    Liner Note Author: Tim Finn.
    This compendium of the New Zealand band's best material includes Neil Finn's "I Got You" which went to number 12 in the UK when it came out in 1980. Neil would later go on to form Crowded House, while his brother Tim would release several solo albums and join Neil on his band's album WOODFACE in 1991.
    This collection is Beatles-influenced New Wave--the keyboard and all its sonic capabilities was somewhat de rigueur for many bands in the early '80s, and is heavily featured here. Besides the aforementioned "I Got You," other great tunes include "Six Months in a Leaky Boat," the simple, anger-motivated "I See Red" and the sweetly romantic "Message to My Girl." Much as with early Beatles, these songs are simple, direct, short, and uncomplicated.
