Neil, Roddy, & Graham : In The Round
As I continue the major sweep and subsequent sale of my precious and not so few CDs, I am still discovering little gems that somehow got lost over years and years of collecting. This weekend's find is a show dated 10/14/98, from Club Subterrania in London.
Three of my favorite songwriters, Neil Finn (Split Enz, Crowded House), Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera), and Graham Gouldman (10cc) convened for a rare club appearance that would be filmed for the BBC series "In The Round," where each performer would share songwriting tales and help out the others with some tentative guitar playing and harmony vocals.
Gouldman has written many classics for many others, such as The Hollies, Herman's Hermits, The Yardbirds, Sonny & Cher and Jeff Beck, and this set includes the guys having fun with some of those hits---Heart Full Of Soul, Bus Stop & For Your Love--as well as their own---Killermont Street, Don't Dream It's Over, Fall At Your Feet & Oblivious.
Enjoy the video for "Oblivious," while you download a small ZIP FILE that features one song from each.
