    Yes and no. I have one friend, Charly, who is a huge fan. We talk and text about Tom a lot. He listens to TP Radio all the time (along with the Beatles station). He's in a little bar band and he plays TPATH covers all the time. I'll send him a "deep cut video of the day" for fun. I have a few other friends who dig TPATH music, but not as much as me. Mostly the Greatest Hits variety. When Tom passed away in 2017, my brother, who isn't a big fan (doesn't own any albums, but doesn't have anything against him either), said this to me: "You know, Tom Petty, he's not in anyone's Top 3, but he's in everyone's Top 10." I laughed, because he is in fact in my top 3, but I got what he meant by the comment. Everyone loved Tom Petty. Everyone thought he was cool. Everyone thought he rocked. I feel that most anyone and everyone liked him, certainly no one hated him, or had a strong reaction against his music. I mean, how many people have you ever heard say, "Man, that Tom Petty, I CAN'T STAND HIM...AND HIS MUSIC SUCKS." None here. Never heard it. He was just a likeable guy all around, you had no problem with him, and his songs were impossible not to enjoy in some way or another. It seemed that all over the internet, with articles, blogs, and comments on YT videos from regular people, that Tom's passing was a big deal. Even if people weren't huge fans, I think that many people realized the absolute loss to the music world, and the world at large. In a good way, Tom and his music were like wallpaper in their lives–always there, always dependable, quietly and consistently providing joy through several decades. Even if you weren't always aware of it. And it made you incredibly sad to realize that his presence was gone.

    I have been a follower for a number of years. I just want to thank you, especially at his death, for being here. TP is part of me, and chatting with like minded individuals has been wonderful. Great job and great folks. Wish you all the best of everything.

    Don't know where this observation would be best placed, so I'll add it here. We know WF is a very personal and introspective album. I just realized that the concept of dreams and dreaming were a BIG theme in Tom's writing during this time (1992-1996). Never really noticed it before until a simple lyric from the new song struck me, and I started thinking about it (Have a dream on me). This idea of dreaming or desperately wanting something better in life. To hope for, happen, to manifest, to be in a better (different) place... - Wildflowers - the entire song is wistful and wishing (dreaming) for someone to be in a place where they feel free. - Good to be King - A long dream or daydream. "Excuse me if I have someplace in my mind, where I go time to time..." - There Goes Angela (Dream Away) - Feels so weird typing out the title of a new TP song!! "Have a dream on me." -YDKHIF - "I woke up in between a memory and a dream." - Dreams of Flying - apparently from 1994...See chorus - Hung Up and Overdue - We're overdue for a dream come true..." - Angel Dream - "I dreamed you..." - Wake up Time - "You follow your feelings, you follow your dreams..." Perhaps it was time to wake up from a certain dream and walk into another.... Maybe this was intentional, or maybe a lot of was coming to him subconsciously. Just wanted to share!

    Anyone else hearing some similarities to Turning Point? Love the song. His songwriting was sooo strong during this period.

    Wow. I just checked in here after not being around for some time. I’m very sad to hear that the site is closing down. I did want to say thanks and let Ryan know how much I enjoyed this site. I enjoyed the discussions as they were lively, heartfelt and informative. A special thanks to Marion for all the Buried Treasure downloads. I will miss this site. Tom was the best!!! Farewell.

    Now that I've gone back to listen to it, the compositional similarities are obvious! Interesting to hear a song that has parts of another song yet goes in a different direction in the chorus. I prefer Turning Point but Dream Away is a pretty little song; such nice rhythm playing too. cheers

    them dirty knobs... :(

    Personally I prefer the album out prior to the tour. I'd rather listen, learn, study the music - makes the show more enjoyable... to me anyway. I have tickets for the Nashville show - but not feeling too optimistic about it happening.

    For sure. Agree with you on the b-sides and alternate versions. Where would they go? Are you sure Girl on LSD wasn't considered for inclusion with the original 25? I'm definitely not a fan of that song....

    Never-heard song?!?

    I thought the song was very good. Reminded me of Neil Young (it's probably the "Heart of Gold"-ish harmonica). Definitely worth digging up, and I wish TP brought it to Benmont so he could have pleaded for a full-band recording!

