"Spring Cleaning With Neil Finn" : THE WEEKEND MIX
With a new Crowded House CD, "Intriguer" just out in Australia, and due out here next month, I thought I'd gather together an hour's worth of odds and enz, from the Split Enz/House member, singer/songwriter Neil Finn. He's been a fave since I first heard "I Got You" way back when.
I'm not about to review the new record just yet, though after a few days with it, it did make me feel like I may need a few more days with it. More on that closer to the U.S street date.
Rather than put together a collection of songs that were easily attainable elsewhere, I went the oddities route, sort of a "spring cleaning" of rarities. These tracks were pulled from live fan club CDs, videos, BBC radio broadcasts and stray compilations. Some tracks date back as far as 1986, with a couple recorded at CBGBs, while two tracks from "Intriguer" are from a BBC concert aired just last month.
Hope you dig it.
