    Classic Rock Video of the Day II

    That was an a amazing jam. I was lucky enough to catch Floyd live in 87 and again in 94 and they did not disappoint. the 87 show was particularly amazing as I got a very last minute (literally) ticket, my sister boyfriend at the time worked for a limo company and didn't sell a package. The night of the show I took a limo to Providence RI after being asked moments after being asked if I wanted a ticket. IIRC the ticket was free but I tipped the driver well, when my sister found out I had given the driver 40 bucks or so I (I was 16 at the time) she got pissed at me as I'd guess I made her look bad or something. LOL Its one of the very few nice things she has done for me over the years...

    Steve Ferrone comments on what’s to come

    sorry Nourdna was not implying you should delete or whatnot. I have no doubt it may have been recently re-blogged or re posted elsewhere as that is the nature of the internet. I'd liken it to the Rolling Stone article with Adria calling the initial lawsuit a "nothing burger" that was posted just last week, days before she filed her own dang lawsuit against Dana. Sadly the net moves at the speed of light..... I apologize if I came across as brusque, I'm just ticked off at the estate right now. Welcome to the farm as a fellow Petty head rock on!

    New TPATH Releases

    Well, its impossible to know when Adria spoke to Rolling Stone in regards to the release of the new video "For Real" but at best her quote from that article seems disingenuous in light of the counter suit she just filed. The whole thing leaves me sad. Clearly Tom never expected this to be such an issue. I don't want to take sides its ridiculous as we are all Petty Fans on both sides of this coin. I just wish both parties would honor his legacy slow their roll on pushing merch and take their time and maybe not be so public in their dispute. I came to the sad realization yesterday that the days of me seeing "shed shows" are mostly behind me. I might go see the Who, but I have no real interest in Fleetwood Mac, I might have gone to see them had they picked any song but Free Fallin to honor Tom. That song has more than worn thin for me over the years and sounds like a funeral dirge on the live recordings than an upbeat tribute. This band brought me a magic in live shows that can't compare stagnant set lists aside Tom and the boys were amazing performers. I still go out and see people like John Hiatt and Buddy Guy still shreds for someone that is 82 years young. Musically speaking most of the people I want to see are doing smaller more intimate venues which does me fine rather than paying $300 for a single seat. I will happily line up to see Ben or The DK if they come to Boston but this is really the end of an era and its hitting a rather sour note with the infighting we are witness to.

    What Music Are You Listening To Right Now?

    some John Lee Hooker to get me movin today.
  8. I got an email from Run out the Groove regarding a vote to release "the longest day" by the Del Fuegos on vinyl for the first time since the 80s. I really like that band and was lucky enough to catch them several times over the years including 87 on the Rock and Roll Caravan. what surprised me most was the following statement in their biography: "Tom Petty was a fan of the Del Fuegos and appeared on one of the band’s songs and even featured them as an opening act on one of his tours." I found that statement repeated on other sites but not the name of the song Tom was on. Can a fellow Mudder let me know what song Tom was on? I believe I have all of their CD's and a few on vinyl but never realized Tom was on on of the songs.... Full Del Fuegos bio below from Run out the groove. http://www.runoutgroovevinyl.com/product/longest-day-41626?eml=2019May10/4627478/6416261&etsubid=32891214 Bonus article by Warren about their tour with Tom. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/tom-pettys-biographer-looks-back-on-their-30-year-friendship-125218/

    Tom Petty was on a Del Fuegos song???

