Re: Split Enz DVD thoughts

I think they could have saved a lot of space by not doubling even tripling the sound bytes in the DISCOGRAPHY. What I mean is they had 3 best of albums and ALL the songs were re-listed as sound bytes, so what you have is many samples of the same song scattered throughout which is pretty pointless I think IMHO. I don't know how much DVD space that takes up but if it takes up a lot I'd MUCH rather wish to have all the video clips in like I Don't Wanna Dance, Next Exit & Never Ceases To...

Hey Campus no sadly ABC/Countdown threw out/erased about 80% of their stuff many many years ago, the 'No Bother to me" that some fans have came from our own library...it's just a bad quality video that I own and fading fast. Sad though as so much cool Countdown stuff is gone forever. Some of the Anniversary stuff is good, some can't be used as the sound recording didn't work out....my main fear is because it was filmed by Stratford Productions would it be in the hands of the liquidators too-...

Re: $30 for a single? $80 for a bootleg?

I'm an ebay addict and I've seen fan club CDs sell for over a $100 Australian. I can't provide you with proof but I swear I'm telling the truth. Proof can be found to frenz here who can find a "completed listings items page" LINK on ebay that describes/has an inventory of past ebay items sold and their final prices. The purpose of this is for you to check the VALUE of any prospective items/cds/books/video games etc et al you wanna sell.

Yeah I agree 100%, think it's why I really dig what Bic Runga does- guitar, songwriter, vocalist....NZ people are so lucky with Bic doing this tour, wish we had the budget to do that one would of been fun. Tim has been doing a lot of swimming over the last few years and I started recently and it seems to allow you an extra surge of energy during the day.....he usually goes out for a swim when we are on the road. He still amazes me during I See Red after all these years.... PG

Don't be ashamed! I have the cd too, and it's a lot better than people would think it is. I forced a friend of mine to listen to it, and she really loves it even though she refuses to watch the show. I cant wait until next season when Spike get's his soul back! I think it's going to be a much better season than the last one - did anyone else get a bit sick of Buffy sleeping with him and then getting mad at him and doing it all over again?!

Yep, the track on Other Enz is the same Finn/Judd composition, but it's not a genuine Split Enz recording as such. It was released as the B-side of a 1980 single by Graham Brazier (ex Hello Sailor) and credited to "A Ripper Bunch of Blokes." The "blokes" who played on the recording included Mike Chunn, Eddie Rayner, Rob Gillies, and Mal Green. Part of the tune was later used in "I Wouldn't Dream of It" on True Colours .
