Why no "She's Not There" on TOLM Deluxe Edition?

Dazz ·
While no one in their right mind would complain about the wealth of material on the second discs of these excellent deluxe editions, I'm left wondering they didn't put the Crowded House version of "She's Not There" on the Temple Of Low Men set. I'm guessing it was around that time that the track was recorded (when it was on "The Crossing" soundtrack album c.1989). It's quite a good version and a genuine rarity so was it overlooked or the powers-that-be (Messrs. Ansell and Finn) deemed it...

I believe Jaffaman said Neil nixed it.

Indeed. Neil didn't feel it was worthy enough so it was pulled. I respect his call but I disagree with him entirely. A classic case of the artist undervaluing the quality of his own work. I love CH's version and regret it's omission.

Okay I respect their decision but can't help feeling that sometimes it's best not to leave these decisions to the artists themselves! Especially when their version was great regardless of Neil's opinion. This is also a problem with the McCartney remasters bonus tracks. Grateful what we have but there are a lot of holes in the discography not covered by these "definitive" re-issues. It appears that a certain amount of revisionism is at play here!

I don't think Neil or anyone else ever promised these reissues would include EVERYthing they ever did. That was never the point. So I don't get where the "revisionism" accusation comes from. There were always going to be choices of which tracks made it and what didn't. The goal as Neil stated was, every track had to have a solid case for why it should be included. He also didn't want to spoil the myth of the band too much. There are several interviews at this point explaining the thoughts...

The revisionism accuisation comes from judging that NOW is something is not good enough to release when apparently it was good enough back then. In this case, there is nothing wrong with it at all except that Neil doesn't like it. So to ignore it, or anything that was previously issued, seems to be another way of saying it never happened and we only ever issued real good stuff that we liked. In some cases you can understand why a band would rather not acknowlege some excrement that they...

Wow. What about the many live tracks included on B-sides over the last 30 years? I'm pretty sure many of those aren't included with the reissues either. Is that also some insidious attempt to rewrite history? Sorry, but that's some supremely paranoid thinking, and I can't make much sense of it. Maybe Neil's viewpoint has changed in the course of 20 years? Does he need anyone's permission anyway? I don't see any justification for attaching sneaky motives to these decisions. I once had an mp3...

"NOW is something is not good enough to release when apparently it was good enough back then". I don't think this is what anyone has said. There is a bonus disc for each album, containing mostly never before heard writing, demos, home recordings, alternate takes. The aim for these sets was NEVER to round up all the stray tracks that appeared on CD singles, soundtracks etc. I'm amazed at the stunning opportunity fans now have to trace the development of songs from composing demos and early...

How about the younger fans though who may or may not know of this or other tracks' existence? Good deluxe editions shouldn't be just aimed at the long time fan who has bought any and everything concerning the band. I've bought plenty of the CD singles over the years for the live tracks (some good, some not as good) and face it, demos can and often be boring so to fill a disc up of nothing but demos can test one's patience. Be honest, how often are you going to play the demos of tracks? Good...

Wow. Slowpogo quick to jump to conclusions about paranoid thinking. The irony is delicious really. I'm just saying it would have been nice to include it for historic value if nothing else. And yes, it would have also nice to include all the B sides of the singles as well for the same reason.

This. Can't believe some are getting so worked up over a cover, that they already had, rather than Neil songs that we know exist and didn't get. Is it really hard to understand that maybe Neil wanted to focus on his own songs rather than a cover they did of someone else's?

I love "She's Not There" and it's a bit annoying that it appears to be the only CH studio track not included in the deluxe editions. However, it's also the only cover song CH has ever recorded in the studio so I can see how that might have resulted in its exclusion. But man, I think it's a great recording and totally fits the ToLM vibe better than any other non-album track in the CH catalog. It's really not that hard of a song to track down. The Other Enz CD is on Amazon for $27.

All I am going to do is dig out all the stuff that didn't make it and put it on my mp3 as a companion album. All the stuff is out there and not hard to find. I prefer to have an extra demo on there if I already have the other stuff.

"Just saying it would have been nice"? Well now you've walked things back quite a bit from claims of revisionism, and the band pretending tracks they don't like never even happened. That's some Fahrenheit 451-sounding stuff. But if "it would be nice for historic value" is your real intention I'm happy to stick with that.

Man, I adore "Dots on the Shell" but I've never been a big fan of the CH cover of "She's Not There"—in fact, it's my least-favorite Crowdies studio track by a huge margin. Then again, I'm not really a fan of the original either...

Ooh, no. Least favourite studio track is That's What I Call Love. Awful thing. Put me off getting into the band for years.

What would be great is if Try Whistling this is re-released in the same way and One Nil sometime soon. I can't decide which is my favorite, they both have good vibes about them for me. I am shocked at the lack of airplay One Nil got the year it was released, and finally got round to ordering One All so it will be interesting to hear the difference. Tokyo is a song I have now heard, as for the others not so much. So if you want to hear them you have to find the singles. Sinner and She will...

Are the seven Crowded House deluxe editions worth purchasing from their amazon uk prices for a massive Crowdie?

Well, are you in the UK? Or is this the only way you can get them? What IS the UK price? Nevermind, forget all that. Totally worth it.

So Crowded House-Together Alone are about 14 pounds each. Afterglow is 10 pounds. Time on Earth is 16 pounds. Intriguer is 5 pounds.

Great bargain on Intriguer. Some terrific tracks on the bonus. All of them do, really, though the first three have mostly demo/live versions of the album tracks, as opposed to "new" songs (outtakes). If you are a massive Crowdie, you won't be disappointed. Some of the real audiophiles on the board say the remastering of the original albums appealed to them; I can't tell much difference, as I mostly listen in my somewhat noisy truck, but I have enjoyed the bonus discs immensely. If the price...
