Cheeeek that out dude. Bought this years ago as Waiata. Much better than True Colors. So after 30 years, nothing about this album has worn thin.
Put the two Finns together and you almost get perfection. Buy them on Amazon. Finalizing my collection of vinyl and cassette to digital media. Amazon makes it very affordable. High ranked vendors not only have quality merchandise but ship quickly too. Format: Audio CD. Corroboree as the album is known in Australia is the followup to Split Enz' triumphant record "True Colours". Although "True Colours" deliberately had different colour combinations on the cover, Noel Crombie was shocked when America decided to have their own colour combinations for "Corroboree".
Appropriately enough, the opening track for this album is called "Hard Act to Follow". That famous phrase just about sums up the pressure Split Enz were under to produce something that matched the commercial success of "True Colours". To satisfy the record companies, the band were obliged to make History Repeat. Although "Corroboree" failed to achieve the same level of success as "True Colours", this is still a good album.
It reached No. For me the stand-out song is "History Never Repeats". All the songs are good, really. The album concludes with a pleasant instrumental by Eddie Rayner called "Albert of India". If Split Enz were not satisfied with "Corroboree", they would surpass themselves with their next album "Time and Tide". I won't get into the debth and with of this album, I just have to a write a few lines and say that this, to me, is one of the best albums of its time.
I absolutely love Split Enz, the two Finn Brothers and the whole wibe and feel of this band, in it's many incarnations. The production is lush, befitting a major act, but the pots of money thrown at the songs don't disguise their compositional thinness.
Most of the ENZ's quirkiness is smoothed away by the lavish arrangements, and the same-ness of the sound rob the tracks of their personalities. Gone are shark attacks and radio romances with aliens: this is all about dancing and kissing and laments for unrequited love. Pop is just like every other form of music: it needs to be good to hold the listener's interest. This isn't, and it doesn't.
Waiata Corroboree in Australia is usually seen as an acceptable, yet somewhat less original, safe follow-up to Split Enz's breakthrough album, True Colours, released a year earlier. In New Zealand the album reached number 3. Time And Tide. Both were hits in Australia, reaching 6 and 2, with the album reaching 1. Time and Tide also topped the album charts in New Zealand. Its video was shot in a zoo and featured Tim Finn with an afro; the band now considers the shoot embarrassing.
The song "Fire Drill", recorded for Time and Tide, was eventually left off the final release and instead became a b-side. The band opened many live shows with the song in the year of the album's release. A number of copies of Time and Tide in the UK featured a remixed version of the band's earlier release Frenzy. The album was re-released in along with all of Split Enz's studio album catalogue. Some albums were rearranged, reordered or adjusted; however Time and Tide was left in the same order as the original with only remastering the tracks.
True Colours. True Colours, the fifth album released by New Zealand band Split Enz, was their first major commercial success. Released in , the album featured more mature songwriting from Neil Finn. Credited to him is the album's New Zealand and Australian 1 single, "I Got You", which also broke them internationally.
The US release of the album featured "Shark Attack" and "I Got You" in reversed positions due to the latter's success on the single charts. St Ives, N.
