I've never posted an image to this forum before so I hope this works. My girlfriend was nice enough to indulge my Crowded House worshiping by painting this lovely cover for my 2CD Best of Crowded House Collection. I just thought I'd share it. =)

Absolutely LOVE it !!
Geez you were or are spoilt.

Hope you don't mind but here's an avatar
I made for you to use if you wish.


just save it to your computer to use it, then you'd have to load to an off site photo storer I think like you did to post your original photo.
Wow that cover is really fab - and what a great avatar too. Smiler

I really need to get one from the My Mistake video but of course I'm not computer-wise enough! Frowner
Excellent work, that is a beautiful painting. great work on the avatar there too, Kelly and I love the t shirt idea. some people are so creative Smiler
I realise I've taken my time to reply, but that work of art is AWESOME! If there was ever going to be a 2CD "Best Of" released, and Nick Seymour was somehow unavailable, that creation of your girlfriend's would be perfect.

I don't suppose there was a back cover or inside front or back cover done?

Also, what was the tracklist you selected? (So I can print the cover off & burn myself a couple of CDs!)
My girlfriend won't let me post the back cover because she says it stinks. She says she's going to paint a new one and let me scan that one.

1 I Walk Away
2 When You Come
3 Fall At Your Feet

14 There Goes God
15 In the Lowlands

17 It's Only Natural
18 Hole in the River
19 Time Immemorial

CD 2
1 Better Be Home Soon
2 Nails In My Feet
3 Whispers and Moans

16 Fingers of Love

19 Together Alone

I had to do a whole lot of volume adjusting to get these tracks to all sound good together. I also used the Crowded House Key Signature guide for some sections (made by someone else on this forum). Other songs just sounded good together. My only problem with this list is that it doesn't included "Catherine Wheels" or "Italian Plastic" but if I included every CH song then there wouldn't be much point in calling it a "best of" collection now would there? The second disc has way too much Together Alone on it as it is but I absolutely love the flow of CD1 so that's just the way it came out.

You can never have too much, "Together Alone"! Would your girlfriend consider making t-shirts? I would buy one too! I used to silkscreen my own shirts, so I know she can do it. Wink

Wow, that artwork is superb. I would definitely buy a T-shirt of that! Your girlfriend is clearly very talented and very cool - she's a keeper!

Nicely arranged tracklist, too - although I did always think of Better Be Home Soon as a closing song. Interesting choice to have it as the opener.
"Better Be Home Soon" does make a wonderful ending track but try inserting "Together Alone" or "Time Immemorial" in the middle and you'll see why they *had* to be at the end of their respective discs. I came to find that BBHS can make a good opener toom especially for the second disc. I like the way it flows in NAMF too.
Thanks for the all the compliments. Now that there's a new CH album coming out I'm going to have to totally re-work both this artwork and the track listing! Though I think my new goal is to make a best of Neil Finn two disc collection.

I'm afraid we don't have any plans to make t-shirts but anyone on this forum is welcome to take the image and make their own shirt out of it if they know how.

Thanks,
Adam & Sarah

Good luck with that. Smiler
I've been working on a best of NF CD collection of my own over the past few months. What was supposted to be only a 2 CD set is currently the playlists for up to a 6 CD set. Roll Eyes

Does that surprise anyone?Wink
First of all, that is an incredible cover. But the wierd thing is that before the intriguer cover was released, I imagined an album cover that looked exactly like the Woodface portion of this cover minus the face in the clouds. If that makes any sense...
