I'm very curious as to what might have delayed the 'official' announcement around the upcoming releases, as well as the logic behind a September release date.
Don't Dream It's Over was released in Oct. 86' and aside from Now We're Getting Somewhere having been released in Sept. 86', I don't really see the connection between the dates.
I'm still hopeful that with the official announcement, we'll get a surprise 2016-2017 Crowded House Tour. Maybe that's why Management and the band are being so cryptic?
In terms of my personal preference around the format vs. the content; at this point I just want to get my hands on all of the unreleased stuff +newly mastered versions of the classics we love + any new artwork that goes with it, and I don't want to have to spend $200 for everything. Am I asking for too much?
