Neil Finn & Friends – 7 Worlds Collide: Live At The St. James

Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 10: BMV #10, 3-For-$10 Deal #5 – Neil Finn & Friends – 7 Worlds Collide*

I used to own this, way back in the day. I don’t know why I dealt it, probably one move across Canada or another. But when I saw another copy, yoink! It was mine (again)!

Of course you know these shows, for which this disc culls from 5 shows in Auckland, NZ in 2001, were done in support of charity. This disc features a ton of ‘Friends,” including (amongst members of Finn’s own band): Eddie Vedder (the reason I owned it years ago), Johnny Marr, Ed O’Brien, Tim Finn, Sebastian Steinberg, Phil Selway, Lisa Germano, and Betchadupa (featuring Neil’s son Liam Finn). 

You know I’m gonna say this is awesome BECAUSE IT IS! So much greatness. But I think the moment the hairs on my arms stood up was when he invited his brother Tim to the stage and they sang harmony through a gorgeous rendition of Angels Heap. Fuck yes, that’s the good stuff right there.

So many great versions of career-spanning songs, a truly stupendous disc. There’s a DVD too, get yours today!

 

Hit It Or Quit It? Hit!

 

* “The title of this album, as well as the 7 Worlds Collide project, is derived from the line “Seven worlds will collide / whenever I am by your side” from Crowded House’s 1993 single Distant Sun.” (Wiki)

  1. I’ve seen the DVD but never listened to the album. Pretty ace lineup of supporting musicians.

  2. I was going to say, I thought I recognized that from a song lyric!