    Never-heard song?!?

    so some of you that downloaded the song may have noticed it's listed as track 26 home recordings 01, I read over on the Hoff forum the thinking is it may be 25 tracks comprising Wildflowers All the Rest and this is the first of the Home Recordings / Demos... so it sounds to me like we should be seeing some thirty tracks or more. Now we need a release date for the package....

    Tom's voice is just sublime on this. And "have a dream on me..." Those beautiful turns of phrase that came so easily to him.

    Never-heard song?!?

    I was not able to record it but he said Ben does not recall him ever hearing it before. He would have bugged Tom to record it in full if he had. He mentioned it was set in Gainesville FL as the 18th ave was located there and he suspected Tom felt it was too much like a few of the other tracks to include. Did not seem to think there was a specific Angela it referenced and it was very, very early in the writing of the album as it was a 1992 copyright. Is this even listed as one of the "outtakes" known about for the album?

    Its lovely. Just listened to the Sirius broadcast. it should be available for free on Tompetty.com very soon and Ben says think of Gainsville when you listen to the song as it to him gives cues about the song. Is it called There goes angela or Dream away? Thanks to Mudcrutch for staying open so we can talk about this!

    A suggestion: Keep the 'Farm open through the release of the new TPATH song giving members here one last good discussion of the tune and their reactions to it. If not though, I understand and again thank you for keeping this place going as long as you have. cheers

    Hey all, there are a couple things I need to set up before the plug can be pulled. I do not want to drag anything out but let's give it a few days. Guestbook Email list people can sign up for in case some sort of event or big news happens Redirect pages if someone visits a page that doesn't exist any more

    Thanks to @Marion and @Mudcrutch and all of the other people who have made this place possible. I first joined here -- or at least this site in an earlier form -- when I was a young teenager and now I'm 30! Crazy how time flies. This place is definitely an institution for any TPHB fan, and I appreciate and enjoyed all the conversations I've had with many fans here over the years. Suggestion: I find reddit to be confusing and difficult to load. I understand the advantage of it, though, because it ostensibly organizes things by thread. But what about Facebook? I know there's a Mudcrutch Farm group on facebook, and that would be a far preferable outlet in comparison to the Tom Petty Nation FB page, which seems overloaded (in my opinion) with boomers just freely writing their thoughts with random word association. Could we maybe continue to participate in discussions via Facebook somehow? Either via Mudcrutch Farm's Facebook site, or create a new one, with forum capabilities? Or if forum capabilities actually don't exist, we can tag posts, etc.

    I got home about 2pm and Fedex wasn't here yet, they usually deliver about 10am. Me, my daughter and wife sat on the front porch to BS. About 2:20pm the Fedex truck pulled up and brought the box to the porch. I opened it and the guitar is fantastic!!!!!!! It's so beautiful I almost got tears in my eyes! Even my wife and daughter had big smiles on their faces and agreed it is one of the best looking guitars they have seen, and I have quite a few. I haven't plugged it in yet, but will shortly after I take some pix. I'll upload them asap to show you. You know, last year this time I found out I had cancer on my birthday, July 5th and this year, all the news was great and I got an early birthday present. What a great day this is, masks, gloves and all, it's great to be alive. BBL with pix.

    Ryan/Mudcrutch, No, thank you for this place. It is and soon to be was, the premier site for TPATH fans. I found my way here after the official forum became paid members only. This place has been a treasure trove of live and unreleased recordings and interesting and lively fan discussion. You're not going to find this place's quality at TP Nation nor reddit and while Hoffman offers some avenue, none in my opinion compare to what this place was for TPATH listeners. At the same time, it's not exactly a surprise as discussion has slowly been dwindling, I guess it's good it lasted as long as it did following Tom's death. The time, money and effort you put into this place is appreciated. Thank you for allowing me to be a moderator here. Good luck in your future endeavors and take care! cheers, MJ2LD

    Where's Tomfest

    I'm ok, thanks for asking. It just seems that I don't have much in common with folks here anymore. Rather than get spun up about opinions I disagree strongly with, I'm choosing not to read them.
