Crowded House ‎– Don’t Dream It’s Over (Extended Version) (12 “)

A classic from their debut album from back in 1986. Featuring the original trio on the cover which were New Zealander Neil Finn (vocalist, guitarist, primary songwriter) and Australians the Late Paul Hester  (drums) and Nick Seymour (bass and sleeve designer)

Produced by keyboardist Mitchel Froom it is a lot more synthy as I remembered it, especially on the Extended version, mixed by Tchad Blake. A definite version.

As a bonus you get the album closer track “That’s What I Call Love” with shades of Duran Duran.

The group hold the distinction of being the only New Zealand band to have made it to #2 in the US Billboard Singles chart, with this single.
