    Anyone else hearing some similarities to Turning Point?
    Love the song. His songwriting was sooo strong during this period.

    Very good sounding version, nice to hear Tom's voice again, and so clearly.  I hope they have more demos in this quality.  It reminds me of the George Harrison boot "Beware of ABKCO" (All Things Must Pass demos) in terms of sound quality and feel.   
    This could be released as a single, considering the exceptional sound quality, the popularity of the album version, and the fact that sadly there won't be any new songs created by TP.

    I meant Zanes and the "rolling orgy" bus incident

    I spent a fair amount of time yesterday searching for this mystery book as well as Googling in vain for this connection between him and the Heartbreakers 😉

    Lol, possibly he meant "Warren Zanes".  Just a wild guess though.

    According to Warren Haynes's book, there are reasons why Stan wouldn't have been welcome in the Blue Stingrays project. That said, I'm thrilled to hear Stan on drums again!

    The additions of the at-home audience were lame.  But they were infrequent and not too intrusive.  The show itself was pro-shot and very well recorded.  Without the lame audience shots this would have been worthy of an official release.  At least it's something.

    This drove me nuts. Tom was emoting his heart out on Woman in Love, while the left half of the split screen featured a bunch of goofball kids grinning and jumping around with their dad. I appreciate Fans.com’s attempt to simulate a live experience, but last night won’t convince me to watch another of their livestreams.
    It was a good show; I loved hearing the HE tracks.

    Sorry about that. I'm on a MacBook Air that has a folder that's jammed with mp3s of TPHBS rare live tracks of various quality. During quarantine, I roll out of bed and go to work on this computer with some pretty good headphones. I'm finding tons of stuff I've downloaded but have not listened to. Its pretty neat

    Glad you enjoyed reading about it. Probably that show and my first one from the ITGWO tour were the best TPATH shows I saw for the emotional connections to the night in addition to the songs played and the atmosphere.
    That's great when a concert feels that way!
    Ha ha ha, great! 
    I bet you were happy you drove out that night! That is a pretty loaded set for the band. Interesting about Alright For Now, I could've sworn I heard them play it once in person as well, and if I did, most likely it was this Columbus/Polaris Ohio show yet I didn't write it down the next day, so I'm not quite sure. But I'm glad you got to hear it; what a treat, such a gentle song and a nice farewell from stage to audience.
    Thanks for your tales peterdimples.
    cheers

    peterdimples reacted to TheSameOldDrew in Damage you've done... Favorite era or version?   
    The country version is hilarious, especially when you know the "real" song.  I don't think anyone would call the country version the definitive take.  But it's worth hearing; I'm glad they put it on the Playback album.    
    I like both the original studio version and the American Treasure alternate studio take.  Overall I prefer the original but I like the AT version quite a lot.  
    As far as live versions, yes the 1989 Chapel Hill NC version is awesome.  That entire recorded-for-radio live album should have been an official release.  It's probably my favorite TPATH bootleg.  I was surprised that not one song from that concert was chosen for the Live Anthology album.  
    I guess if I had to vote, I'd take the 1989 live version over them all, live or studio.  But I like having many versions to listen to.  
    BTW, I love the song.  I'd put it in the upper 1/3rd of their album output.  Which is very high praise, considering how many great songs they have, often with every song or nearly every song worthy of repeated play.

    Thanks for the memories, Mary Jane's Last Dance! I remember this tour and similar experiences fondly and vividly. I went to a show at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA with the Jayhawks opening. It was a Sunday night in April, and the morning of the concert, another show was announced for the same venue in June.
    Despite some rainfall, that 1995 concert in Mountain View was a thrilling show. It felt like it went on forever, in a good way. "Love is a Long Road" kicked things off, followed by "You Don't Know How It Feels" ... "I woke up in between...a mattress and a limousine," Tom sang, as a contact high from clouds of pot smoke intoxicated  my neighbors on the Shoreline's lawn seats. "Time To Move On," "Wildflowers," "Learning To Fly," "The Waiting," and a gorgeous cover of the Byrds' "It Won't Be Wrong" were all sprinkled in to the acoustic set
    A friend of mine drove from Los Angeles to the Bay Area to go to the show with me.  A few months later, I went to LA to meet the same friend to go to the Heartbreakers' first concert at the Hollywood Bowl on a Friday night, with Taj Mahal opening. Again, it was magical. I got back to the Bay Area late Monday night. Went back to work on Tuesday morning, and got so excited telling my coworkers about the show at the Bowl, I decided to drive back to the Shoreline that night to do it all over again. I was about 25, driving spontaneously to a Heartbreakers concert felt like I was absolutely headed in the right direction in life that night.
    That second Shoreline show provided all kinds of sweet treats. During the acoustic set, Tom replaced "Time To Move On" with the first public performance of "California". The extended encore opened with "Breakdown/Hit the Road, Jack" before TP ripped through "Around and Around" and "Bright Lights, Big City", "Honey Bee", "American Girl', and, finally, "Alright For Now"—the only time I heard that beautiful lullabye in more than 40 Heartbreakers concerts between 1991-2014.

    Interesting perspective. Sometimes I forget that the original version of Learning To Fly only existed on the ITGWO tour and the homecoming show of '93. I think it's the only song in their catalog that went through this change and never changed back. The first few times I heard this song in this way I enjoyed it, not just for the novelty but the different feel and presentation, perhaps culminating in what I consider the "choir" version of '06. After that though, I think the song should've returned to its more rocking version. 
    As to your guess as to why...I don't know. It could be that Tom felt the song's lyrics, theme and overall vibe felt more airy with acoustics and the audience sing-along and perhaps the latter was the most pressing reason, a way to get the crowd invovled on another level and in a way they loved, a real community moment for band and audience.

    I think "Turn This Car Around" was the only song from the future "Highway Companion" album that got played on that 2005 tour.  At least I don't remember any others.  There were a bunch of audience tapes from that tour, but no soundboards or FM broadcasts.

    I'm so sorry to hear of John Prine's passing. He was one of my very favorites, right up there with TP. I saw John many times in concert, have all his records on vinyl, etc. Such  unique voice, such an amazing writer, such a wonderful, kind man. One of a kind.
    Howie Epstein was a huge part of Prine's success in the early 1990s, when JP was having a hard time getting heard by anyone beyond his group of faithful fans. Howie produced The Missing Years, a stunning record that won a Grammy and put Prine back on the musical map. The Heartbreakers are all over the record and its a masterpiece. Howie also produced the follow-up Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings, which is an underrated gem, and yielded what might be Prine's best-ever track, "Lake Marie". It's Bob Dylan's favorite at least.
    So, thanks Howie, for helping John Prine create some of his most memorable music.

    peterdimples got a reaction from Hoodoo Man in Which TP songs best describe life in COVID19-times?   
    Willeford's final four books are about a Miami police detective named Hoke Mosely and they are all terrific: Miami Blues, New Hope For The Dead, Sideswipe, The Way We Die Now.
    I think his greatest fiction book is The Burnt Orange Heresy, which was recently filmed with Mick Jagger in a key role. The movie is good but the book is fantastic. Funny and very dark.
    He wrote an autobiography about having to live on the road at age 12 during the Great Depression and it may be my favorite-ever book: I Was Looking For A Street.
