  1. In the Interview with Dana, she tells, that TP just started writing his biography shortly before he passed. Now THAT sure would have been such an interesting and fascinating read. So sad.
  2. Wildflowers Full Moon Fever Damn The Torpedoes Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers She's The One Echo You're Gonna Get It Into The Great Wide Open Southern Accents Long After Dark Let Me Up (I've Had Enough) Hard Promises Mojo The Last DJ Hypnotic Eye Highway Companion
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. Here's a great new and looong Interview with Mike and Ben: https://www.goldminemag.com/features/the-heartbreakers-fortify-the-legacy-of-tom-petty
  6. Done. I think, we all should... Such a Goldmine 🙂
  7. Never heard of it before. Thanks! Ordered it right away. Probably not too much new information it it, but we'll see.
  8. 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.
  9. Seems to be a fantastic read, just started. Thanks!!
  10. 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.
  11. Nothing from with a little fun--song for me :-)
  12. Damn, how great some of these Outtakes are. How many artists would have killed, to have one of those on their albums!?
  13. 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 😕
  14. The title "Back into Los Angeles" sound very promising to me somehow. Would love to hear that one...
  15. Found 2 other tunes on this japanese fansite here: https://www.herecomeshb.jp/hb/wild1/song/song-others.htm Boat Song - She's The One Back Into Los Angeles - The Last DJ Have you guys heard of these?
  16. After first listening, I must say, I don't really care for My new Guitar, but Next time You see Memphis is beautiful and would have fitted perfectly on a more southern Southern Accents.
  17. Thanks for your help, Shelter!! Will check those Chicago Five. Worried Guy and Showtime are new to me too. And I though I was a dedicated fan, haha. I'd say, time for American Treasure Part II 😉 But first finally....All The Rest please!
  18. Any chance to hear Next time you see Memphis and My new Guitar?? Never heard of em. And what about Reptiles? Are those Songs written by TP?
  19. The line "Driving into sunset, rollin cause we had to roll" just popped into my head out of nowhere and so I listened...Lyrics are sooooo damn good!! Somewhere in between a memory and a dream 😉
  20. I`m in Love will FOREVER be by my favorite Cover by them! They only played it 82/83, right?
  21. Thank you, NightDriver! Just preordered the Deluxe-4CD-Set there for 27,99 Euros. Super cheap!!! Another one for my brother, so we split the shipping costs (about 7,50). About 30 Euros for the Box. Can't wait!!!!
