    Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    This is the very question that's been plaguing me. Tom is on record saying the album was finished and ready to go. Why not just release what Tom deemed the finished product?

    Well played HCC and Warner Bros....

    I don't know how many people will get this present but I am somewhat speechless. I had a package waiting for me from WB when I got home this afternoon. At first I thought it may be my DK shirts which I ordered and got shipping notification on. I could not have been more surprised by the contents especially given my recent frustrations with the TP store on his website. I ordered my wife 2 or 3 shirts for xmas. One arrived in November when I placed the order. Last Sunday I got an email from WB saying the final items in my order were backordered and I would get a credit for thoses items. I was miffed as it was a T shirt and why the heck can you not get that straight. I was fairly sure it was the Gator logo TP shirt which looked pretty cool. I tried to look at the order but there were zero details showing itemized orders in the cart, or on the my account page. I was miffed but over it as its a T shirt so NBD. very oddly the following Monday I received a t shirt in the mail that was not the Gator logo for my wife so now I was baffled as I would not have ordered her 3 shirts. So by now like Brad pit in Se7en kept saying "whats in the box????" So there was this nice note: and a cornucopia of nice merch as seen below... sort of stunned. Luckily I plan to do a meet and greet for the DK Derry show and planned to do a raffle for Tazzy fund so some of this will go into that as I'm not a huge pin guy. My wife will love the hoodie so its a win for her as well given the missing shirt... Its a very nice gesture and I see it as the ship being righted now that the estate squabbles are over. Edit to add. I did message them a number of times about the forum being down so that may be what is being referenced to in the note but its a little strange as it reads as a form note and I have to think other people got something similar... Strange stuff.... <shrug>

    Another New Guitar

    Yikes, I just tuned up this Gibson and plugged it into my Vox Beatle amp and it sounds amazing. There's a P90's crunch even at low watts. I can go from 2 watts to 20 to 50 and up to 200 watts on rotary knob with my amp head and 4X12 Beatle cab. This is great!!!!!! Here's a pix of 1 of my amps.

    Mike is doing a tour he is almost certainly doing for the fans as he could hit larger venues and sell more tix. Its my way of giving back for all he does for the animals. I love dogs and MC does a lot for them. I'm blessed to be in a position to be able to 'give back' to the community so why not as I have the time? šŸ˜Ž

    Having dug a little too deep into the legal filings I thing Jane is involved as she does own some of the publishing rights and had a single vote share in the proposed trust that Tom had described in the will. Each daughter and Dana had one vote but Dana was supposed to be in charge of the estate. Sadly we all know the squabble that came with the release of the greatest hits packages the estate pushed. Its clear to me with Adria and Anakim trashing the coffee story the kids did not have as much a hand in the day to day affairs of Dad after they moved out (I can't say became adults as that is obviously not the case with one of the kids but I digress) and I think Jane and Dana were in favor of releasing All the Rest but one of the other egos decided it was better to do a career retrospective rather than fulfil Tom's dream of a proper full treatment of this project. Hopefully the diva BS is over and quality projects like ATR and the Fillmore Box or archive live stuff slowly flows out. I would be ecstatic if they released all 20 nights as stand alone shows over time. Heck I would gladly subscribe to a new service that gave catalog access to live shows as they have nearly all the soundboard stuff form 97 forward.

    Most likely because she shares the copyright and (Iā€™m guessing) publishing for those songs.

    Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    You all did see the daughters trashing Ben and Mike as "enablers" to Tom's addiction, right? At this point I doubt the band has any influence with the girls, or that their opinions matter at all to them. My expectations are quite low right now. The road ahead just looks like more drama and lawsuits to me. I hope I'm wrong. Dana seems like a peacemaker, so I suppose there is hope.

