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

allthingsfinn ·
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 ....

I took the leap and bought this. I haven't watched the whole thing, but I'm having mixed feelings. First of all, I think it's fantastic that Neil took a chance on having this fan edit the concert together, and I'd certainly rather have this version than none at all. That said, while it doesn't seem obviously amateur or anything, it does lack a certain professionalism. I can't put my finger on it and I'm not super experienced with editing myself, but I found myself *aware* of the editing,...

I jumped on it as soon as I saw Neil retweet something yesterday. I havent been this excited about a concert video in a very long time; It reminds me of what happened with Farewell To the World, it took a good 10 years to get a proper release. The concert is simply amazing!!! The performances are just unbelievable to watch. The quality of audio/video is top notch and the editing is pure genius. Really makes you fee like you’re there in the audience at the show. Is it polished, coreographed,...

What a totally unexpected 10 years ago blast from the past this is! Just watched it all and as familiar as I've been with what transpired at the shows , it was a lovely surprise to see the cover of Thunderclap Newman's "Something In The Air" at the end! Coincidentally - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers covered the same song on their greatest hits compilation in the 90's as the only new track along with "Mary Jane's Last Dance" which went on to be an International hit. Fast forward to today...

If anyone's interested, the played songs that missed the cut were White Valiant and Long Time Gone (both Don McGlashan ), Suddenly I See ( KT Tunstall ), I'll Be Lightning ( Liam Finn ) and three Wilco songs (War on War, Outtasite (Outta Mind) and Hoodoo Voodoo). 32 out of 39 ain't bad I guess.

It’s streaming on Amazon now. I’m an hour into it and I love it. This is the Neil I know and love, playing with a bunch of sympatico musicians who aren’t divas. Not sure why the edits bother you slowpogo - it’s just cutting back and forth between different nights and doing a pretty seamless job if you ask me.

I’m glad it doesn’t bother you. I’m just saying, it shows that this person is a first-time editor. I know someone who’s a professional editor, and like any art form it takes many years to master...it’s incredibly unlikely this person, who says his real training is in sound, *wouldn’t* be a little iffy. Also, there’s always a flurry of ultra-positive reviews whenever Neil puts something out so I take you guys with a grain of salt 😉. Maybe y’all just have your rose-colored-Finn glasses on.

Thank you, Ligature! Some real gems there I wouldn't have expected! California Stars, Fake Plastic Trees, plus several I'm not familiar with. Would have liked to see Elroy get to do his Cobbler.

Take the plunge Steve, it's a very cool part of Neil's career that probably didn't get full exposure at the time. Obviously there's been the album and documentary movie to delve into since but there's quite a lot going on in the set list here that wasn't represented on the album or in the documentary movie - It's been the preserve of fans who saw the shows at the Powerstation a decade ago until this week. Examples: Neil singing Radiohead's "Bodysnatchers", the Thunderclap Newman cover,...

Thanks @Underthewheel , that was my mistake. Great review @The Ligature ! Were those additional shows in the UK and the US billed as actual 7 Worlds Collide shows, or were they just Neil Finn solo shows where a couple of special guests made an appearance? I did up a spreadsheet featuring the songwriters and lead vocalists of each song if anyone's interested. Also included are each song's origin and some of my thoughts on the performance and project.

The show in Los Angeles was billed as "7 Worlds Collide at Largo", whereas shows there on the following two nights were billed as Neil Finn shows. I believe the show at Dingwalls in London which took place a week earlier was also billed as a 7 Worlds Collide show. The Santa Barbara performance was a case of Neil taking the opportunity to play a show with some friends at a nearby venue after The Sun Came Out documentary movie premiered at the Santa Barbara film festival, so that was a Neil...

I was there on all three nights and I reckon it's most likely 'I'll be lightning' wasn't included because on Night Three (from whence most of the performance footage is gleaned) Neil was singing along with Liam and made a mistake in the song. He alludes to it in a couple of comments that made it to the final cut we are all now currently enjoying... the first mention is around the time of 'Throw Your Arms'... At the time I recall he was really down on himself for stuffing it up and apologised...

It’s a shame Suddenly I See didn’t make it. I was there all 3 nights and it was a highlight for me. This release was a real surprise. I was so disappointed that there wasn’t a concert movie alongside the documentary but this makes up for it. For me, it does really capture the essence of the gigs. I had one of the camera guys next to me (up the front under Johnny) so some shots are really like reliving it over again. I am incredibly happy that this has seen the light of day...

Thanks for the additional insights - I bet Neil is just as pleased as his fan base that this branch of his career tree is finally out there for all to see. I get a kick out of the fact that a twitter message is the origin of it all and that the work was done on your home computer set up on the opposite side of the globe - the wonders of technology! Have you received feedback from any of the 7 Worlds Collide musicicans? Were the aware they had a concert release imminent?

No direct feedback from other 7 Worlds Collide musicians, but that's fine. Neil had relayed that others appreciated it. I'm completely happy with how the whole experience turned out. Not sure if the other participants were aware that the release was imminent - I'm guessing they're all cool with it being released but I think everybody involved now has other work that they're focused on.

Jason: You did a wonderful job capturing the spirit of this event. In addition to the "relationship moment" you mention above, in which Jeff Tweedy does a double-take and returns to the stage, I also appreciated the brief glimpse of (I think) Don McGlashan and KT Tunstall dancing stage left; Bic Runga casually sitting on the riser for her background vocals; and Johnny Marr tapping McGlashan on the shoulder to get to the microphone for his harmonica solo. You and Simon Mark Brown captured...

Thanks, Jabberz. Ha - I guess Jeff looking at the floor isn't exactly much of a relationship moment (probably not the best example I could have given), but you get the idea. There was a lot of warmth on stage and in the whole room, and Simon and his crew did a great job of capturing those moments. When it first became clear that this concert video project might actually happen, one of the first things I did was track down a copy of the Sun Came Out documentary that Simon directed. I loved...

That sounds old-fashioned... :-(. It’s a concert movie, so who needs subtitles? We saw the Finn family in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago without subtitles ;-). I’d be really annoyed if the sole reason to not release this officially in my country would be the assumption that we won’t be able to understand what it is without translation.
