Don’t Dream the Compiling is Over

with 3 comments

EMI has announced an October 26 release date for the cheekily-titled The Very Very Best of Crowded House, the latest compilation from the Australian pop masters.

The 19-track compilation (14 of which appeared on the last EMI comp, Recurring Dream: The Very Best of Crowded House (1996)) features tracks from all of the band’s albums save this year’s Intriguer. Additionally, there will be an expanded digital-only version with a rare live cut, a cover of “Throw Your Arms Around Me” by fellow Aussie rockers Hunters & Collectors which was released as a B-side.

Read the press release here and check the track lists for both versions after the jump.

  1. Why is the deluxe version digital only? Not cool.

  2. The deluxe edition at least gives more respect to Temple Of Low Men.
