    Thoughts on Hypnotic Eye...TPATH's best record!

    In retrospect, I'm glad the band put out such a strong album as their last one. I gotta disagree on best, because I don't think any of the albums tops Damn the Torpedoes, but Hypnotic Eye is one of the greats.

    Gainsville (Outtake 1998) coming up next

    This song has such a killer hook and a cool vibe. It is a little rough around the edges but I think it could have made it on the album with a few edits. Maybe if there were more “free girl now” and “swingin” kind of songs on Echo then it would have fit on the album but I can see why they left it off.

    What do you think of Hypnotic Eye four years later?

    The last tour I saw was the Hypnotic Eye tour in 2014 so this album is a little more special to me because of that. I stil listen to it from time to time. I like the more rocking songs. American Dream Plan B, U Get Me High, Forgotten Man, and Fault Lines are all great. They did a great job of making the songs sound fresh.
  4. I've heard something about a special announcement coming up next week... Monday or Tuesday at 6 PM eastern I think, but haven't caught the whole ad yet. Any ideas what this might be?

    Words on Damn the Torpedoes

    Man I do not understand even half that shit Ben is talking about. I’m pretty sure making an ok or even good rock and roll song isn’t that hard but making a great one is just about impossible.

    TomPetty.com on the Wayback Machine (image-heavy!)

    I loved the Vox lounge design. The forums there were pretty active then as I recall. I remember checking for updates on the upcoming "Golden Circle" album and Dana would post there every now and then.

    Would Nowhere have fit on Hard Promises or Long After Dark?

    Damn the Torpedoes only had 9 songs on it. They should have put it there. To my ear, it sounds like a DTT track and I just can't imagine it on another album.
  8. Close your eyes and listen to that chorus on Running Down a Dream. You can almost swear you hear Tom in there.

    Coroner's Report/Petty Family Update

    I'm glad the family made a statement, though they certainly didn't have to. At least he went unknowingly and peacefully. I'm just some random guy from Texas but I wish much love, happiness, and healing on his family and friends.
  10. Dog on the Run in 1978 -- a much different song than "Dogs on the Run" from Southern Accents.

    Still listening to only Tom Petty music daily

    I stopped listening for a little while. But death is a part of life. The music is still good so I'm still listening.
  12. Come on Down to My House! I've never heard a recording of that one live.

    Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    Ah yes that is it Marion! Hidden right in plain sight. I could never afford Playback before I started just streaming all my music. Thanks!

    Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    Oh I haven't heard I Don't Belong in forever. That was an Echo outtake, right? There was some other lost track, the title of which I can't remember. It is about a guy and a girl who meet, the lyrics are "he thought she was pretty good looking", a couple more verses then "she thought he was pretty good looking". It was a pretty rough recording from what I remember, but sadly I lost that file a long time ago. Anyone remember this?
