i just got the new crash test dummies cd “oooh la la” & the optigan was used on it as well. also printed optigan website on back cover

The disc used in Crowded House’s “Chocolate Cake” (from the Woodface album) is “Singing Rhythm” and can be heard at about 0:50 seconds into the song. Neil Finn discussed his love of the Optigan in a documentary called Great Australian Albums (Woodface) made for Australia’s SBS television.
