    The firing of Stan Lynch

    When I listen to the Outro of the extended version of Here Comes My Girl or the live version of "Kings Road" ( The Forum, Inglewood, California, June 28, 1981) both from "American Treasure", I'm stunned how damn good and fitting to the band and the songs Stan was. Such a shame I never got to see the Band live with Stan. To me, he was the perfect drummer for them. I like Steves drumming, but Stans was so unique, one of a kind and had this certain feel and personalitiy in it.

    Old & new interviews with Tom & the Heartbreakers

    From the Goldminemag-Interview: BT: We have so much unreleased material that’s fantastic. Completely unreleased. The demo tapes from my parents’ living room with Mudcrutch live on two tracks that got us the record deal in the first place. We have that and I’d say about a third of that is really stellar. We have almost an entire alternate record which is from the same time as Hypnotic Eye. We have stuff all through that period. That’s the purpose of American Treasure. Did you ever hear the song “You Can Still Change Your Mind”? Did you ever spot this song version deep in Hard Promises, or the Wildflowers album? I don’t think that there would be An American Treasure 2. My hope would be to do something that pays attention to a certain period of the band. I don’t know what anyone’s plan is for that kind of thing. It’s just a dream of mine. I know that there’s a lot that had to be left off of American Treasure. With (Best of Everything) there had to be a comprehensive set. Everyone deserves one. The years we were with Shelter and then MCA, those years are pretty much bookended by the first album with “American Girl” and “Breakdown” and the Into The Great Wide Open record. The Warner period begins with Wildflowers and ends with the second Mudcrutch record. That’s a lot of stuff!

    Interview with author of new book on Southern Accents

    Never heard of it before. Thanks! Ordered it right away. Probably not too much new information it it, but we'll see.

    New TPATH Releases

    I'd love to hear the demos too. On the other hand, if TP had (more or less) finished the project with the 10 additional tracks, one can at least question, why there should be more (unfinished) material on it. Maybe he just didn't want that stuff to be put out.

    Really strange, as TP said numerous times (in public) , how important the Wildflowers-Project was to him. He already had plans to go on tour with the Double-Album... So in this case, things should be clear.

    Damn, how great some of these Outtakes are. How many artists would have killed, to have one of those on their albums!?

    Songs not on Normal Albums

    Personally, I think, some of his best songs are Outtakes: Waiting for tonight Keep a Little Soul Home Trailer (80s Version) Keeping Me Alive Turning Point Casa Dega Lost in your Eyes (Mudcrutch) Long way from Home (Mudcrutch) So I hope, some of the other Outtakes will appear someday soon. TPs Wildflower-Era-Songrwriting couldn't produce a bad song, I think. But this is a story of its own 😕

    The title "Back into Los Angeles" sound very promising to me somehow. Would love to hear that one...
