    Lyric Question

    Pretent I'm Samuel Clemens
  2. Another fascinating character who lives into a wasted song... That girl who is a loser and a forgiver, but she still finds good where anyone could. She deserves to be remembered in Tom's voice. She has been deserved a place into the American Treasure. But they left her alone again.
  3. Do you think the "cash" sound in this song has something to do?
  4. I think his silent partner is a prostitute. A classic cliché to portray a man who is alone, a man who pays just to talk; he was not looking for romance... Just someone he could trust.
  5. Another fascinating character is that girl who payed for his cigarettes in that 7-11. They were friends at first sight, maybe because they both were different from the rest of the people... There is no need of any explanation, it was just something in their blood... They were just dogs on the run. Maybe that fascinating girl who payed for his cigarettes is that bleached blonde who light his cigarettes in a room painted blue and grey...
  6. Sally (the girl who said "bye bye" when she saw the size of the pocketbook of that city man who came to town)... Sometimes I think Sally could be that girl who probably works in a restaurant or sings in a night club. Sally did what she had to do... And she deserves the best of everything in the world. We never know if Sally finally found whatever she was looking for. What do you think?

    Question About "American Girl"

    I don't know about that different mix 45 Guy is talking about. But the isolated tracks from American Girl were on youtube. Anyone who has a simple software just lke audiacity can make new "mixes" if he had the isolated tracks and a little bit of skill and a little bit of musical sense. But I doubt a homemade mix ended up in a radio station. But who knows. Now I can't find that isolated tracks. Unfortunately I don't have a copy. Someone here has this tracks?

    Damn the Torpedoes

    Louisiana Rain is one of my favourites. 😁 "Casa Dega" it's a great track from that sessions, it's not into the album, but it is a great one. Next? Hard Promises? (Something Big is one of my favourites from this album)

    WTH??? Best of everything 11/9/18??

    Yes, in the new release. I was talking about the "alternate take" included into the American Treasure before knowing about this new release. You can call me mean minded. But I guess the first intention was to include the extra verse version version into the AT box. But later, someone thought that it will be fit better in a new compilation tittled "The best of everything".

    WTH??? Best of everything 11/9/18??

    I'm really pissed off with this new release. I said this thing the last week in the "American Treasure" thread about the "alternate take" of "The best of everything" included in the American Treasure box: "The best of everything". They say this track belongs to the SA sessions.... yes? Well, it is the same track used in SA, and we all know that this track belongs to the HP sessions. The main difference (in my ears) between the album track and this "alternate take" is a keyboard. The album track has a keyboard, and this alternate take don't. Apart from that keyboard, little things, little details, but the basic tracks are just the same. I think it would be a better and a more interensting choice, to put into the box the "naked basic tracks" wtithout the overdubs made by Robbie Robertson. I want to hear "The best of everything" without the layers added by Robbie. There is, at least, one early live performance of this song from the early eighties with an extra verse. Maybe they have recorded this extra verse, I don't know, and maybe Robbie cut that verse to make the song more suitable... It is only a speculation. In any case a naked version without the horns it would be a more interesting thing." Now I know that i was right. But the natural place to this take is the American Treasure box. Two compilations in a row with a bunch of songs that we all already have it's not an elegant way to pay tribute to Tom. Well, at least this is my point of view. Tom's heirs don't know about his fight against the price rise before the Hard Promises release? If you reach back in your memory a little bell might ring, about a time that once existed when money wasn't king... Well, it seems that Tom's heritage is in the hands of that guy named Joe. Yes, that guy that makes the big wheels roll.
  11. I said this thing the last week. From tompetty.com: "The Best Of Everything is the first career-spanning collection of all of Tom Petty’s hits with The Heartbreakers, his solo work and Mudcrutch. The 38-track set also features two previously unreleased tracks: the poignant and autobiographical “For Real” and the collection’s lead single—an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 1985 album, Southern Accents. Available for pre-order as a 2-disc CD, featuring deluxe packaging." Well, I think we don't not deserve this kind of treat. Two releases in a row. A bunch of songs we already have. And a little dose of unreleased tracks. No. This is not the way. Sorry.
  12. About the coda... I don't know what to think. For me the coda is a beautiful exercise of cynicism. I guess the meaning of that end depends of the mood of the listener. A hopeful end or a cynical end. In any case one of my favourite tracks from HE. I feel like a shadow's falling over me.
  13. I guess these are the real alternate takes: -Louisiana Rain -King of the Hill -Wake up time -Don't fade on me (?) (Very similar to the album version, but it has a different vocal track, there are new lyrics, I guess it is not the same vocal track. There are differences. I guess it is a completely different take, but I'm not completely sure, maybe the album version is a splice of this take with another take? The album take seems to be a little quickened. I don't know.) -You and me -Sins of my youth -Good enough (?) I can't tell the main differences for now. I have to think that if they recorded the songs live in the studio, this take must be a different take... To be honest. I don't know. Well, all the other alternate takes, are the same album takes with a different mix or edited in a different form, maybe some little differences, or great differences (just like the ending of What are you doing in my life or You're gonna get it, or the begining of Like a Diamond) maybe some of them without some overdubs... but after all, the same takes from the albums. Those of you who have sharp ears... please share your insights about the alternate takes.
  14. I still don't have the physical box in my hands. I have to wait a little bit too. I have high quality digital flacs. I'm listening the whole thing without the booklets, and there are a bunch of things that come to my mind and I want to know what they say about some of these "alternate takes". Well, about some of the alternate takes... I think most of them there aren't real "alternate takes". Some of these alternate takes are just "different mixes" or"different edits"; many of these "alternate takes" are the same takes used in the albums. The same vocal track in most of the cases. To name one: "The best of everything". They say this track belongs to the SA sessions.... yes? Well, it is the same track used in SA, and we all know that this track belongs to the HP sessions. The main difference (in my ears) between the album track and this "alternate take" is a keyboard. The album track has a keyboard, and this alternate take don't. Apart from that keyboard, little things, little details, but the basic tracks are just the same. I think it would be a better and a more interensting choice, to put into the box the "naked basic tracks" wtithout the overdubs made by Robbie Robertson. I want to hear "The best of everything" without the layers added by Robbie. There is, at leat, one early live performance of this song from the early eighties with an extra verse. Maybe they have recorded this extra verse, I don't know, and maybe Robbie cut that verse to make the song more suitable... It is only a speculation. In any case a naked version without the horns it would be a more interesting thing.
  15. Shadow people and Faulty Lines are the strongest numbers on Hypnotic Eye. Shadow people is Tom's pessimistic perception of the world. A world that Tom saw through his hypnotic eyes. The bass line in this song is awesome, just like a heartbeat when you see this crappy world. The best choice to close this album.
