Description

North, South, East, West…Anthology is the first solo compilation album to be released by New Zealand singer and songwriter Tim Finn. It was released in 2009 and the two-disc anthology features songs from Finn’s solo career, his time with Split Enz, Crowded House and the Finn Brothers.

The idea for releasing a collection of Tim’s songs originally came from John O’Donnell, the head of EMI Australia at the time. According to Finn, “It was his baby. He likes my work and it was his suggestion that we create an anthology. I liked the idea that it would take from all parts, starting with Split Enz and I only realised after the title was chosen that there are four parts to my career: the Enz work and Crowded House, the Finn Brothers material and of course my solo work. So that’s kind of neat, yeah, the musical north, south, east and west.”

There is a new song included on each of the two discs, and many of the older songs were actually rerecorded especially for the album. This collection does not signal the end of Tim’s career as he plans on releasing upcoming albums in the future but it forms a great compilation of his body of work to date.
