Vinyl wishlist

Only have the international edition on LP right now.
Records have been coming back in recent years although not quite as en masse as decades past but still making headway.  Later titles and editions are rarer and/or more expensive though I found a few of those.  Some titles I don't have on LP but I do on CD or even tape and others I don't have at all just yet so here's what I hope to find in the months to come:

Split Enz

Nambassa Festival, 1979.
As I scan across the Commonwealth I decide to close in on New Zealand and take up Split Enz.  Hearing "I Got You" on the Tannoy at the gym the other week got me to look for them on one mp3 site to find them not there so I go to another to add to the first one and I start to have a listen to them as I can relate to the prog vaudevillian sound they had in the mid-to-late '70s and the new wave after that up to the mid-'80s.  I knew Crowded House spun off from there though I heard of them first.  Split Enz are yet another band overlooked on my shores as I was lucky to find True Colours on US CD after having heard the PA and it just grew from there.  Getting even one of the albums would be a feat without resorting to going online.  That album I had to order online for you-know-who as I looked through my old e-mails knowing I sent it way out there a few years ago.  I hope to get out of town and find something (lucky I saw the other band at the shop last week).


Fish: Tall enough to manage himself!
From Col Tom Parker to Brian Epstein to Peter Grant talent managers have become as famous as their clients.  Some have gone through them like water (Yes come to mind) and others never say who takes care of them.  Fish (pictured) told me after falling out with Marillion manager John Arnison when Fish left the band in 1988 and later Yes, Asia and a-ha manager Brian Lane, the 6'4" Scotsman decided to manage his own career and has Kelvin "Yatta" Yates sort out the live side of things.  Steve Hacketts site said in an e-mail response he is now self-managed after firing longtime manager Billy Budis.  Elton John took his ex John Reid to court after discovering millions of pounds squandered.
