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...

This looks great. I was skeptical at first but I think it would work. However some may feel short changed buying another Woodface after the Deluxe Edition.

A fair point about buying another version of Woodface so soon after the reissue. But in this day and age of boxed sets being released for classic albums I think it's more than justified. It also would be half a decade later. Personally I would have liked these deluxe versions to be staggered for release at the 30th anniversary of each album. It would have created more of a sense of event for each one. And by 2021 a Woodface boxed set would have been a much easier sell. Having said that I'm...

I wish there was more information like this out there. So fascinating to hear both his experiences and his opinions given that he was so closely involved with the recording evolution. It's just eye opening to hear how much these songs go through. Those of us who don't record hit records for a living are easily unaware of the labor and debates that go on behind the scenes. The band certainly doesn't just show up, record a song, and go home. It's hard to imagine, for example, Paul coming in to...

It'd be interesting to know how much of the so called Still Life demos are recorded with Stuart Ellison and which were recorded earlier and which he then added parts to. There are versions of "Persuasion" and "Funny Way" on there and "Persuasion" in particular is quite different from the album; but frankly, it's terrible in comparison with the finished Mark Hart-produced song to my ears -- but Stuart doesn't seem to like the album version at all. I could not disagree with him more. Different...

Thanks so much for sharing this interview! I'm particularly fascinated with the comments about "In Love With it All" and "Strangeness and Charm," which always sounded like Woodface outtakes to my ears. So it's pretty interesting to me that Ellison seems to think those songs were part of what Crowded House was doing at the time (even if Nick and Paul weren't involved). Jaffaman, can you shed any light on that? Were those two Finn Brothers songs ever considered for Woodface? What's the scoop? ...

While discussing the Woodface album at the Steve Hoffman forum I came across someone's name in the Woodface CD booklet I knew nothing about. I wondered who this Stuart Ellison is who is credited with "additional keyboards". I tracked him down online and found out he was happy to partake in an interview. I realised that in his capacity as engineer at Tim's Melbourne Periscope Studio he had a significantly larger role in the creation of Woodface than previously known. So, as a fun pastime,...

After we had discussed the recording of Woodface we spent some time talking about the songs Tim recorded during that same time but set aside for his solo projects - mainly his next solo record Before & After. We also returned to discussing the unused version of Crowded House's "It's Only Natural" with sampled drum beats. Because part 1 of the interview is more about Woodface I posted that in the Crowded House forum. Part 2 which is mostly about the demos for Before & After fits...

How would you like to see Crowded House perform a Woodface 30th Anniversary tour in 2021 to promote a Woodface box set? For anyone interested, I wrote up the full details of my concept here , and even created some basic concept cover art for the box.

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