This is Podcast Gold!!

Thank you to Neil, his family and friends for this wonderful podcast of beautiful music and memories! I am enjoying all the remakes of my favorite songs! I just heard Neils grandson calling for him in the background which was priceless!

Thank you and please “Don’t Stop Now”!

Ok

I'm a longtime fan of NF and all his projects, so this was obviously interesting to me. However in practice it's kind of a mixed bag. There's a lot of looseness like widely varying audio quality, Neil having to stop and futz with equipment, random interruptions etc. It feels more like a reality show sometimes, where you're just observing the Finn family and Neil might play some songs. The quality of performances varies widely too, sometimes his voice is not sounding good and he forgets half the lyrics and just doesn't seem that interested in making it good. Other times it's really good. And getting to hear some rare demos is always a treat. I don't listen frequently, I just catch highlights, especially if there's a new album coming. Nice for fans but I wish it was more consistently well-produced.

A Must!

Every single one of these shows is a gift. Quarantined in his house in LA, Neal played live for us daily, solo and also with his family. We are treated to songs by Crowded House, Split Enz, various solo projects, and some great demos. Best of all is Neil’s kind and soothing presence encouraging us to stay safe, take care of each other and maybe occasionally enjoy a glass of “cheeky red”.

Many fans say that these shows have gotten them through the darkest times of this global pandemic. Thank you, Neil!
