Re: Enz live footage wanted to trade

1979? Neil's 27th? I don't think so. Try TIM's 27th maybe... (I refer you to the opening lyrics of "Haul Away" on the album "Time and Tide" for confirmation...)

It saddens me a little that Tim and Neil aren't considered in world terms. When the Greatest Albums lists come out I see some awful entries. Where's Time & Tide, Whistling This? Tragic. But then, if they were bigger how could I get to see them in the smaller venues I do now?

Re: What Split Enz live material is available on cd?

I have been looking as well for DVDs of Split Enz. My brother has a couple of VHS tapes of them playing most of the stuff from Time and Tide record LIVE on stage, in Melbourne I think. It might have been from an MTV concert (circa 1981). It is one of my favorite concerts to watch on TV. He also has a tape of videos from the early days to the last days that someone (MTV?) compiled and aired on Cable TV in Tulsa, OK. They are both prizes, but I can't find any copies anywhere...so I am going to...

Yes Tracy, there is also a live video of the Hamilton, Ontario concert from the Time and Tide tour. I got a copy from a guy out west years ago. I think his company is Pandora's Box. I got it along with loads of other CH video stuff! It may be worth looking for. The concert is really fun. Jill

Bean 1404, I think you jogged my memory, I do believe it was Ontario on that "Time and Tide" tour concert. I'm not sure, but if you have seen it, Tim does one handed push-ups on " Nobody Takes Me Seriously Anyway:" And he does "Shark Attack" , "I See Red" etc, ...wears a shirt with puffy sleaves and a captains hat....Is that the one? Because that's the one my Brother has, which I would like to burn on DVD for my own personal viewing. But bootleg is better than nothing. See ya in Te Awatamutu!

Re: Pre Release Try Whistling This

The Ligature ·
There were subtle differences in 2 of the tracks - "Sinner" had a different mix, and sounds subtly different from the eventual single release. As I recall it's longer too. "Astro" has a voice (presumably Neil's) counting the track in at the start. The studio version of "Sprit Of The Stairs" is indeed included, and from what I remember, the only other difference is that "King Tide" is listed with it's original title "Low World", although the song content is identical.

Re: SplitEnz Vancouver show what year?

Split Enz (with Neil) toured Canada in October 1980, July 1981, and May-June 1982. "Time and Tide" was released in early 1982. But, if you saw a 1982/Time & Tide concert it obviously couldn't have been Neil's "first tour." Hope that narrows things down a bit!

Re: Tim Finn Question

I've never found clips to be a good way of getting to know and album. For one thing, you're getting 30 second snippets of a song -- a bit of a verse here, or a bit of a chorus. Is that enough to make a decision? And secondly, the sound quality is usually awful too, making what is a fantastic song sound like mud. May I suggest you just take the plunge and pick up a copy of TIME & TIDE or TIM FINN? Or if you really have to, use a file-sharing program like WinMX and see what's out there?

Hi Jeremy, Thanks for this great thread: 1. Split Enz: I'm more of a Neil/CH/Finn Bros fan, but I added this to my collection anyway. I have watched it several times and am delighted with it. Although I was a SEnz fan in the early 80s--I wasn't aware of anything prior to Waiata, True Colours and Tide and Time or anything after it. This DVD has given me a greater appreciation for SEnz and has encouraged me to re-listen to all the CDs. I now have several new firm favourites due to this DVD 2.

"Something to Do" is from the demo sessions recorded by Nigel, Noel and Tim at The Music Farm in 1981, pre "Time and Tide." ("Remember When" was taped then.) It's one of a trilogy of songs about home DIY and fitting into society. Similar in tempo and subject matter (kinda) to "Small World" but more light hearted. Lots of overdubbed harmonies from Tim. Be warned: "Something to Do" is a charming track and very catchy. It's been stuck in my head for the last few days. Jaffa
