Re: Crowded & Costello

Had to vote Yes. My top 3 artists of all time always start with Neil first, Elvis second (and though it's close sometimes, I don't own every note like I do Neil, or belong to a fan club or email lists), and it rotates after that between folks like XTC, REM ( I did go to school in Athens, after all), Beach Boys, etc. After the Elvis/McCartney collaborations, I've always been interested in a Neil/Elvis effort. I'd love to see that, or hear Elvis cover 'Into Temptation,' as I've heard him say...

Re: Bad concert pairings...

Probably have to go with Koko Taylor opening for Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. Mind you, I LIKE Koko Taylor, but she works better in a small blues club than far away on a stage in front of 16,000 people. That, and while Zep USED to be pretty firmly rooted in the blues, it isn't really where the Page/Plant sound was going on that particular tour.

Shawn Colvin for Lyle Lovett. Erasure for Duran Duran. Human League for Culture Club Poison for David Lee Roth. and the king... Lone Justice, with U2, in 1985. ps. I always got a kick out of Elvis Presley opening up for Pat Boone....LOLOLOLOL!!!!!

Re: CH live with Eddie Rayner?

Dorthonion ·
The best example of Eddie's terrific contributions to CH's early live sound is on the July '97 club CD "State Of Mind" covering the Sydney State Theatre show of Aug 25, 1988 (listen to "Love This Life" or "Now We're Getting ..."). I also think he was part of the 1999 club CD of the 1986 gig "Live at the CDCG".

Wow. I am surprised that so many Neil fans find it hard to believe Eminem would be a Neil fan...also I can't believe more neil fans DON'T like Em. I find him totally refreshing and original in his honesty about topics...sure the "I beat your mother" talk and the white trash crap are not great, but his damn songs are so catchy!

Re: Neil's DVD's poll

Jeremy Loder ·
Well, seeing as I created this poll (my first), I may as well post what I voted for and where I rank each title. 1. I voted for Split Enz - The collection. This release has to be every Finn/Enz fans wet dream come true. Beautifully remastered video clips of most of the bands hits, live video tracks from between 1977 and 1993, the fantastic hour long Spellbound doco. You simply can't fault anything on this. 2. Neil Finn - Seven Worlds Collide. A very close second. Whilst this release contains...

Re: Neil's DVD's poll

Martine ·
Hi Jeremy, Thanks for this great thread: 1. Split Enz: I'm more of a Neil/CH/Finn Bros fan, but I added this to my collection anyway. I have watched it several times and am delighted with it. Although I was a SEnz fan in the early 80s--I wasn't aware of anything prior to Waiata, True Colours and Tide and Time or anything after it. This DVD has given me a greater appreciation for SEnz and has encouraged me to re-listen to all the CDs. I now have several new firm favourites due to this DVD 2.

Wow. Thanks much for the great reviews, Jeremy and SplitHouse! It sounds absolutely dazzling that they played 16 new songs (except Edible Flowers, which I'm really curious to hear a new version by this particular band). I'd love to hear them on club CD or another if there's a recording. Jeremy wrote: I'm lost for words as this description made my already high hopes for the new album skyrocket! I love the south-Pacific first Finn album, but I have to admit I'm still lukewarm about One All.

Actually about ten years ago, I used to be a regular at a gothic/grunge/alternative club where the DJ would every week, without fail, throw on "Counting the Beat" during her last set. It filled the dancefloor, but unlike Martine I never had to worry as I never had anything much "up front" to jiggle,...