    Thanks guys! Stand Up for sure is a hot mess of an album and one I don't revisit very much. (Boston Mass on the other hand is to me a classic and brings me back to a simpler time etc.) I cant take this place, and Name Names are two of the best of the bunch. but the strangest and worst song the band recorded is A lot to drink today. That track all but kills the album. Long slide for an out is another stand out track. Its a bit surprising they had Tom on that track as the vinyl only mentions him and other guest in very tiny print on the inner liner notes. The most noteworthy thing on the outer label is there is a cut out to allow the album to 'stand up' and that it was also 'available on cassette'.
  10. wow, the good girl one is so crappy looking. Totally wrong font color so it just blends with his shirt. I realize its a meme and not a product but <sigh> its just tarnishing his legacy to do this stuff.
  11. I've all too slowly been collecting Fillmore shows for ages off and on. I just hope this does not mean they disappear if they don't release every show in their entirety which I would gladly pay for. Also its very cool to not they recorded all their shows digitally for the past 15 years.... Cold be some excellent things in the vault. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/tom-petty-wildflowers-fillmore-shows-722069/ Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers Considering ‘Wildflowers’ Box Set, 1997 Fillmore Release “The 1997 Fillmore run was almost the pinnacle of the band just being totally spontaneous night to night to night,” says Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell By ANDY GREENE Tom Petty's Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell says the group is considering a 'Wildflowers' box set and the release of the band's 1997 Fillmore shows. Pat Johnson/REX Shutterstock The new Tom Petty box set An American Treasure won’t hit stores until September 28th, but his team is already thinking about future archival releases. Nothing is definite at the moment, but Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell tells Rolling Stone that the group hopes to release a live set commemorating their 1997 residency at the Fillmore in San Francisco. They played 20 sold-out shows at the historic theater in January and February of that year, radically changing the setlist each night. In 2009, seven songs from the Fillmore run were released on the Live Anthology compilation, but that was just a tiny sampling of their total collection. “For me, that was almost the pinnacle of the band just being totally spontaneous night to night to night,” says Campbell. “We might throw in a Grateful Dead song that we just learned that afternoon. We recorded every show and we had guest artists from Bo Diddley to Roger McGuinn to John Lee Hooker. And I know, in my memory of those 20 nights, there’s an amazing album in there.” The Petty vault is overflowing with other concert recordings, particularly from the past 15 years when they began taping every single show digitally, but Campbell is unsure how many of them will ever see the light of day. “Before we went digital, we just made analog recordings here and there,” he says. “But most of the digital recordings we have are just the same songs over and over. I don’t know how much interest there will be in them, but they’re all earmarked and just sitting there. I’d be hesitant to release anything that wasn’t great, though. Some nights, guitars were out of tune or someone sang out of pitch. You have to be careful compromising Tom’s excellence because he liked stuff to be good.” A Wildflowers box set is also in the works, something that Petty frequently spoke of in his final years. The 1994 album was originally envisioned as a two-disc set, meaning many songs got cut for space when it was truncated. “I think I put four of the [Wildflowers outtakes] on the She’s the Onesoundtrack just to fill out the album,” Petty told Rolling Stone in 2017. “But they were very hastily mixed. Take ‘Climb That Hill.’ There’s a version of that on She’s the One, but the Wildflowers one I think is extremely better. I’m gonna put that out. ‘Hung Up And Overdue’ is another one we remixed and it turned into an epic. I had Carl Wilson [of the Beach Boys] and [Heartbreakers bassist] Howie Epstein singing quite a bit of harmony that didn’t come through on the original. Then again, there’s probably six songs that nobody has heard. There’s 11 or 12 [new] songs on the album. I think people are going to like it a lot. I like it a lot.” Now that he’s gone, his former collaborators are determined to see the projection to fruition. “I see that in the cards,” says producer Ryan Ulyate. “It’s going to be fantastic.” There’s also talk of deluxe editions of key albums from Petty’s catalog. “If there’s a market for something like that,” says Campbell, “we’ll do it.”

    Wildflowers BOX set and Filmore release potential!

    Well, I'm glad to here Adria call the lawsuits a 'nothing burger' and that she and Dana get along etc. Sadly I wonder how true it is as incidentally I used to see Dana and Annikim cross liking each others post on Instagram but I haven't seen that since word of the lawsuits was out at all. I have a lot of respect for Adria, Anakim and Dana as from what I have seen they all seem like kind genuine people on FB and Insta etc. as well as in published interviews. It would be great to see either of these releases as the Fillmore shows were simply amazing from what I have heard in bootlegs from both soundboard and audience recordings, I for one would totally be up for a ridiculous box set of all 20 nights, better would be release of individual shows over a period of time like Pearl Jam did some time ago for a bunch of shows. As for All the Rest I will be happy with anything they have to offer and I would geek out for a box but a double album so to speak will do me fine as well... I'd love to hear the unreleased tracks and fresh mixes on the rest... Easily one of my all time favorite albums of any artist as it already stands.

    Three days....

