Didn't see the farewell concert I wasn't well enough so missed it. The 2016 encore was amazing. I went with my daughter and she even said it was the most magical concert she's ever been to. She is only 18. Was great to have been able to share a concert with her. She also loves their music now too ��

I cannot answer this one fairly- the first one I wasn't alive to see, the second I attended in person. I will agree that FTTW is the best release from any artist I've ever heard.

Actually, I agree with the assessment that at that point the Crowdies were rather concerned that they might mess something up while writing themselves into history, so when it comes to concerts that have been a/v-documented, I would go for Fleadh '94 as a better concert than FTTW '96. The Encores I have neither watched on TV nor attended, so I cannot testify to the qualities of these.

Apples and oranges really. CH of old is not the CH of now. I had the pleasure of attending a "secret" Melbourne warm up gig in 1996 and it remains my favourite concert of all time. The sound, the energy, and the vitality of the band of 1996 was a different beast of that in 2016. Both sensational, but different experiences.

Ok, so i was at both FTTW and Encore. i agree that it’s like comparing apples and pranges. 1996 was like farewelling my teenage years and my all time favourite band. But i was conscious on the night and ever since when watching the show that for all the emotion and amazing moments (snippet of throw yr arms around me, hess’s tears, DDIO hanging final chord before a singalong coda) it was nowhere near their best gig (and ive seen close to 30). Tim’s singing was horribly out of tune, marks...

What they have in common is that I still listen to / watch them probably about once a week. They are both brilliant. If I could keep only one for the rest of my life I'd go for Encore. It has a great happy, relaxed, content vibe to it. The arrangements are superb, and Neil's voice has a wonderful range. Just as a collection of CH songs it would do, because the Encore versions of those songs are among the best I've heard. And I love Neil's happy grin at the beginning: It's an amazing...

Farewell To The World 1996 or Encore 2016

Just wondering among fellow finn fans which is your favorite concert or what you love about each. Farewell is the best concert by any band in my opinion and also Pauls last which makes it that more emotional. Encore the band are so tight and you can tell from the music how much fun the guys are having.

The sheer magnitude of 1996 is hard to top . A truly magical gig in a magical setting . The 2016 one though , the band are tighter for sure , and Neil is a miracle proving that 20 years later his voice is still magnificent , with very little difference ! Just glad we have them both ... TBH I would like more , and it's long overdue ....

Lost Fifth Album

The Pineapple Head ·
What's everyone's thoughts on the 'Lost Fifth' album of Crowded House which would have been released some time after 1994. Has anyone made their own version using rarities? Do you have an order? Which tracks would be the singles? I'd love to find out!

I don’t get the question. It’s confusing because they released Afterglow after TA, and then of course two more albums later.

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Steve Shealy ·
I don't find it confusing at all. Afterglow was a "leftovers" album released after they broke up, some of which is post-TA, plus other material from that period exists. An "album" could be made from that material (and a pretty good one at that). The other two came years later after they reformed.

Thanks for explaining, but the subtlety of the question was not implicit to me. I was unsure if the OP even knew there were albums after TA. I know they recorded a few demos with Peter Jones (ie Help Is Coming) but I didn’t know there was enough for a whole album. Are you counting the tracks with Paul recorded for Recurring Dream as well? B sides from Try Whistling This that were originally conceived as CH songs (ie Tokyo)? The parameters still aren’t very clear to me.

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Let me rephrase the question. If you were to create a 'Lost Fifth' track listing using demos, Recurring Dream tracks, B sides, rarities ect, what songs would you pick from that period of the band?

The lost 5th album was also raised in the topic thread below. https://www.frenzforum.com/top...lbum-finally-arrived Camus presented a good track listing of: Help Is Coming, Anthem, I Don't Know You, Taste of Something Divine, Spirit of the Stairs (York St Demo), Loose Tongue, Instinct (York St Demo) Everything Is Good For You, Not The Girl, bonus track Instinct (single version) Tokyo would fit pretty well onto that track list too, making it a 10 track album.... I wasn't aware it was...

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Steve Shealy ·
Different order, but mine are basically the same as Camus'. Used the studio demo of Stairs and the rough mix of Loose tongue. Some have suggested that Astro was considered, but seems like Jaffa or someone shot that down. Have not heard it suggested that Tokyo was considered.

I don’t know if Tokyo was ever officially considered or rehearsed by Crowded House, but I recall reading that it was written during the band’s tenure.

Astro was kicking around at that stage, it was performed at a Finn concert in 1995/6 it's in one of the fan club CDs. Listening to the stuff recorded at the time there was some cracking material.

I am quite fond of my lost CH album, which I call Something Divine. I chose to imagine a word where some new songs are being worked on at the same time that outtakes from TA are being considered and that Paul is still a member of the band. 1. New castle Jam 2. Anthem 3. Instinct 4. Everything is Good For You 5. You Can Touch 6. A Taste of Something Devine 7. Not the Girl You Think You Are 8. My Time is Now (Paul Hester) 9. Convent Girls 10. Help is Coming 11. Spirit is the Stairs (studio demo)

I can tastify that Painaporos album Something Divine is one of the best albums CH (never) released.

I've made a playlist that could have been released in 1996 or so, it utiilizes a couple of outtakes from Together Alone, though. (And they do sound ever-so-slightly out of place.) But it's a great album full of fantastic mid-nineties rock. I actually really, really really like it and I think I would have just loved in 1996, which was right when I was getting into all things Finn. I even think it might have been a big international hit, it sounds so "of the times." It goes like this:...

SOOOO much good music from that time frame! Sad they called it quits in what seems in retrospect to be a very creative time for Neil. But at least this stuff is "out" and we can enjoy it, shuffle it around and create interesting playlists and "what ifs".

Re: Lost Fifth Album

Steve Shealy ·
Another thought just came to me, "Walk Tall" was from that period. Though it was a live cut, would have been interesting to see it developed and see what would have happened in the studio. Could have fit well on the "lost album".

To me, if these songs we know were on that "lost" album, it would be most probably second best album of CH, shortly after Together Alone, and maybe even with Woodface... Most of that songs are just brilliant, just to mention Anthem, Help is Coming, Taste of Something Divine, Everything is good for you, Spirit of the stairs are all just fantastic. Rest of them are also great...

I totally agree. My "Crowded House 96 " is my favorite Crowded House record after Together Alone.

In addition to the 1996 CH album I shared previously, I also have a "bonus disc" to that album, which I call the Lost Tapes '96. It includes the following: 1. Most Unwanted (MTV UK live) 2. Instinct (demo from FTTW DVD) 3. Be My Guest (live on the Internet) 4. Not the Girl You Think You Are (demo) 5. Dots on the Shell (live acoustic performance) 6. Everything Is Good For You (demo) 7. Loose Tongue (demo) 8. Falling Star (live acoustic radio performance) 9. I Don't Know You (demo) 10. Spirit...
