  1. Full Moon Fever Reissue

    I wouldn't count on a FMF reissue. I heard the interview that he said that (he also mentioned a new mix of Let Me Up). They opted not to do the remix (except on Runaway Trains on the new vinyl). I know TP isn't a fan of Zombie Zoo. And incorporating WFT would be cool. But that tune was recorded before FMF. On top of that, there aren't many outtakes that exits from FMF other than what's out there already and Indiana Girl (Mary Jane's Last Dance). So if there were a deluxe reissue - it would most likely be what's out there already sans for maybe one or two unknown gems and some live material from that corresponding tour.
  2. Tom & Mike interview

    Jim hasn't done lights for TPATH since the 2010 tour. He's retired.
  3. All The Rest article from Rolling Stone

    Yeah...April Fools guys. Sorry to disappoint.
  4. Tom Petty Named 2017 MusiCares Person Of The Year

    It's usually pretty close to a year after the fact. The Dylan one from two years ago has yet to see a release. For the record, there was a facebook live video the night it aired and hearing Waiting For Tonight was awesome.
  5. Has Tom used auto-tune device for Free Fallin' in concert?

    Yeah...I actually think the sound men punch an auto-tuner in on the chorus of both Free Fallin (which already has a delay on it; he's used the delay for many years) and on the chorus to Refugee. You can clearly hear a pitch change when he says "Listen!" In some live performances that I've seen you can really hear it when it's punched in too late. Refugee is especially suspicious because in 2003 they dropped the song down a whole step and five years later they brought it back to the original key. Back in 2003 Campbell said they had to drop the song down a whole step because Tom couldn't hit the high notes in the chorus anymore. Now many years later to say TP can without any technological help is pretty hard to believe. It doesn't bother me or anything, but I think he has a little help from technology.
  6. Drugs and the band.

    How do we know it's supposed to be photoshopped to look like Howie? Perhaps Scott requested the hair addition be added? Just a thought.
  7. It was very good. Tom is on lead vocals with it. Some nice guitar work.
  8. 2017 Tour Buzz

    TPATH played the New Orleans Jazz Fest in 2012; that's probably where they'll be playing in 2017.
  9. At the end of the day, you have to remember it's a business. Yeah we love Petty and the band. But it's a business. And their revenue from physical releases (especially CD's) is dying. So they're going to capitalize on a new revenue stream every chance they can. And the boxset is selling. People are buying it. It's almost guaranteed (most of) these LPs will see an individual release. Why? Because for the very reasons that people won't buy the boxset. They're releasing the boxset first because the profit they'll make on the boxset outweighs the profit they'll make on individual releases. So they'll milk that cow first. Then onto the next. Also, there are "completist" fans out there who need to have every single thing released (not passing judgement, if that's anyone's thing, that's awesome too). I'm sure this boxset appeals to them too. Personally, I think they missed the boat on not releasing the Wildflowers boxset for the holidays. That would have been a bigger cash cow for them and the demand is much higher. But there's a reason for it. Either label problems, production problems, who knows.
  10. Well there are some folks out there that are hardcore audiophiles and have waited for these albums to be remastered and on 180 gram vinyl. I'm not one of them. But if you've got the cash and that's what you want to spend it on, go for it. Am I disappointed that we're getting a vinyl boxset instead of Wildflowers? Yup. But I can't do anything about it. Petty's capitalizing on the vinyl resurgence as well as the understanding that certain LPs of his go for huge amounts on the secondary market. His camp knows that there's a market for those LPs, but won't spend that money on one LP. So for the price of Wildflowers on the secondary market, you can get the whole Vol. 2 boxset. Wanna buy a guitar instead? That's cool too.
  11. Yeah agreed....I'd expect to see all of the albums released separately after the holidays too...
  12. Both are up for pre-sale now: http://store.tompetty.com/the-complete-studio-albums-volume-2-1994-2014.html http://store.tompetty.com/the-complete-studio-albums-volume-1-1976-1991.html
  13. Wildflowers Re-Issue & Tour

    Scratch that...my renewal date was just pushed to late November. SO...the vinyl boxset is all I'm hanging onto for 2016 in terms of anything released. Bummer.
  14. Wildflowers Re-Issue & Tour

    Sadly, the timeline has definitely been shortened for the Wildflowers release for this fall. Keep in mind (just for a benchmark) Springsteen announced his River boxset in mid-Oct for a first week of Dec release - so there is still a small window. There's two things that are keeping my interest though.... 1.) The highway companions membership (for the first time in almost a year) is not being extended beyond 10/31/16 - as of yet. 2.) There was a vinyl re-issue boxset (including Wildflowers) on the docket for a late-Nov release. It has since been pulled from the sites that had it -most likely at the request of the Petty camp to make the announcement themselves. 3.) I've heard of 3 dates now for a spring/summer Heartbreakers tour. It's coming...just don't know when. If HC memberships don't get extended, perhaps by the end of the month we will have some news.
  15. Tom Petty "The Woods"

    Color me surprised...I thought we were going to get a WF outtake; I guess it still could be, but I haven't heard that title floating around from those sessions. Still excited... Thanks BT.
