I was in our crawlspace a little bit ago and ran across some videos I had forgotten about. What should I find but Crowded House on David Letterman to promote Together Alone. Big Grin My 5 year old, Meg, had me rewind "Locked Out" about 5 times and thinks that Neil is nice looking. What a treasure to find! It must have been about 8 years ago now. Well Time and Tide wait for no man/woman. Razzer

Believe it or not Together Alone is already 10 years old, internationally (released Oct. 18 1993), and will be 10 in North America I think in February or March.

It's a long story, but oddly enough I know the exact date I bought Together Alone (November 13, 1993). We had no internet back then, so word of mouth was the Together Alone wasn't coming out until 1994. On Friday night (the 12th), a buddy of mine called me and said that he had heard that a new CH import cd had already been out a month . I went nuts, and called the most reliable import music place in Philly, 3rd Street Jazz (may they R.I.P.) and they had 2 copies. Problem was they were closing for the night. I told them I'd be there in the morning.

I had to be up early to get ready for a state competition that day (why I remember this whole thing). I was teaching percussion for a high school marching band at the time, and the next day was the Pennsylvania state marching band championship (a big deal up there).

Anyway, a fellow CH fan friend and myself were waiting outside the door on 3rd Street when they opened the next day, and paid about $32 each for a copy. Eeker

Like I said it was a long story Roll Eyes , but a good day, as I got Together Alone a few months before most people in the US, and my group ended up winning the state championship later that night.
