Woodface - Capitol 1991
At first the 4 tracks from "Recurring Dream" seemed to be the highlights of the albums, but soon I realized that there was much more to go for. The Beatles inspiration is obvious on most tracks, not least on the great opener "Chocolate Cake" - "Rubber Soul" ala 1991.
Neil Finn's country-inspired "She Goes On" - is simply beautiful; reminds me of the best tracks of the Eagles' "Desperado". Drummer Paul Hester's "Italian Plastic" is refreshingly different - with its raw John Lennon approach. Of course the beautiful folkish "Four Seasons in One Day" has to be brought forward. A durable album that can be listened to again and again.
