And, our top selling CD for 2013 is….
Early in 2013, two of Australasia’s greatest singer songwriters Neil Finn and Paul Kelly, brought their iconic songs on a tour across Australia. Finn and Kelly shared the stage throughout as members of the one band, singing and playing together a selection from their rich and varied songbooks. Goin' Your Way is a beautiful souvenir of this glorious celebration. As one journalist put it on the night: ‘Watching Finn and Kelly try each other’s songs on for size reminded you why you love music.’
