Sessions at West 54th is a solo music video album released in December 2000 by New Zealand singer-songwriter, Neil Finn as part of the United States live musical television series, of the same name.[1] His live performance was recorded in 1999 and mostly has tracks from Finn's debut solo album, Try Whistling This (June 1998), although it also included two tracks ("Fall at Your Feet" and "Don't Dream It's Over") from his recent group, Crowded House, and one ("I Got You") from his earlier group, Split Enz.

The concert was issued on DVD via Sony/Epic.[1][2] It was produced by Allen Kelman and directed by Mike Chloe.[3] Tim DiGravina of AllMusic rated the album at four-and-a-half-out-of-five stars and explained, "[he] throws every last ounce of passion into the session. Switching back and forth between ballads and rock flare-ups, Finn's crystal clear vocals and acoustic and electric guitars paint him as a perfect example of a first-rate singer/songwriter."[1]
