During the song, the band breaks down (due to Paul missing a beat or so) and then they pick up the pieces to create something magical.
That live disc is amazing in itself. The first 4 tracks off it are from Newcastle's Civic Theatre (all 4 members regard it as their best concert ever). I went to see the Finn's at the same venue 2 weeks ago where they made concert references to that night. All I had running through my head that day was "Good Evening Newcastle, what a great theatre this is, what a great day its been!.... what a great beach you have".



That Double CD is my childhood from age 10-18

I've known Don't dream it's over and Weather with you for years but didn't really but their albums until the "U2 break" between ATYCLB - Bomb.

Since then I bought Temple of low men, Woodface , Crowded house, Afterglow and that DVD with Johnny Marr, Eddie Vedder and two guys from Radiohead.
Am looking for Together alone but no luck so far.

Neil Finn has a great talent for writing pop songs, possibly the best that I've heard next to Fab four. Lovely voice too.
Favourite songs Better be home soon, She goes on and I love you Dawn.

My favorite.. I do not have Afterglow but always wondered if its any good.

And the dvd with Eddie and the others rock. The two songs with Neils son is a fun addition to the dvd.

Most of the Finn songs went onto Woodface (mostly because they were the best ones & partially to validate Tim's inclusion). The ones that didn't I believe went onto Tim's next solo CD "Before & After".

The Crowded House songs that didn't make the cut (which was all except for Fall At Your Feet, Fame Is, She Goes On & As Sure As I Am) were basically shelved. Recurring Dream got pulled out live on the Woodface tour a lot, a few other got a run once or twice...a couple become B-Sides.

Until Afterglow. That tied up all the lose ends (I Am In Love, Lester & Private Universe from the TA sessions) and placed all the obscurities together into what I consider a very free flowing georgous album. There are notes in the Afterglow booklet about the songs themselves.

I think I should add My Telly's Gone Bung & Anyone Can Tell were on the Woodface sessions as well. And I couldn't find Spellbound tonight bro, I'll have a look tommorow.

Crowded House always sounded better live. Maybe because I didn't grow up with them, I always felt that the production on their earlier albums sounded very canned and 80s. The only time I think that the production really matched the songs was Together Alone––one of my favorite albums ever and definitely the perfect beach/summer album. I think that had something to do with Youth, who produced the album and later went on to do the brilliant "Urban Hymns" with The Verve. It's a shame Together Alone is out of print in North America. I was able to find a used copy, which is how I got into it. Recurring Dream's Live album is
. I've tried to find some of their other live albums, but no such luck (something called Town and Country?).

Neil Finn's solo work isn't immediately as accessible as his work with CH or SE, but he's done some great songs regardless..."Turn and Run," "Driving Me Mad," "Try Whistling This." Would love to see him live...

I watched it tonight.
In the end the weather conditions were a bit different than they were in my mind. Still, Weather With You was pretty good, with Neil conducting the crowd. Seven songs of that set were broadcast:
- In My Command
- Fingers Of Love
- Private Universe
- Don't Dream It's Over
- There Goes God
- Distant Sun
- Weather With You

Yeah, Crowded House was great...

Popmartijn, that sounds like it was a really cool concert. Weird about the weather that day, too-that's freaky !

I haven't really seen much in the way of live stuff of the band. The only big one that really comes to mind is the "Sister Madly" video off of the "Dreaming" DVD, and then I've found a few other clips from various shows they appeared on. But they sure did come across great live in the few clips I've seen . And I've heard a few live versions of their songs, too-someone even sent me a CD one time of their concert at Daytona Beach from spring break of...1987, I believe it was. Really good show-it's particularly neat, 'cause they go from "Hole In The River" into "Don't Dream It's Over", and the way "Hole In The River" ends and segues into "Don't Dream It's Over" is just flat out cool. I understand there's video of it, too-I'd love to see that.

And blueeyedgirl, heh, yeah, "When You Come" gets quoted a lot for sexiest lyrics, too .

As I indirectly mentioned in my last post, the weather wasn't actually playing along as I thought it was. Although it did stop raining/pouring right after There Goes God (with Neil, at the start of the song, even saying that they needed divine intervention to make the rain stop), the sun didn't come out for Weather With You. Then again, you can say that the sun did came out for that song, as it uplifted the whole audience, who didn't mind the (slight) rain anymore, etc.
Yeah, it was good to watch that video again.
(especially since right before them there was the performance of the Urban Dance Squad )

Oh, okay. Didn't catch that in your last post.

Wow, I'm amazed! This is like discovering there actually is native human life in Australia.

Ah, awesome, thanks for the information! I need to put on my copy of Afterglow sometime soon - unfortunately, the case was shattered on the way back from the US! The sole victim of my trip too.

But ... Private Universe is on the copy of Together Alone you sent me, so ... how come it's on Afterglow too?

The PU on Together Alone is known as the "Youthed-Up Version" with all the effects & atmospherics. The Private Universe on Afterglow is an alternate mix - essentially just Neil & an acousitc. Neil prefers the Afterglow version. I prefer Together Alone.

All Blacks take on South Africa on Saturday. But that's a topic for a thread over on Put 'Em Under Pressure ... wait, that thread has Finn discussion, so why not some rugby here?
