Happiness Finally Came to Them is a studio album by Ralph Carney, Daved Hild and Kramer, released in 1987 through Shimmy Disc.[2] It was the first album to be issued under any of the three musicians' names, serving as both Carney's and Kramer's launching point for their respective solo careers. Although most of the songs are credited to all three musicians, Hild served as the album's primary songwriter and lyricist.[3]
