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 masterpieceof 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.
