$40.00

Product Description

2016 vinyl reissue

Formed in Australia and led by New Zealand born 

Neil FinnCrowded House shot to fame with massive

hits like "Don't Dream It’s Over," "Fall at Your Feet"

and "Weather With You." After playing their farewell

show in 1996, the band reformed more than 10 years

later to release the albums Time on Earth (2007) and

 Intriguer (2010). Crowded House's third studio album,

1991's Woodface, spawned a remarkable following

with its hit singles "Weather With You," "Fall At Your Feet,"

"It's Only Natural" and "Chocolate Cake" which wonderfully

underpinned the band's commercial heights while still

maintaining their effortless style and attitude. Cut from the

original analogue tapes at Abbey Road Studios and

reissued here on 180g vinyl in celebration of 

Crowded House's 30th anniversary.

The third studio album released by Crowded House in

July 1991. New Zealand's Crowded House made one of

the best, and most enduring, pop/rock albums of the

1990s with its 1991 smash Woodface. It's a masterpiece

of emotive songwriting, evocative singing and exceptional

playing. Singer/songwriter Neil Finn had moved way out in

front of 1986's "Don't Dream It's Over," the biggest hit

Crowded House ever landed in America.

It had an awkward gestation. The album, the trio's third,

was close to being mastered when Capitol Records

president Hale Milgrim told Finn and his bandmates,

and Crowded House's producer Mitchell Froom, that it

simply wasn't good enough to put out. He suggested

they go back into the studio.

At the same time, Finn and his older brother Tim (both

of them had been cornerstones of the Kiwi new wave

group Split Enz) were writing together for a side project.

Neil asked Tim if Crowded House could have these new

songs for the revised Woodface; Tim agreed but insisted

he become a full-fledged member of the band.

"The lines between what was going to be a Finn Brothers

record and a Crowded House record became very blurred

," Neil Finn told a writer in 1993. "And in the end we decided

it was better to try and make one good album than try and

split yourself between two, and not do justice to either."

That's how "Weather With You," "It's Only Natural," "Four

Seasons in One Day," "There Goes God," "How Will You Go"

and three others came to be on what should have been

Crowded House's breakthrough album - featuring stellar,

Everly-esque brotherly harmonies from Neil and Tim, Woodface

is absolutely brimming with first-class, catchy songs, with

gorgeous melodies and that unmistakable Finn melancholy.
