The Roxy '87 version was originally slated for the box set in 2006 but was later added to the double CD edition of The Very Very Best Of Crowded House . It was also on various CD singles and The Other Enz. So it's out there and we didn't think it needed repeating. There's a good version on Farewell To The World too. Thinking of it now, perhaps we ought to have found another really good live version and put it on but by then we were concentrating on finding other things.
The studio attempts couldn't compare with the spirit of the live versions and Neil didn't want to include them. Tim put the 1990 Finn Brothers version online a few years ago.
