  1. I miss Benmont on HE. He is lost somewhere in the mix. Not a 100% Hearbreakers sound alike album.
  2. You can also see Stan playing drums on YDKHIF and on Girl on LSD in the Bridge School 94. They also played Time to move on, but to be honest, I don't know if Stan is playing something or if he is just killing time behind the drum kit during this one.
  3. This is not right. Howie plays and sings harmonies on more songs. Check the booklet. Howie sings harmonies in YDKHIF.
  4. The other day while I was listening some Tracy Chapman's old cd's I realized that Mike played in Tracy's third album (Matters of the Heart). It's not my favourite album by Tracy. Do you remember "Bang, bang, bang"?... Mike played electric guitar in this one... A forgettable work I guess... Well he plays in several songs, but Mike's guitar is lost under the annoying and prominent sound of the keyboard of Roy Bittan... Well, Mike adds a nice mandolin in Woman's Work.
  5. I did not know the song "A little bit of soul" until I heard Tom's cover. The first thing that came to my mind when I heard that riff for the very first time... Oh my god Tom is covering an spanish song!
  6. It is one of the most important songs of the album. Room at the top, Echo, One more night... Devastating songs, they put you down... But Rhino Skin is just like, hey, I'm down but I have elephant balls to keep running through this world.

  8. It is an outtake from Wildflowers. Probably it was recoded the same day he recorded To Find a Friend (Ringo!). The harmonies were recorded some time later. It is a wonderful song about lost dreams and hope.
  9. I don't know. I hear some homages in this album... A guitar which sounds just like George Harrison, a little bit of J. Cash, maybe a kind of "wilbury"song, a little bit of R. Mcguinn... And maybe more things that I'm unable to grasp. Some trip "companions" after all.
  10. Yes. I suppose. Another reading of that cover. A monkey on a rocket... It is an experiment! A monkey on an unfamiliar environment... Let"s see if he survives! Just like Tom on that album... Playing the drums, bass, keyboards... It was a kind of experiment... And probably he was afraid... Just like a monkey on a rocket!
  11. I like the plane on the pool picture on the sleeve on LMU... Probably nowadays I lke the picture most than the album. 😱 I like a lot Highway Companion. It is really high on the pile. Maybe Ankle Deep isn't the best track on that album, but I love that song. It has the repeat button effect on me .
  12. Interesting discussion about LAD. I don't know how to rank LAD in my personal ranking. It was never an album that I have played constantly. It was a victim of my "first opinion about", probably a wrong opinion. That was my first opinion: It is a weak album... so my LAD was condemned to be covered with dust on the shelf. Sins of my youth!. How I was able to play constantly "Let me up" and not LAD? This is a mistery. Nowadays, Let me Up is without a doubt in the lowest position of my personal rank. Althought my first opinion about the whole album could be wrong, there is one thing that remains as true for me: Straight into Darkness is one of the finest songs Tom ever wrote. The lyrics and the music. The alt take/alt mix included in the AT box is awesome. Sounds different, I prefer this kind of sound. The bass line is more audible, (what a bass!) that bass, that piano, the guitar, the drums... And those lyrics... Not a happy song, not pop, for sure. Probably LAD is not one of my favourite albums, but Straight into darkness is one of the better songs by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.
  13. I haven't seen this one for ages (I have the vhs tape but nowadays I don't have a vhs player). I guess I have a downloaded digital copy somewhere. I like a lot this film. But it is a little bit dissapointing the way someone mixed the footage. In almost every song there are footage from the two days. Tom's scarf is the proof!
  14. I'm not at home, I can't listen the song right now, but I think you are right. Yes, probably what I call a "second voice" is a low harmony (I don't know anything about harmonies!). What is clear is that detail. A little detail which adds a lot of beauty and sadness at the same time. Just my thoughts.
