  1. Random Thoughts Thread

    Whenever I watch the video for Jammin' Me, I get the distinct impression that somebody just figured out how to use greenscreens and couldn't wait to try it out.
  2. Question of the day 2/22/18

    I checked it up here: https://secondhandsongs.com/artist/3040/originals Free Fallin' comes out on top, but American Girl and I Won't Back Down are only 1 behind. I'm not too surprised.
  3. Even The Losers Go Missing At Times

    Nah, it was the TV screens. The arcade game that Tom knocked down was Astro Invaders. Bit of a shame because it likely destroyed it (maybe the cabinet itself would've survived, but not the inner workings, and the monitors are easy to shatter) and Astro Invaders is pretty rare these days.
  4. Even The Losers Go Missing At Times

    Here's my guess: They were planning to include a live video of it, but for some reason they were unable to secure the rights to do so. So rather than simply cut it entirely, they played it up for the humor. I have no evidence to support this one way or the other, but it's a reasonable guess.
  5. You Wreck Me, was it a hit? And other questions.

    I'm hearing "wreck" rather than "rock," although in a few parts the enunciation sounds rather like "erect me, baby!" Which brings an entirely different meaning to that song.
  6. If you only had one live TPATH concert recording to share with someone?

    That is very cool. That is a very cool video.
  7. New Tom Petty book

    To the best of my memory, no, but when I checked his role in promoting Petty's music is mentioned in some detail in Petty: The Biography.

    Congratulations.

    "it's got a really great setlist," is what I was trying to say there - but I fell asleep in the middle of the sentence. Accursed medications.
  11. If you only had one live TPATH concert recording to share with someone?

    While probably not the one I'd recommend, there's one show that I have a particular fondness for. April 14, 1983 at the Kabuki Theater in San Francisco. Not only is it really good quality for an audience recording, it's got a

    I knew it sounded familiar! Soundboard recordings, too. I'm glad to hear that. None of the four versions I have are ideal. One suffers from distortion, two have not-ideal recording quality, and the last one is the most listenable but has some random people yelling in the middle of the song.
  13. New Tom Petty book

    If I recall correctly (meaning take this with a grain of salt), he worked for ABC Records in the 1970s as a promotion man.
  14. If you only had one live TPATH concert recording to share with someone?

    It's a neat track, slow-tempo bluesy sort of thing. I've only four versions of it, and all of them were audience recordings - earliest was July 22, in Mansfield, MA. I expect it was performed several other times, but unfortunately many tapers omit the Petty songs from the recordings, so they were likely lost to time.

    If I'm not mistaken, Drivin' Down to Georgia/Lost Without You are also on the Live Anthology. The November 1993 version, actually. Though I'm disappointed they left off the "if you're listening on the radio, none of us have any pants on."
