I really like this. I pre ordered it as a download, & i've been really enjoying some decent melodies for a change, from the man who oozes melodies. Ever Present Past, & See Your Sunshine i've found most enjoyable, & Only Mama Knows seems to be very semi-autobiographical. Must admit that i wasn't really expecting anything from Sir Mac, but maybe that's why i like it so much. Lets face it, he only does music as a hoby now, so he doesn't have to prove anthing to anybody, & he...

Is this the one with Cucumber Castle on? [oh wait, you said it was ]. I remember (just) being totally obsessed with a very early Bee Gees as a very early teenager - this must be it - and, like many groups, Fleetwood Mac for one, they went off in a different direction after their initial brilliance, well I think so anyway. This was also when there were five BGs. Vincent M something or other and Colin someone or other, who I think played some Australian kid in some early Australian drama...

I'm not talking about the complexity of the parts (not that I think they're overly complex and I could easily transcribe them myself) but the fact is I don't really see why it was recorded in tiny sections (and we're not talking just different musical sections, even those are broken down via numerous edits). I just don't see what the point was. Dan Hicks isn't for everyone, I don't like everything he put out. I've said before that Sgt Pepper musically is over rated. It's good, very good, but...

Wish I was, Sam. I had tix for the Calgary version, but he canceled. Don't know if it was lack of sales. It would have been at Mac Hall up on campus, and I was super stoked for that little venue. It was the 4th time I had tickets to a CH/Neil show and had not seen it. Therefore, I am rather excited for tomorrow. I'm sure it will go by too fast, but maybe we can make this moment last a lifetime. Every poet is a thief - Bono

Thanks to PopTart Jen and Mike Mac for the photos of ACL. Already looking forward to January 5 and wondering if the box set might be out in time for Christmas. That way I won't "have to imagine things to keep myself warm." I especially like the slide 20 out of 20 where Neil is getting some make-up powdered on his nose while Liam looks on with a devilish grin. Frameable.

Not a problem. First a little background -- It was exceptionally difficult to find songs that fit the occasion well with respect to title, lyrics, and tempo/mood. In order not to limit myself too much, I often had to go for two of the three (usually title and tempo/mood, sacrificing lyrics to some extent). I also found myself being drawn to themes such as the passage of time, travel/flight, heaven, etc. Piano, strings, and acoustic guitar also seemed to be major players, as well. I don't...

Thanks all for your advice so far.

There is a version of Windows Media Player available for the Mac. You can download it here: Windows Media Player for the Mac Sad to see that even here, some people are unduly harsh towards Apple and the Mac. If you watched the lived set the Finn Brothers played at KCRW you might have seen there was a Mac being used in the studio. Hmmm....... (By the way I own both Mac and PC)

Much of the music industry uses Mac, eminent examples being Tony Visconti and one Mr Neil Finn - both of their recording studios use Digidesign's Pro Tools HD systems. Neil also has a PowerBook on tour with him - someone on TITM witnessed him burning a CD of one of the shows on it! Think Different
