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!

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

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.

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.

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...

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.

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)

If you mean "My Time is Now", it's by Largest Living Things and is available on Other Enz: Split Enz and Beyond.

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

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".

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...

I totally agree. My "Crowded House 96 " is my favorite Crowded House record after Together Alone.

In addition to the 1996 CH album I shared previously, I also have a "bonus disc" to that album, which I call the Lost Tapes '96. It includes the following: 1. Most Unwanted (MTV UK live) 2. Instinct (demo from FTTW DVD) 3. Be My Guest (live on the Internet) 4. Not the Girl You Think You Are (demo) 5. Dots on the Shell (live acoustic performance) 6. Everything Is Good For You (demo) 7. Loose Tongue (demo) 8. Falling Star (live acoustic radio performance) 9. I Don't Know You (demo) 10. Spirit...

Finn Brothers Rarities?

The Pineapple Head ·
Are there any Finn Bros rarities that we know to exist? Any links to these if possible?

Apart from the various b-sides, probably the best one to get is the Visconti version of Everyone is Here, and maybe Mary of the South Seas which getting trickier to find even though it was released on Other Enz vol.1. Of course there are a number of bootleg concerts out there as well.

https://www.youtube.com/channe...5Or7-ffQhiLShd67bHyg Peter Green has posted early studio versions of at least 4 tracks done at Roundhead Studios 2003 from Everyone is Here, and non album tracks too! These are total gems.

Mary was also on a collection of Celtic music; don't remember the name and don't know if it is still in print. Maybe I can track it down.

Into the water from Tim’s Anthology is also half a Finn Bros song, with vocals from both Tim and Neil. And the version of throw your arms around me from the Tim Finn rarities collection. And the demo from Prodigal son. Since its a bside from the Finn bros its pretty rare I guess.

"Mary of the South Seas" can be found on the Common Ground album (an Irish inspired album) from 1996 (issued in Holland). There was also a 5 track promo sampler that also featured the track.

Also known as “Don’t Rely On”, it was recorded by Tim and Neil in 1990 for the Finn Brothers album before that project was abandoned and Tim joined Crowded House. The song was rewritten and re-recorded as “Always Never Now” for Tim’s Before and After album.

Thanks, Jaffman - is the "Always Never Know" still credited to both Tim and Neil on "Before & After?" OR should he, technically be credited, but decided to leave his name off it? Or was Neil never even co-credited for "Sound Of Truth?" Just curious. Thanks. Happy holidays to you and yours. xo

Thanks for the info - appreciated! I have always liked “always never now” now I know why!

I don’t have Tim’s album to hand right now to check the credits but Neil sang some verses on the original, which likely means it was co-written.

Thanks, Jaffa - I don't remember seeing Neil credited on Tim's version of "Always Never Know," but it's possible he/they decided to leave his name off it. I did check the wikipedia for and Neil's not credited. Maybe Tim changed it enough to warrant a credit, or maybe it was just their choice. I'd love to know the behind the scenes story. Hmmm.
