    Tom Petty's Buried Treasure Show

    The SiriusXM gods smiled on me this weekend, so I could hear Tom Petty Radio again (I refuse to pay for full subscription to get one channel...). Anyway, they've been talking about re-airing the first two hours of the launch from three years ago where Tom played a set of just his songs. They're airing it today (Monday 11/26) and tomorrow (11/27). Will someone be recording this? I'd love to hear it. I think it has rare tracks in it?

    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    Why does "Casa Dega" make it to this record? Was it considered for Southern Accents? I thought it was a Damn the Torpedoes outtake.

    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    I feel that with the release of the new box, and the conversation in the Fricke interview (part one) where they say that fans could create their own alternate Southern Accents we should revive this thread in the light of the new tracks from the box. Benmont mentions that "Walkin' From The Fire" could have been on Southern Accents. The alternate versions of "Rebels" and "The Best of Everything." They also mention "Apartment Song" which posters on this thread agree. What say the 'crutchers? 🙂

    TP Radio (XM) Special Announcement this week

    Amazon will typically do pre-orders with an estimated price. I've gotten a couple of albums in the past on pre-order for less than the price they finally listed. $25 seems pretty close to what it should sell for, since this is the 4 CD version without the additional bonus book.

    TP Radio (XM) Special Announcement this week

    It looks like they don't really know either. Lots of stock references but no confirmation either way.

    TP Radio (XM) Special Announcement this week

    It seems uncertain since we have two different listings now on discogs. Where did you read about it?

    TP Radio (XM) Special Announcement this week

    I was thinking about making a new thread about this, but apparently there is an influx of new/sealed Live Anthology vinyl boxes in the market right now going for around $170. There is some confusion about this-- a distributor had them, and the rumors are either that there was some "dead stock" discovered, or alternatively there is a 2018 re-pressing. https://www.discogs.com/Tom-Petty-The-Heartbreakers-The-Live-Anthology/release/2355753 or https://www.discogs.com/Tom-Petty-The-Heartbreakers-The-Live-Anthology/release/12218880 If this is a repress, then it is rumored to be 140g, instead of 180g, and the hype sticker is wrong. The two sellers I talked to about it said that the box sets are nearly identical to the original pressing. At any rate, if you wanted Live Anthology on vinyl, this is your chance.

    Highway Companions Club Mudcrutch Live 2016

    Nevermind! The club sent me a new link, so I have it now!
  10. Hi, My dad is a member of Highway Companions and he got the Fenway mp3's, but seems to not have gotten the Mudcrutch email. When did everyone get the email for it? I have sent an email to the email address listed for the fanclub for help as well. Thanks! Mike

    2017 Tour Trail - memories, pics, songs played

    As promised, here is the link to Dan Stiles' website with one of the 2017 tour posters. He said OKC was the only one he has copies of. Kind of cool since it is signed (as the VIP ones are not, though they are numbered). $40 is a steal, frankly. http://www.danstiles.com/mainshop/tom-petty-co-2017-7eczh UPDATE: These posters are actually screened by Dan, as opposed to the digital offset printed ones that VIP got. Also, this is larger than the VIP ones.

    2017 Tour Trail - memories, pics, songs played

    Oh, I also confirmed that Dan Stiles, who did this year's and the 2014 Red Rocks posters did all 50 posters for this tour. He told me that sometime this week he will be putting up artist proofs for some of the posters. http://www.danstiles.com/

    2017 Tour Trail - memories, pics, songs played

    I'll admit that I didn't go back and review any setlists from any show this year or previous. I don't think that I've heard "Rockin' Around With You" in the recent years shows I went to (United Center for 2010 and 2014). I was happy to hear a track from "She's The One." He played "Walls" and joked that it was a request of his. As far as I remember he played "Angel Dream" in 2014. He said that they hadn't played "You Got Lucky" in a lot of years. Yes. I think they were a really great addition. Plus, their voices seemed to blend well with Scott's. Not familiar with the "bad rep" people are giving the singers. I'm not sure how you can think that the addition of very talented harmony vocals to the mix would be a bad thing. It's not like they were upstaging anyone. It is the Internet, I guess.

    2017 Tour Trail - memories, pics, songs played

    My dad is a longtime member of Highway Companions, and he has been buying VIP tickets for my two brothers and me since the 2010 Mojo tour. It's kind of a "boys night out" we try to do once a year. It isn't always Petty, but it has been for the last few years. We had tickets for Des Moines Monday night. He bought 2nd row center seats for us. This is the 5th time I've seen Petty since 1987 (My dad's 7th time). Some quick thoughts about this show. It was probably the best Petty show I've seen-- with the Last DJ stop in Cedar Rapids being the next best. For whatever reason, the 2014 Hypnotic Eye stop in Chicago seemed a little low-energy from Tom. He seemed kind of tired to me. Still a good show, but Des Moines was a lot of fun. Maybe it's because he was deliberately pulling songs from other albums that might not get as much attention, and the block of Wildflowers songs. It could be that the audience in Des Moines seemed REALLY into it, and the band was responding to that. The addition of The Webb Sisters really pushed the show over the top in terms of vocals and even their running-dancing during "Refugee" was really great. I've got a lot of pictures and video that my brother and I shot that I'll be posting somewhere and linking here when I get around to sorting that out. The VIP goodies were pretty nice. The 40th duffel bag isn't as nice as the Hypnotic Eye army bag-- and I don't really like the 40th logo. There is a metal and enamel 40th keychain and an embossed wallet, too. The really nice bonus is the limited edition numbered lithograph (out of 250) that is unique to each stop. It is hand-numbered and not signed. Does anyone know who printed this or who the artist is? I'd like to add it to the expresso-beans database. Mike

    Live Mudcrutch 2016 on Tom Petty Radio

    You're right, it's probably fake news. I retract my initial response. In the words of Trump, "sad."
