Crowded House / 2CD deluxe edition

Crowded House‘s 1986 debut spawned the anthemic single Don’t Dream It’s Over, which reached number two on the US charts the following year. This sucess was consolidated with a further Stateside top ten hit, Something So Strong. The album will be reissued in November – along with the rest of the catalogue – as a 2CD deluxe edition and a new 180g vinyl pressing.

The new two-CD deluxe features a bonus disc full of home demos, including most of the tracks on the album and, curiously, Walking On The Spot which eventually found a place on 1993’s Together Alone (see full list below).

Crowded House will be reissued on 4 November 2016.

I bought all the releases and the are brilliant. The thing that gets me is the griping about them not containing extended remixes of any kind. These are released by the actual artist, and Neil made it very clear that he does not like the extended remix of their songs and chose not to include them. But what we got were raw and very rare cuts that would have never seen the light otherwise, and I am appreciative of that. I got the two previously released Tears For Fears boxsets that were absolutely loaded with extended remixes to the extreme, yet, people still found fault and felt that some remixes were left out. Going back to the Crowded House releases, they sound outstandingly great for their age and I loved the packaging as it made it quite the collectors item, not the usual norm, like fold open paper crap. I will never part with these releases and they have found a permanent home in my musical library.

Ray

Agreed! They are great collectors items (gorgeous packaging, unique) and are loaded with lots of great unreleased songs and demos. I hate remixes too so thank you Neil for not wasting space with remixes. Took me almost 2 years but finally have them all plus a few of the new vinyl (Woodfsce and Togeher Alone, my faves).

steven

can i take my cd and exchange it ? the cure did the right thing and put their amazing b-sides on a bo set without giving us the album tracks we have.cure “join the dots” is the way to do it .

Piper

Nice to see Crowded House’s most beautiful song,—Lost Island —finally make it to disc.

Koen Kroeze

They could sell these deluxe albums in a box-set, which will, ehh… múst have a bonus disc with the alternate and extended versions… to complete the releases of their backcatalog.

Or…
The original albums are not that long, plenty of space left, so why not put those missing versions on CD1?? Even though Crowded House never had ‘dance’ mixes I can imagine extended versions don’t fit/match on the demo-discs… (U2 made once that mistake by putting new dance mixes of New Year’s Day inbetween old demos and b-sides.)

Still 7 weeks before releasedate, so hopefully Neil (and his archivist) will read these comments and will “come to their senses”.

Wayne Klein

Nah, anything not on here according is something Neil doesn’t like so it doesn’t make it to album.

I can’t tell if these are normal CD size or the packaging is much bigger? I want to be sure they fit into normal CD shelves. Buying single albums in this large format takes up so much room. I’d prefer a box set.

mike

As much as i love this lot and the first four albums are superlative. I dont really care for demos, b sides and remixes should be an integral part of any reissues from this era. 25 quid also pricey. But sure many will enjoy which is the point!

Steve Marine

I’m a HUGE fan of 80’s-era remixes, so it’s always disappointing when artists like Neil Finn and Peter Gabriel dismiss these amazing remixes on their super deluxe editions. :(

Griffin

@Steven, thank you for the info’s!

Yep, what a disappointment! I would have ordered/bought this Deluxe Edition just for Don’t Dream It’s Over Extended Version! It’s not what you, as an artist, would like to do with the bonus disc but to give what the fans want! I don’t know World Where You Live Extended, but would love to listen to it though! They could call this the “Demo Edition” instead! If they don’t want my money I guess the record company of 12″/80’s Chilled will or the second hand seller will!

steven

Neil’s archivist has been in touch with many fans, and the archivist has said that Neil personally vetoed the extended remixes of Don’t Dream It’s Over and World Where You Live and the alternate mixes of Don’t Dream It’s Over, Weather With You and Distant Sun because they didn’t fit with what he wanted to do on the bonus discs. I was disappointed at those tracks not being on these reissues, BUT I’m extremely excited about there being a bonus disc for each and every reissue, and the originals that I have sound just great.

I’m keeping keeping my fingers crossed that one of the two recently recorded new songs that will appear on the bonus disc of Intriguer will be released as a single (pretty unlikely) and that those missing tracks will all appear on the single.

Thomas Braun

I mean for me, sorry

Thomas Braun

World where you live and don’t Dream it’s over: no Long Mixes at the First Deluxe Edition, so that is Not Deluxe for me. It’s a shame that they were ignored for this Edition.

Richard John

Agreed. I was hoping for these to be truly deluxe and that usually includes b-sides and remixes. While Demos can be rather interesting, I’d have loved to have the extended mixes on CD here.

Why would anyone want to purchase a 3CD set for 1 track?

Robert

Where is Don’t Dream It’s Over (extended mix)?

FM

No 5.1 dvd-audio in this de-luxe. It was one of the first dvd-a that I bought back then, like a decade ago!. I was even hoping of a 5.1 remix for some of the other albums for this re-issues. But the bonus discs look fantastic!

JasonC

It’s good to know that Walking in the Spot is on here, because of memory serves there was a live version on a Woodface CD single that seems to have disappeared with these reissues! It must’ve been a song was hanging around for a while…
