    FM album cover in thrift shop

    I have a few older PC game boxes with no games inside. Usually from yard sales, and they're often given to me free once they notice the disk's missing. I don't have a floppy disk drive anyways and the games usually aren't too hard to find online, so I'm usually more interested in the packaging (and the half-inch thick manuals) in the first place.

    FM album cover in thrift shop

    Tom wasn't very impressed with the movie:

    Oh I agree with you Shelter!!! It's not the greatest find but I became so emotionally attached to the little orphan I couldn't leave it! I'm much tougher when it comes to books (or I like to think I am). Oh & I love the clip above!

    Ah.. Being quite a "crate digger" myself, when it comes to old abandoned vinyl, I really appreciate that story! Perhaps I wouldn't call that sleeve a great find, but again.. good story, and I know the feeling there exactly.. And.. it inspired me to post this "hidden" little gem in TP lore (and.. I don't actually think it's been up here before? not sure)

    FM album cover in thrift shop

    Yesterday I had a day off & after my errands, went crate digging in a local thrift shop. I'd just found a good CD of another artist & thought hey, live dangerously, take a look in the horrible old vinyls... Vinyl donations just get dumped in old milk crates on the floor & then searched through - so they're never in good repair. But to my utter surprise there was a battered copy of FM movie soundtrack (Breakdown!). I was very pleased for a second, but alas the vinyl was missing. I sat on the floor and laboriously searched inside every album cover in both crates. Nothing, except a lot of Christmas novelty music & some funny looks from other people. Overall this is sad (no vinyl) but happy (I rescued the cover) and realistically, the vinyl once out of the cover would've been scratched to pieces. But the thing I hope will please (and amuse) you all is that the manager suggested someone had stolen the vinyl, leaving the cover. I politely agreed "maybe so" - though I doubt anyone would do that. Would they? Then, perhaps just to get me out of the shop, she gave me the cover for free. Which isn't much use to me, but I'd grown attached to it, as one might towards a lost & vulnerable puppy. This is a photo from the net. My new adopted one is much more battered!

    So glad you got to experience all that Beth, sort of reminds me of days gone by when we all used to get together and travel the country to see concerts and party. We have to get together and do that again!!

    Jeff talking with Little Stevie. I got to talk with him a bit, too. I said... 'My name is Beth and I Am a Patriot....too'. He got the biggest kick out of that! He wrote that song.

    Ann Wilson, Paul Rogers and Mr. Jeff Beck played last night at the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey. Ann can still sing those songs but I was there for one person. Jeff! It is possible? He just gets better every time I see him. Little Stevie was backstage, too....he loves Jeff! A night to remember for sure!

    I Feel Like A Forgotten Song

    Just stumbled upon Ben's live version from last year.. and went back for the original for the first time in a few months probably, and now I must say that You Can Still Change Your Mind really belongs on this list! I think you can really tell that it comes from the same time and place as The Best of Everything... That it carries some musical dna, that there's something that kinda reveals the fact that they are from the same era. But while most people seem to think that TBOE (that eventually came out in 85) is quite the masterpiece of a ballad, and while Tom himself brought that one out for quite a few live renditions, the closing ballad that actually made it to the album back in 1981, is a sadly overlooked and forgotten song, that to my ear is one of the TPATH best, quite simply. Wonderful version this (I know, it's been up before...)

    Speaking of guitars & hips & leaping around on-stage... Okay this ain't an image of Tom Petty or any of the Heartbreakers so what am I doing? It's relevant, honest!!! Here's Angus Young of AC/DC - the energetic lead guitar in schoolboy outfit. Their career runs in parallel with TP & Heartbreakers - came out mid 70s, long-term relatively unchanged line-up, band of brothers. From 4:30 to 7:00 he talks about choice of guitar Gibson SG - because it's light and how another guitar gave him a bruise on his hip. Also how he needs to balance and how some of his moves are actually to get the notes. In an aside, apparently Angus = high-energy on-stage but relatively quiet off-stage - whereas his brother Malcolm = the solid rhythm guitar rock at the back of the stage (a bit like Mike Campbell's stage presence) but the laughing loud-mouth in interviews. Sorry footage is so blurry. I love interviews where the muso is different from how you might imagine them based on their on-stage performance.
