    11/26/06 show?

    Wasn't "Depending on You" played at the Fillmore in 1997? Maybe I'm thinking of "The Apartment Song"

    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    I always liked to predict what songs on each new album would go in the live show. When Hypnotic Eye came out, I was sure that "All You Can Carry" would be in there, right around the place that "Out in the Cold" was on the Great Wide Open tour. I was wrong. Its also interesting to see songs like "All or Nothing" or "Fault Lines" get pulled out one or two times early in the tour and then shelved.
  3. This story was linked on the ExpectingRain website, dedicated to all things Bob Dylan or Dylan-related. With Doris Day's passing, and Tom's being gone, it makes for an interesting read, although I wonder if the writer would have been so flip about "dumb blondes" if his subjects were dead at the time of the article. https://observer.com/1999/05/tom-petty-doris-day-and-the-art-of-being-dumb/

    Words on Take The Highway: Live!

    I was at the Nov. 24, 1991 show in Oakland that was filmed for Take the Highway. A couple things I remember: Tom sang "Psychotic Reaction" that night, because Stan had laryngitis, so the version on the film is definitely from Reno the night before. They played "Learning to Fly" as an electric version somewhere in the middle of the show, no idea why itys cut out, but there might have had lousy camera coverage or something. I was also at the last two shows of the 1999 Fillmore run which were filmed for High Grass Dogs. The production company screwed up and did not film more than half the show, I remember there was a lawsuit over it. That's my least favorite live show they put out because it should have been so much longer. Also, the Fillmore is hard to film, so they just don't have camera coverage the way they do in Pack Up the Plantation, Take the Highway, Last DJ, or Gainesville 2006.

    Will There Be. Full Moon Fever Deluxe?

    I always thought Full Moon Fever would be a good album for the band to record live in the studio, the way they did on Hypnotic Eye and Mojo, as a re-release. I love the songs on Full Moon Fever so much—probably have listened to that record more than any other by ay artist in my life—but the production does feel a little slick and dated at times. I always thought it would be fun to have a live version, or if they wanted to rearrange "I Won't Back Down" or anything, they could Lucinda Williams did this with her Sweet Old World album recently, and I love the new release.
  6. I was just reading about a releasee of the great 1950s movie A Face in the Crowd on blu-ray and it made me wonder if TP had seen that film when he wrote the song. I know he loves classic movies, as he has done commercial reads for TCM and once told an interviewer that if he checked into a hotel on the road and they didn't have TCM on the TV, he checked out immediately. I also thought of "It's Good To Be King", which seems borrowed from a recurring punchline in Mel Brooks' History of the World Part 1. Anyway, how many TP song titles double as film titles, or lines of dialogue from classic films? Here are a few I found on IMDB: Airport A Face in the Crowd Breakdown Red River The Wild One, Forever Won't Back Down The Best of Everything Wildflowers Billy The Kid versus Dracula Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid Between Two Worlds Candy Dark of the Sun Good Enough The Hurt Locker Joe Let Yourself Go The City of Lost Children The Man Who Loves/d Women Mystery Man Nightwatchman Nowhere Rebels Surrender The Waiting You Tell Me

    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    Something that stands out about Southern Accents is that the band played 8 out of 9 of its songs, night after night, on tour. I don't think any other album came close to receiving such a showcase in the live set.

    Fillmore-Feb 2, 1997

    I was living in the Grand Canyon National Park when these Fillmore shows took place. A friend recorded the last night on two 90 minute cassettes for me when it was broadcast on the radio and mailed me the tapes. I remember taking a long hike through the Canyon and listening to the whole thing. Then going back to side a of tape 1 and listening to it again!
