  1. Thanks for this information. I wonder how The Last DJ would have turned out with Bottrell producing.
  2. Warren Zanes interviewing Roberts:
  3. Per the Warren Zanes book Roberts also helped renegotiate the MCA deal to give Petty creative control, and arranged his tour with Farm Aid appearance and subsequent tour with Bob Dylan.
  4. Apologies, thread title should have "Elliot" with just one "t" (moderators feel free fix). Roberts on Petty at 3:46:45: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDKTccPDDTw
  5. Roberts bankrolled the MCA lawsuit. Petty credits him with giving him the pivotal career advice to focus on quality, not commercial success. He told Petty all his albums couldn't be hits "but they can all be good." "Focus on the product." Tom petty discusses at 21:50 here youtube.com/watch?v=q-Gegta0vRA and at 29:54 here youtube.com/watch?v=q-Gegta0vRA Runnin' Down A Dream features Roberts at 2:17:00: youtube.com/watch?v=QDKTccPDDTw

    Peace in LA video

    Lowest budget video to this point. I think "Swingin'" must be the last one they spent real money on.
  10. Don't like the song. Don't like "Mary's New Car." Don't like "Spike." Really don't like "Make It Better" (can't believe they made it a single). Love the rest of the album.
  11. Goes through Mudcrutch and studio work (including with Dylan). Performance at the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hswqQUUhVYs
  12. Could someone please consult the linter notes and advise what differences, if any, there are between the original versions of the following songs and the American Treasure versions (even if just remastering)?: "Alright For Now" "You And I Will Meet Again" "Down South" any other Jeff Lynne-produced track from American Treasure that I've missed Also, do the notes list musician credits for the above tracks? Any production credit for "King Of The Hill"? Thanks.

    For those of you with the Warren Zanes book, pages 288-91 cover Mike's demos and Tom's request that he not make an album from them.
