I have to say that I prefer the extended remixed version 'Halcyon + On + On' which appears on this album. It was a reasonably big track and ended up on l...

I would have assumed True Colours by Split Enz would at least be on here (even though it's my least favourite release of theirs...), but I feel like Dizrythmia, Time and Tide and Waiata/Corroboree all deserve a placement.

Great Band. So many good songs. 'Don't Dream It's Over' has that nice melancholy / nostalgic feel to it while 'Weather With You' always seems like it's exact opposite - joyful and upbeat.
