When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Split Enz “Time and Tide.”

Today’s Cool Album of The Day is Split Enz, “Time and Tide.”

It never ceases to amaze me that Split Enz, nor the follow up band Crowded House has never hit it big here in the States. What the heck are our radio station music directors thinking?

“Time and Tide” had many, many AOR friendly tracks.

‘Dirty Creature, Giant Heartbeat, Never Ceases to Amaze Me’ or at least ‘Six Months In a Leaky Boat.’ All those songs could have been prominent on our airwaves!

Another great song is Sandy Allen, at the time the world’s tallest woman. A song written about the bands meeting with her in the green room when they were both appearing on the Tom Snyder Show.

Most of the music here was written by the Finn Brothers, Tim and Neil.

Besides the brothers, other members of the band included. The great Eddie Raynor on keys. Nigel Griggs on bass, and Noel Crombie on drums.

The 1982 release was produced by Hugh Padgham and the band members. Hugh has done some great work from everyone from Genesis, XTC, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Yes and Frank Zappa etc. Nice resume dude!
