Hi Billy, I think the thread which NFADDICT is refering to can be found here

Now get yourselves back on topic Wink Big Grin

It all sounds very exciting from duderanch... I'm hoping we get as much release in the UK as is being said here - I'm assuming you're talking about the Australian releases duderanch?? Please can we have the same everywhere else? Pleeeeeeassse! Big Grin
I think this whole thing is just INCREDIBLE. I've waited 10 years, wishing that someday someone would be bold enough to release the FAREWELL CONCERT in full glory. Now is the time!
I'm really excited and am very anxious to see the Artwork for both the DVD and CD releases.
I've been stalking the site almost everyday hoping to get a first glimpse of a new Crowded House release.
This is by far the most exciting FINN related news in a loooooong time!
All the effort and all the energy put into this DVD will be praised endlessly!

Robbie, I hope your not joking.
I hate to say it but you are my Idol as if today.
How did you manage to get both th CD and the DVD almost 2 months ahead of time?
Is there any way they will be released before the scheduled dates?
You must either be very close to someone important at EMI or related to the FINNs. In any case you MUST get down to business, watch the DVD, listen to the CD and then get back to the and write a full review of everything.
For those of us who have to wait till late November, you are our only hope!
Okay Guys have just played the New Live CD sounding fab!
The DVD managed to play disc one listned the some of the commentary!
A guy called Laurie Zion is The Moderator
In Aukland is Neil and Nick with Miller and Lorraine the two dogs (Lorraine being Pauls dog)
On the Phone from Los Angeles is Mark Hart
Well it starts with Neil saying "Hey were here"
Nick "Neil you run like a girl"
mentions Paul always having a comfy chair!
Heres a biggie Neil mentions during Dont dream its over that the Demo of that song will be coming out on a box set next year!!)

Grrrr! How did you manage to get your hands on it before time! Red Face I'm jealous!!! Razzer
I dont want to spoil anything so if you dont want any spoilers look away this might be in your Christmas stocking!!!!

Okay Guys here goes.. sorry for any spelling
Disc 2
Doc1 "The Day they brought the house down"
They have David Hepworth (A UK music journalist always a big fan of the band) says something great about "Crowded House were a band you wanted to run off with like the circus"
alson you have Lawrie Zion, Michael Chugg,Peter Green(our god)Neil ,Nick (they talk about the split up)theres a lot of back stage shots.
Peter mentions that when a band splits up the community of fans drift off where as with the Crowdies we have doubled!!!it shows our love of the band!
Doc2 "Planning the Event" This is the one we have on the VHS tapes not sure if there is any added stuff? Paul is really funny at the press conference!!
Doc3 Channel 7 Witness
This has Neil playing "Private Universe" under a huge tree on a black arm chair, then in the studio playing an e-bow(guitar vibrator)
Nick is sketching away(maybe at his house)
Paul is in his studio explaining what he wants out of life talking about the band,Neil playing an Octogon singing "not the girl" then on the piano!
Theres a clip of fans watching a soundcheck at a Melbourne Pub.
The band talk about whether they are dorks!!!
some fab video of Paul with his dogs and his car.
Credits: has all the names of the people who helped with the track"Spirit of the Stairs" This sounds different to the Neil version maybe it could of been a demo?
Photo Gallery
Photos with a choice of demos of
Instinct or Italian Plastic(sounding very different)(different beat)

I just want to say who ever put this DVD together deserves a big pat on the back Thank you.

On a personal note I kinda hated Crowded House getting sucessful they were my band no one elses! a real best kept secret but there you go!
do you guys know what I mean?

On a last note i just want to say on the channel 7 witness Doc there is Paul in slow motion playing drums to Dont Dream its over at the end of the gig and you can see Tears rolling down his face, this is really heartbreaking guys I had a tear to!

"Dont Dream Its over"
Spoilers don't bother me here... so I read it!

Thanks robbie - just makes me want it all the more... and Spirit of the Stairs... ahh ahhh ahhh ... cue wild screaming!!

Sounds amazing! I really can't wait...

Is the Channel 7 part from around the time of the concert then? Yeah, I think from what you said it is, right?
Originally posted by robbie: Yes the Witness Doc is around the time of the split up, some cool Neil stuff there.

I'm pretty sure I've seen this. Neil strumming his guitar under the tree, gorgeous shots of Lester, Neil in his house, contemplative Paul in his studio and car, Nick at home, fans getting into soundcheck...the list goes on.

And as for those different angle shots of Paul in FTTW....oh dear, get the tissues ready. I know I definitely needed them. Frowner

I'm just so glad they included THIS entire story on the really is precious footage that deserves to be seen by as many fans as possible.
