    New TPATH Releases

    All I know is after all this time, it better have more than 10 tracks attached to it lol. the DTT re-release was incredibly underwhelming due to the lack of new material

    Did I miss something in all this noise? Who, when and where was any of that stuff mentioned?

    New TPATH Releases

    And they've been saying for 20 years how they want to release an album on their Fillmore stand and still have not done so. You can't believe this band for anything when it comes to releasing new unreleased gems, deep cuts and or live music. That is literally this bands greatest sin. They released only 1 live album with a few live DVDs and VHSs that should've been also put out as LPs and other shows that should've been put out as well. Pack Up though charming at times is a bastardization of them live and though the Live Anthology offers a great scope of them as a band over 35 years, there never was a true release of them as a band at their peak and that's a fucking crime.

    Mike Campbell's fav records

    There's no reason to put quotes around Americana. It's an actual genre of music, also known in it's earlier days as alt-country. And the Band isn't doesn't ever really tread into that genre. Outside of the odd number like "Evangeline", (which is great btw), they're just a nice amalgamation of rock, blues, folk and soul, that make their own brand and genre defining music. They're not really any country roots to be found in their music. It's not a bad thing but that's more of a keen observation from someone who loves Americana.

    Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    I'm gonna laugh when they finally release All the Rest and it's just a reissue of She's the One

    Thoughts on Playback

    Playback would only have to sell a little over 180,000 copies to go platinum. 6 discs in the bundle means 1 copy sold counts as 6.

    Thoughts on Playback

    I want you to think of the mid to early 70s pop/rock music scene and then look at "Depot Street" and then the stuff that was hitting the charts then. That song is a terrible choice for a single. "Lost in Your Eyes" is a better choice for a single and so is "I Can't Fight It". Look, just because we here are die hard TPATH and Mudcrutch fans doesn't mean that what we think is great would've been the A & R choice for songs to hit the masses. As much as we all love "Keeping Me Alive" and think it should've been on an album, it doesn't mean it's a better choice as a single than "You Got Lucky". can't be the only one with that same thought process

    Thoughts on Playback

    "Depot Street" shows why Mudcrutch wasn't gonna last as a band. It's a nifty song but hardly worthy of being a single. It's like the record label was trying to kill them. Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again "Come On Down to My House" is one of their most underrated songs they've ever done. It's no bullshit rock 'n' roll.

    Let Me Up (the album)

    And the way his arm is bent and touching his hat forms a little play button in the sky between his arm and head as if to say, "You're gonna want to play this album, all the time." LOL

    Let Me Up (the album)

    Nashville Skyline is a country masterpiece though and was even well received now and in its own time. It's Self-Portrait that got lambasted for being terrible. And remember, the time to make his classics Bringing it All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited was truncated as well. It was a different time in the 60s. If you didn't have 2 LPs a year, you were slacking. Also, after having labored over Southern Accents for years, the rushed production and making of Let Me Up was a welcomed difference. It may be disjointed yes, but it's the bands most underrated album by far.

    Zollo and Zanes books on Petty, what do you think?

    I haven't read the Zane's book yet even though my mom has had it since it came out but I do know one thing that annoyed me about Zane's book, though not his fault, is the fact about Tom opening about his own heroin addiction when he essentially buried Howie in Conversations for his problems with addiction. I believe it's in the Howie chapter where they talk about his heroin use and Tom does say that he tried it but always stayed away from it because of how he felt when he took it. It just comes off as super hypocritical. Still think the book is a great read though

    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    At the end of the day it's okay that this album was never fully realized because the Drive-By Truckes Southern Rock Opera would surpass the idea as a concept album and make it, well, a rock opera lol. Seriously check it out. Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley are amazingly underrated in their work and Hood was the one who wrote that great article about Tom after his death and calling TPATH and REM the two greatest southern rock bands ever. He ain't wrong. Except in the fact he didn't mention DBT
  15. And got a terrible 80s dance remix as well lol.
