Forty-years-ago the New Zealand band spent their Christmas holiday recording the album in Melbourne because that’s where studio time was the cheapest.

Fast forward to today and a remastered version is being released today. It’s thanks to the band's co-founder and keyboardist Eddie Rayner who worked with freshly digitised audio taken from the original album tapes.

Those tapes contain classics such as I Got You, Shark Attack and Poor Boy.

Seven Sharp co-host and big Split Enz fan Jeremy Wells went along to listen to some of the original tapes with Rayner in the video above.
