    It was a great show indeed, Mike, glad you could make it!
    I thought Petty looked fine and was in top voice and spirit - almost giddy at times!
    Tom was cracking jokes, telling funny stories, making goofy faces and generally having a ball! 
    And, as a seasoned Fillmore patron, I can explain that the logjam on the way out is normal and is a by-product of the much-loved tradition of handing out a concert poster to each person as they exit. Well worth the wait if you ask me!
    If possible, I recommend you buy a cardboard tube (any post office should have one for maybe $3.00) to safeguard your poster inside of your luggage.
    How cool to have an original Fillmore poster hanging at your home in the UK - especially from a Mudcrutch concert!
    Enjoy!

    been to 3 MUD shows, and they've been signing, smiling, talking, mingling like I've never, ever seen before (although could be getting a little worn out) .. only thing seemingly stopping them is if they're in a hurry to leave town after gig

    You can still buy it in iTunes.Not sure about the U.S., but in the Australian store it's only $2.99!

    Well, we flew to Vancouver, BC two weeks ago, and have worked our way down since then. That flight was 9.5 hours.

    Any farmers care to meet us before Sunday's show? We've come all the way from UK for this one and it would be great to meet some of you.

    Here's my amateur deciphering of SAVE YOUR WATER (chords & lyrics):  [verses] G-C-G-C-G[sus4]; [chorus] Am-C-G-Am-C-G-Em-D[add4]-C-D-G
    Well you're right that no one informed you, I guess I should have warned you, it's all a contest.  And you said they all wanted to hide you, but when they got deep inside you, it's a big mess. 
    And you know me better now and you see I'm in the middle.  And you don't know why or how but you sold me down your river.  And I'm just plain ol' sandwiched in-between.  So save your water woman I won't drink out of your stream.
    Well the shouts of a thousand disciples, and the brass Winchester rifles, brought the house down.  And I know that I don't concern you, but life's got a way it can burn you, you lose the high ground.
    [Chorus]
    You're a match that I have burned, you're a page that I have turned, and you know the rest.  You know I'd never steal your water, it was your whining boss-man's daughter, your half-brother confessed.
    [Chorus]

    Not 100% sure on some of these lyrics.  Feel free to correct me.....
     
    Beautiful Blue                                         Tom Petty           Dm – Am   

     
            Dm                                                             Am

    The shadows from the footlights…….made you fifty foot tall

       Dm                                              Am

    I watched you as the music………bounced around the hall

           Dm                                                   Am

    You called me in the morning………and sent your car for me

       Dm                                                         Am

    I stumbled as I kissed you……..dropping ashes in your tea

           

                              C            Bb                           F                       

    I want to wrap you up in a beautiful blue    (3x)

                G                   C           Bb

    I do………….I do


     


    Dm – Am  (2x)

     
               Dm                                              Am

    Around you there’s a color……….a shade unlike the rest

                Dm                                                          Am

    You’re laughing and you’re easy……………the way I know you best


     
       Chorus     Solo           (verse & chorus)


     
                Dm                                             Am
    Gonna move outside the city………….I know some friends out there

           Dm                                                             Am

    In a tree with painted bottles………..watch the sun dance on your hair


     
      Chorus

    A quite insightful and interesting band interview article here that fits in well with this thread....Mike in particular has a couple of stand out quotes ....love the one  “We’re not going to throw in ‘Refugee’ to save the festival.”

    I just listened for the first time all the way through and I am absolutely distraught that I am not able to get to one of the shows this time around! The album is AMAZING!! Even better as a whole than what I already loved in the previews on TP radio and even the NPR preview. Dreams of flying and Hope really stand out more on the album. Of course I am still totally hooked on Victim of Circumstance and ready to bow down in respect with tears in my eyes to I Forgive it All. Every song has special qualities all to its own. I love that they each got to do one of their own songs, yet the album is really a solid piece of work with real flow. I absolutely love it!

    PART 2 then....
    'Hope', this screams 'She's The One' album to me! Ironically, it's Benmont's keys in this one that make me think that....without the keys it would hide the 'She's The One' reference point, but then again wouldn't be as good a song without the keys which actually makes the song...I'm also getting ''Hey Baby, you're a free girl now'' from High Grass Dogs DVD based on the drum pattern here....quite a nasel tone in Toms voice...maybe he had a cold when cutting this one...like this one a lot!
    'Welcome To Hell'...a great homage to Jerry Lee Lewis here, if anything I would have liked to hear an extended 'Killer' jam from Benmont at the end of this one...it ends quite abruptly...so maybe a missed opportunity for Benmont to really cut loose on the piano on an extended solo.
    'Save Your Water'..ah yes, the other one I had in my 'bottom two' after the radio premiere. This one really clicked upon first listen on the album....there's a southern country rock authenticity and purity to this one that I missed out on first time around. 'Save your water woman I won't drink out of your stream', love that lyric! Again, one of those where the lyrics really fit the song and there's more than one stream of consciousness going on!
    'Victim Of Circumstance', the more I listen to this the more I like it....love Mikes vocal delivery here, laid back but right on the money...serving the songs needs with an understated hint of panache....just like his playing. We need more singing from Mike! Similiar to 'Welcome To Hell' this one is at least two minutes too short though which is a bit frustrating.
    'Hungry No More', for some reason this one reminds me of the atmosphere of 'Free As A Bird' the song that was put together around the time of the release of The Beatles Anthology documentary all those years ago....the best compliment I can give this is that in my view only 'Dreams Of Flying' and 'I Forgive It All' could be considered better...and even then you'd have to splice and dice some thin threads to justify that...certainly these three comfortably belong in the same ball park of excellence. After the radio premiere I had these three and 'Hope' as the strongest songs I liked best....since buying the album 'Hope' has slipped out of that bracket a bit....and 'Beautiful Blue' is fighting hard for re-examination...there's something about that song that I can't make up my mind about....guess the only thing for it is to keep listening to it until I find the answer! 
    So to summarise, I'd give this a four out of five star rating overall....great job on recording the album..it sounds great, even on CD, so can only imagine how good it sounds on vinyl...i'm always clamouring for external producers to produce Tom/Heartbreakers/Mudcrutch but great job on this one. On another note, i can't under estimate the value and importance of Benmont to the album....he really rounds out the sound with intelligent flourises here and there to really accentuate the songs....the lack of enough Benmont on Hypnotic Eye (i know he was working on his own album but not sure if that was the full reason for his lack of keys on the record as a whole...it's a bass heavy record so maybe that was deliberate in terms of the way they wanted to get the sound for that album..but still)  really inhibited that album from reaching it's full sound potential I thought....so maybe after 'Wildflowers All The Rest' we can get a re-recorded deluxe HE release with Dreams Of Flying included! 
    On a more humorous note....they missed a trick by not having a closing 'Jerry Springer Final Thought' with Jerry saying his trademark ''Take care of yourself, and each other''. It would have fit in well with some of the tales of the songs in the album that could easily be linked to the type of characters and stories that featured on The Jerry Springer Show!