    I think it is mostly about legal issues. Jane was still married to TP when the Wildflowers sessions were recorded, and when the album was released. Perhaps the divorce settlement gave her a stake and say in the future of those recordings. And of course Dana, Adria, and Annakim would get shares of Tom's estate also, and have some say in what happens to the songs/recordings/albums. In many cases, it seems to take 100% agreement among the heirs/stakeholders to get anything released. Which is why there can be delays in legacy output of deceased musicians. I've always wondered why Del Shannon's performance of "Runaway" with TPATH wasn't included on the 1978/79 New Year's Eve DVD (as part of the deluxe "Live Anthology"), but it seems likely this was due to issues of approval from Del's estate. My guess is that Mike will be heavily involved in the Wildflowers re-release project, as well as Benmont. Quite possibly also Ryan Ulyate, since TP was most recently working with him, and trusted him with his past recordings. I doubt Rick Rubin will be involved, but it's possible. I think the legacy heirs like Jane will mainly be providing ideas on track sequencing, and might approve the final mixes. I hope this will not be the case of "too many cooks" or "design by committee". But it could work out fine. The thought is that not only would the heirs have a financial stake, but that they would be committed to the artistic legacy of their husband or father. In the case of Mike and Benmont, there's really no worry since those guys have always cared more about the final product than about their own egos. But a lot of times there have been bands doing remixes, and the remix tends to favor the musician doing the remix at the expense of the others. Again I don't see that happening here, but it's a reason why TP's heirs would have a legal right to give approval to a release.

    Um....while I'm indeed glad the album is being worked on.....does anyone else find it unusual that Jane is now involved with the WF reissue? I wonder if she's been involved with the production of any other TP projects in the past?? First, Dana was in charge of the legacy releases....and now.... One of the reasons I find it odd (ironic, sad?) is that of all the albums, it's Wildflowers. Adria said that upon hearing WF, that it was the sound of her dad leaving/ending that relationship. In that context, I wonder what effect that would have on a person (namely Jane) or what feelings and emotions that might bring to the forefront...

    you guys need to do a dive into the Petty All star birthday bash. I've shared a few videos here, Ron Blair and Steve were there and it was a line up of all star musicians and it was lovely. Hattie Webb sang a few tunes, Ron Blair sang a few, STEVE sang a song. It was a lovely and moving tribute that I would see again. Lots of people I had somewhat heard about had also played along with a son of Wilburys (Roys son for sure.) I just wish I knew more about the names of some of these folks as it was just a fun night and a fitting tribute. If Mike and Ben got on board... damn... Could be more of a Grateful dead vibe than a somber sad tribute. There were multiple people playing drums and bass so it was more of a festival vibe than a tribute, its just that 99% of the songs were Petty or TW or Mud songs. they did one cover of the FM song Mike now does but aside from that it was all parts from the Petty Shed. I really hope Jeff Slate releases a DVD or streaming version of the show as there were 3 cameras doing professional videography but it seems to be tied up in production and or legal for release... Im sure if Anikim smells cash she will fight to see it released. šŸ˜£ it was a party in short...

    Agree....between Mike, Scott, Ron and Ben, I'm sure much of the WF vocals could be covered by the Heartbreakers themselves. Even including Stan would be both a kind gesture and unique twist. I think the original vision behind a WF tour was to include female singers for sure. Maybe 2 or 3 rotating between songs with Tom, and maybe taking solos. I think Norah Jones was considered and on board first. Maybe the Webb sisters would come back. Come to think of it, what might be cool would be artists featured in Echo in the Canyon. Jakob Dylan, Regina Spektor, Chan Marshall (Cat Power), and Beck on vocals with the Heartbreakers. Or Dani Harrison. Or the Shelters. Tom had so many friends who could and would be honored I'm sure...

    Thanks for posting that. The camera angle is a case of "a little goes a long way" for me, but...that performance! Fantastic! I really like the sound of the drums, that to me is garage band perfection. Whatever they are playing sounds sweet and what a treat to see Mike's slide action in such close perspective, especially the way he gets the vibrato going through the glass. This type of stuff is probably peak TDK for me, the further they get from 1950s rock covers or Johnny Be Goode type stylings and more their own noise the better. It's not about Mike's vox but the dirty feel of the instruments, hitting a groove, playing some histrionic guitar solos and havin' fun. Any good songs atop this are a bonus to my mind. cheers

    This one is a mind-bender because of genius camera angle. Note the speed with which he puts on his slide... Are these are some mad hand / eye co-ordination skills or what??
