Double Happy Discography - Split Enz

Split Enz in their leaky boat

Eddie was one of the core members of New Zealand supergroup Split Enz from their begining in 1974 until their break-up in 1984. In fact, amongst the many line up changes the Split Enz made throughout its life, he and Noel Crombie were the only members that were present on every album. The albums by Split Enz that he was involved with are as follows, click on the link to see the Australian album covers.
