  1. I'm enjoying the tunes on YouTube right now , not being able to afford the box set , plus there's tons of other stuff coming out now so I've got to wait. Anyway the one good thing about this box set , and maybe the powers to be are thinking this too , Tom's fans aren't getting any younger. Now the Beatles last year came out with the Sgt.Pepper box set , 50 years later....ok so I was 12 when I got it originally , so I made it , but I know several other Beatle fans that died before the 50 th anniversary. They would've loved it . Same with the coming soon white album box set. Now for Tom , I started to really get into him around the time of FMF...so I had to back track all his older stuff. But say if you were 20 in 76 ...you're up there now and you won't be here for the 50th..of say " wild flowers " , so it's best to get it out to the fans. It's like after Elvis died all these outakes , alt versions , etc came out. There's even a label that just puts out stuff for fans. Maybe that's what will happen with Tom. The Beach Boys have had several archival releases these past few years of digital downloads only. But once again , I know Beach Boys fans who are no longer around that would've loved these releases. In closing in my opinion , bring it on.

    Thoughts on Hypnotic Eye...TPATH's best record!

    There's a song on the Rolling Stones " between the buttons " UK version or the US " flowers" CD/album called " please go home " that has the same groove as " forgotten man ". When I first heard this cd , I figured Tom was reaching back to his youth for inspiration . Check it out on you tube and see what you think. Great review though.

    So Mike is in Fleetwood Mac ?

    Maybe she should have done " the insider " or " stop draggin .." instead. It would've still shown Tom's talent and her friendship , or even " the apartment song "....but her voice just doesn't sound right on ff....she sounds to low on the verses...

    So Mike is in Fleetwood Mac ?

    I just heard the radio advertising for FM appearance in Detroit. With FM's hits ( non Buckingham ones ) the announcer says each name...with Mick Fleetwood, etc. , Etc. And then finally Mike Campbell....no mention of heartbreaker guitarist , etc. This may bring his name out more than ever. .there may even be some who don't know he was with Tom Petty....I think this could proove to be a good move for Mike .

    TP Question

    I liked both books...and I have the running down a dream book too. I own the conversation one , it's a great read for song info as is the booklet in the box set . The biography I read from the library , along with another one that I can't remember who wrote it. Anyway to me it's sad , to think Tom was so low on depression and anxiety , but pain can do that to you. As will health problems , which he certainly had,but hid well. It always amazes me when I read about someone I admire is as depressed as myself.
