fit pretty well onto that track list too, making it a 10 track album.... I wasn't aware it was...

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Steve Shealy ·
Different order, but mine are basically the same as Camus'. Used the studio demo of Stairs and the rough mix of Loose tongue. Some have suggested that Astro was considered, but seems like Jaffa or someone shot that down. Have not heard it suggested that Tokyo was considered.

I don’t know if Tokyo was ever officially considered or rehearsed by Crowded House, but I recall reading that it was written during the band’s tenure.

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Astro was kicking around at that stage, it was performed at a Finn concert in 1995/6 it's in one of the fan club CDs. Listening to the stuff recorded at the time there was some cracking material.

I am quite fond of my lost CH album, which I call Something Divine. I chose to imagine a word where some new songs are being worked on at the same time that outtakes from TA are being considered and that Paul is still a member of the band. 1. New castle Jam 2. Anthem 3. Instinct 4. Everything is Good For You 5. You Can Touch 6. A Taste of Something Devine 7. Not the Girl You Think You Are 8. My Time is Now (Paul Hester) 9. Convent Girls 10. Help is Coming 11. Spirit is the Stairs (studio demo)

I've made a playlist that could have been released in 1996 or so, it utiilizes a couple of outtakes from Together Alone, though. (And they do sound ever-so-slightly out of place.) But it's a great album full of fantastic mid-nineties rock. I actually really, really really like it and I think I would have just loved in 1996, which was right when I was getting into all things Finn. I even think it might have been a big international hit, it sounds so "of the times." It goes like this:...

SOOOO much good music from that time frame! Sad they called it quits in what seems in retrospect to be a very creative time for Neil. But at least this stuff is "out" and we can enjoy it, shuffle it around and create interesting playlists and "what ifs".

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Steve Shealy ·
Another thought just came to me, "Walk Tall" was from that period. Though it was a live cut, would have been interesting to see it developed and see what would have happened in the studio. Could have fit well on the "lost album".

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Mariola ·
To me, if these songs we know were on that "lost" album, it would be most probably second best album of CH, shortly after Together Alone, and maybe even with Woodface... Most of that songs are just brilliant, just to mention Anthem, Help is Coming, Taste of Something Divine, Everything is good for you, Spirit of the stairs are all just fantastic. Rest of them are also great...

At this time, I would reach for these records in order 1) Pajama Club - it feels alive and inspired; groove enters Neil’s writing with perfect collaboration 2) Out of Silence - deep, dark and topical. You can tell that the events of our time have hung heavily in Neil’s eyes and he expressed them with fragility and nuance. 3) The View .... - songs and production are tied beautifully; there’s a little bit of sameness that makes me forgetful of its beauty. I would not say worst, but these...
