Flowers by Icehouse (Musical group)( Recording )

9 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debut album was released in 1980 when the band was known as Flowers. 2011 is the 30th Anniversary of the name change from Flowers to ICEHOUSE, an event driven by the band's expansion into overseas territories where the Flowers moniker was already in use. The 30th Anniversary Edition is a lovingly compiled, vastly expanded edition featuring a wealth of previously unavailable material. Boasting the singles 'We Can Get Together', 'Can't Help Myself', 'Walls', 'Icehouse' (and later 'Love In Motion') - the ICEHOUSE album released back in 1980 went on to become one of the most successful debut albums of the era, spending over 45 weeks on the chart and achieving accreditation of over 4x platinum within months of its release. In addition to the original studio album (remastered, with 3 bonus tracks), this 30th Anniversary Edition will feature a 19-track, 75 minute disc of live recordings recorded for radio broadcast in different territories between February 1980 and November 1981. As well as the renditions of all tracks from the ICEHOUSE album, the Live disc includes incendiary versions of Iggy Pop's 'Funtime', The Easybeats' 'Sorry', John Lennon's 'Cold Turkey; and Ultravox's 'Man Who Dies Every Day'. Also included in this stunningly presented 3 Disc set is a DVD of exceedingly rare live footage. The DVD includes 5 live tracks from Flowers appearance at Sweetwaters Music Festival (NZ) in 1981, an interview with Iva Davies prior to that performance and a collection of vintage Countdown TV appearances from the era. The set also includes previously unseen photographs, images and memorabilia - in addition to brand new liner notes from Iva Davies

Meltdown by Icehouse (Musical group)( Recording )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A remix album is a slightly more refreshing alternative to the cumbersome greatest-hits packages. Eight years after the remix album Full Circle, Meltdown offers various takes on Icehouse classics by the cream of Australia's DJs. Great efforts are made to update the Icehouse sound to a dance rather than art-obsessed generation and, as Iva Davies was one of the first Australian electro-pop pioneers, he is better placed than most for the treatment. However, only a few of these pieces really succeed. Most striking are the new "Lay Your Hands on Me" with Speed of Light and the reincarnation of the band's first single, "Can't Help Myself," beautifully reconstructed as a dreamy trance-like anthem by beXta, as is Ivan Gough and Colin Snape's "Cafe Latte" mix of "Don't Believe Anymore." "Street Cafe" and Skipraiders' take on "Electric Blue" also translate well, the latter's poppy-ness actually sounding more like Icehouse now than its shameless original '80s rock version. There are casualties, though, and the Germanic disco thump of "Hey Little Girl," "Icehouse" itself, and the normally fabulous Josh Abrahams' dark variant of "Crazy" don't bode well at all. Interesting but for diehards and dance slaves only. Kelvin Hayes
