Shootin’ The Tube:: 25 Years Ago – Split Enz "Time And Tide"

So the reunion of Crowded House is at full speed and has brought me to thinking of almost all things Neil Finn.  This in turn brought me back to listening to some of my old vinyl LP’s and cassettes of the legendary Split Enz. I had to break out one of my favorite LP’s “Time And Tide”. I still remember seeing the band for the first time in the early 80’s via an MTV Concert late at night. It was there that I first heard the songs of Neil & Tim Finn…of course you had “I Got You”, “One Step Ahead” – but then from their then new LP “Time And Tide” you had “Dirty Creature”, “Hello Sandy Allen”, “Six Months In A Leaky Boat” etc. It was that little glimpse which led me to Neil’s later band Crowded House a few years later when I saw them live on The Joan Rivers Show…but thats a whole other story…25 years on and Split Enz’s “Time And Tide” Rocks…youtube’s got the clips!
