Between A Rock And A Hard Place is the fourth and final studio album from Australian rock band Australian Crawl, originally released in August 1985 via Freestyle Records.

It was produced by English producer Adam Kidron (Ian Dury, Cabaret Voltaire, Aztec Camera). The album was initially released by Australian Crawl's own label Freestyle Records on vinyl and cassette and reached #11 on the ARIA album charts, remaining there for two weeks.

There were four singles lifted from the album, Two Can Play , You Told Me ,  Newly Weds In The Morning and Two Hearts.

Later the band was ready to split but had to go out on tour for the next year to pay off the enormous $400,000 cost of producing the album. On 27 January 1986, their final Melbourne concert was recorded and released as the live album The Final Wave in October. The band performed its final concert on 1 February at the Perth Entertainment Centre.

"We really enjoy Perth, and have a lot of friends there, so it was a conscious decision to play our final show there. Besides, everybody expected us to play the last show back in Melbourne, so stuff 'em."
— James Reyne, January, 1986

Along with The Final Wave, another album Phalanx preceeded Between A Rock And A Hard PlacePhalanx and The Final Wave showcased the live prowess of the band. Australian Crawl were inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 1996, two weeks before founding guitarist Brad Robinson's death.

In seven years, Australian Crawl had sold over a million records in Australia, with five of its albums and an EP reaching the Australian Top 5 Album Charts, two of which had been No. 1 hits. A cumulative total of eleven weeks at Number 1 on the Albums Charts places them equal fourth for Australian groups behind Skyhooks, The Seekers and Midnight Oil.

Check out the tracks Two Can Play , You Told Me  Newly Weds In The Morning and Two Hearts.
