Although Tim Finn has no convenient  Kitchen Sink collections like that which Neil Finn (and Jaffaman) have generously provided to us fans, this is a list is meant to collate  various Tim Finn or Tim Finn associated songs that have been released here and there in various forms in chronological.  

Due to the fact that there are no deluxe editions of Tim Finn albums as there are of Crowded House, this list of odds and sods is quite a bit longer than Neil's. I've also included prominent guest spots (I.e., where he has sung lead vocals) of other artists, as well as most of the Phil Manazanera Southern Cross songs, as for all intents and purposes Southern Cross is a duo album in my opinion. Songs that are out of print are also represented here. Finally songs performed by other artists that Tim Finn wrote are included. Songs in which he sang back up but did not co-write are not included.

While this is meant to be exhaustive, It is nearly certain I've missed something. Any new info is welcome! Note: some dates are speculative.

Great list Lance. Just looking at the Split Enz era tracks, you could add "Jolted" (from "Oddz & Enz") and "Murder" and "Something To Do" (both live from "I Like It Rare" series). Possibly also "Merry Christmas From The Frenz Of The Enz". Also "Hermit McDermit" (7") and "Mind Over Matter " (A&M "Frenzy") were earlier releases of Luton versions. Plenty of live versions of otherwise released tracks left off, but you may not have wanted to include these. "Another Great Divide" was technically a standalone single until its inclusion on Enz Of An Era.

I'll have to take my time to look over the solo list, but at first glance it looks pretty good.

Hi all, my first post here.

I've been reading this subject with great interest. I love making rarities compilations for my favourite artists and recently decided to re-research Tim's rarities and update my compilation discs.

Your information has been of great help. Thank you. I guess we all approach these things a little differently, my criteria is usually just to have everything where the artists vocals are prominent, and thats how I've been collating my Tim Finn discs.

In doing so I have come across a recording I cannot see mentioned elsewhere. On you tube there is a good recording of Tim singing Quasimodo's Dream on a TV show from 1990.

And I have happened across a full soundtrack of La  Donna Della Luna also on you tube. The song Flavour of Forever appears twice - the first time a short section - later a longer section completely incorporating the first - but with more overlayed soundtrack noise. I've managed to create quite a nice 2.5 minute version of the song by splicing the first appearance into the second , cutting out a lot of dialogue and car noise. The song seems quite average at first, but I've played it so much to get a good version of it , it has now become a favourite, I find myself humming it all the time.

Of other interest to some might be Tim’s backing vocal appearances on two tracks on Phil Manzanera’s 801 LP Listen Now.

Could I ask if anyone has an idea where I might find any of these 2012 recordings?

I do have a 3.55 recording of Tim doing a collection of White Cloud songs, they came from an online video , but they’re not complete and I don’t know the titles.



Cheers Ady

Fantastic find re "Quasimodo's Dream". That's definitely a new one for the completists.

Your other titles are all from "White Cloud". Except "Family Images" and "Into This Place" don't exist as far as I know - definitely not performed as part of "White Cloud", but likely refer to some of the spoken word component. It's a tragedy that the full "White Cloud" has not been released, as well as more from the "Ladies In Black", "Twelfth Night", "Vermilion Sands", "Forenzics" and "Star Navigator" projects. At least we got a version of "Fiery Maze".

Curious about "Quasimodo's Dream"; the other versions on youtube indicate it was a hit for the Reels. Did Tim write it? If not, odd that Tim would be doing a cover on a show where the host calls him one of the best songwriters around.

Also, has anyone heard any buzz about when Forenzics may be coming out?

And David, I agree that more of Tim's "projects" deserve more wide release. Not everyone can see a stage show in Australia. And the sound quality of Fiery Maze left a lot to be desired.

Ok, here's my latest effort. I've corrected mistakes I had made and included some things I had overlooked before. I also  added "Quasimodo's Dream" (even though it's unreleased, I have a few other unreleased but available curios here, as well.)

STill not really complete: there are some Split Enz live rarities and demos that are on YouTube that I haven't bothered to get into here. So still a work in progress, but very close to definitive, in my opinion.

I have not included songs that Tim contributed backing vocals on: there are actually more than a few  of those, but, I've tried to keep this to songs he either wrote, co-wrote and/or sang lead vocals on.

I've highlighted in red the additions to this latest version of the list.

Third Forenzics song on Eddie Rayner's Facebook page -- title????

Hi @Lance LaSalle. Tim had nothing to do with 'Quasimodo's Dream' (ie writing credits). I've got The Reels album and the lyrics were all written by the lead singer David Mason.

David Mason was also interviewed back in an Australian music documentary about the song and he admitted the lyrics were absolutely nonsense!! It was just nice background sounds with the synthesizer, which was all the thing back in 1981.
