Neil YardleyI've had a association with the Icehouse fan-scene since the 80's... Not many of us in the UK! That whole album is excellant but Reeds' All Tomorrows Parties take the prize for me. I'm sure Iva's stated before you still keep in touch Jim ;) Was this CD the inspiration for Neon Lights?

Allan McKenzieAm a huge Icehouse fan, and a brilliant version. What an ultimate concert it would be if Simple Minds and Icehouse were to perform together!! That would be a dream come true for me

Danny RiceLove Icehouse, but no way as good a version as the Minds. Seen the Minds many times but never seen Icehouse. A support tour would be great. Maybe the Minds could do a cover of "Hey Little Girl"

Moonie PanczelIt's one of the most beautiful covers ever. Icehouse are of another stratosphere. Such a brilliant band. Among the "atmospheric" bands. Would like to hear them collaborate with you guys...as I think I said last year.

Philip William Adams...it's good.... However, this song (like so many) is brought to life by the prefect beat of the Big Bloke on the drums.....the original vocals aren't half bad either B|

Martial BoffyVery nice, although no version will ever quite beat the happiness of hearing it when it first came out. It had been a while.

Michelle Croswell-PluckeI saw Icehouse at the Enmore, Sydney a few months ago, Hubby & I used to see them at the local clubs in the 80's..the guys have still got it & a few very talented new members too, such talented musicians. If there is to be a combo tour, please, not the Lyric Theatre, the sound is terrible! (We saw SM there a few years ago)

Janene JellieHave always been a fan of Ice House and Iva Davies' dulcet tones - a great version but I would argue that it was better than the original! Also, thanks to the link, I've just spent a happy 45minutes or so listening to songs I haven't heard for a year or two, a wee wander down memory lane, if you will. Much appreciated.

Viraj ThomsonI saw Icehouse a year or two back in a small venue in Brisbane (Aus) & Iva and the guys were on fire. Great interaction with the audience including tales of London days in the early 80s - "great days" said Iva.
