Rayner was the obvious outlier — he knew how to play early on. I’ll have to go back and listen for Griggs on bass. The Finns sorted it out late in the game. Tim found his voice on Time and Tide. Conflicting Emotions marks Neil’s debut as a capable guitarist, but I don’t think he breaks through as a singer until Crowded House. Hester was a fine drummer.
