Crowded House celebrate 30 years in 2016, heralding an unprecedented re-issue program spanning their entire career, unlocking a wealth of rare material – personally selected by Neil Finn.
Each of Crowded House's six studio albums (and 1999's rarities album 'Afterglow') are now available as deluxe editions. Each body of work is expanded to include previously unreleased studio recordings, home demos, live tracks, b-sides and other rarities. Each Limited Edition CD boxset comes in deluxe format, with expandable CD packaging, encasing all the discs and a beautiful 36 page information booklet, a treat for any Crowded House fans.
The ‘Afterglow’ Deluxe edition sees the original 13 track album expanded to 27 tracks. The 36 page booklet boasts lyrics, rare photos, newly commissioned liner notes from UK journalist Pete Paphides and new interviews with Neil Finn and Nick Seymour.
The original album audio is sourced from the highest resolution transfer from the original tapes by Abbey Rd and extra tracks mastered from a variety of sources (stereo cassettes, 4-track cassettes, ¼” 8-track tapes, ¼” stereo tapes, ½” stereo tapes, 2-inch 24-track tapes, Hi-8 8-track video cassettes, DATs, CD-Rs and digital audio files) by acclaimed mastering engineer Don Bartley (Benchmark Mastering).