    For Real. Anyone have a guess as to what TomPetty.com is up to? Dare I get excited its an announcement for All the Rest? Or would they hype the drop of a new video of "For Real" this heavily? Inquiring minds want to know.... 💘 Strange timing for this... that was posted yesterday so maybe we get more later today...
  14. Hoodoo Man

    Three days....

    and to more or less complete the cycle here it is. They did a decent job. Not sure how much a fan I am of them mixing old concert footage with the newer songs that never got played live but overall the video works. God I miss Tom...
  15. Hoodoo Man

    Three days....

    So they announced today that there is one more day until the release of the new music video for For Real. Kinda sad they would make a fuss about a single music video coming a month or more after a greatest hits package. I suspected that this was the case from the start based on the legal issues Dana and the girls are having that it wouldn't be All the Rest but I can dream cant I? . That said I noticed on the TP site they have a YouTube playlist for TBOE. 28 video tracks from the set.... Kinda nice they put this together....

    Three days....

    they posted a big 2 today with the same hashtags. I suspect its the drop of the For Real video, I recall reading Adria was working on one before the legal battles started.... 🤔

    Bennmont in CA 7/17-7/-21

    wish I was, I did see a conversation with Ben on Insta that said he plans to do a nationwide tour behind his new album so we have that to look forward to as well! I live on the east coast so live vicariously for most of the knob shows and Ben's shows this far as they haven't come within 4 hrs of me as yet aside from the Mac which I have limited interest in. I'm tempted to see them just for mike but those ticket prices are steep and I dont like nose bleed seats...

    Benmont Fri 25 July 2019 Newport Folk Festival

    Just a correction, there are single day tickets that were sold early on. But the entire thing is sold out now, the Newport people do have a resale section where someone can return unused tickets to be resold at face value but the sign up for that seems to be blind where you enter your info and are sold the ticket when your turn comes I don't have much interest in the artists beyond Benmont, I saw Sheryl Crow years ago but no longer follow her music and Im not a huge fan of Phil Leish and friends - those were the artists I recognized for Friday. Stub Hub has tickets for Friday but they start at $175 for GA, I guess they were about $90 before fees so its not awful but I'm really cheap... So I did just check the website and it does let you select one day Friday tickets. Will have to see if my wife has any interest in this show.... Seems a single ticket single day ticket is possibility... hmmmm

    Benmont Fri 25 July 2019 Newport Folk Festival

    If anyone stumbles across reasonalbly priced 1 day tickets for this I would love to go! Had I know he would play this I would have lined up for tix ages ago but its been sold out for a while now. Seems the Newport allows tickets to be resold by original purchasers but it does not seem to allow you to pick single day tix vs the 3 day. http://www.newportfolk.org/benmont-tench FRIDAY JULY 26, 2019 ARTIST LINKS FACEBOOK / TWITTER / INSTAGRAM / SPOTIFY ARTIST BIO “Here’s a guy who is a founding member of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers,one of the biggest rock and roll bands in the world. That would be enough for most folks, right? But Benmont might just be the most restless, searching musician I know. It's like his life has been an immersion program in music. At their invitation, he's been in the room with legends from every generation, playing his ass off, learning everything he can from every player he meets. And, believe me, it's all stored in his mind, ready to come out his fingertips. He turns up everywhere . . . and when he does, things always get more musical.” – Don Was FOUNDATION DONATION Newport Festivals Foundation has made a donation on behalf of Benmont to support Tipitina’s Foundation. This donation will enable the Foundation to continue their youth music intern program – a program which has successfully equipped the musicians of tomorrow with the skill set and support needed for a music career.

    Wildflowers on Vinyl

    They are producing it, its just only sold as part of a box set called 'Complete Studio Albums Vol 2' and includes a bunch of albums (Wildflowers, Shes the one, Echo, Highway companion, HE and Mojo) for ~210 on amazon. I believe I heard Benmont quoted as saying this release is better than the original pressing which was limited to ~5K copies and was only 130g and the new version is 180g vinyl... It hasn't been released as a solo Album although the rest of the catalog is still in print / available that way. It was a no brainer for me to get a copy of the box set when I started buying vinyl last year. I suspect somewhat that the resurgence of vinyl coupled with Tom's desire to release all the rest going back at least 5 years has had an influence in the studio not releasing a stand alone vinyl album...

    Same here. I feel bad for posting at this point as what I had seen on FB advertised it as a screening. Sorry!
