ROB SEZ: Fancy a bit of Finn musical fun? If you're showcasing New Zealand talent (as I'm doing these days at the blog), you can't go wrong with either Finn brother. That said, Neil is more prolific, and it can be hard to find live recordings of Tim in good voice. Here are two for your listening pleasure. As always, my biggest thanks go to the tapers and sharers, whose names are unknown to me. Please enjoy.





  1. Thanks! Huge Finn fan since True Colours days. Have met both brothers a few times.

    1. You're very welcome, and I'm envious that you've met Neil & Tim. I consider them music royalty...
