    FWIW, When Tom was still with us, he was very hands on (staging, merch, cover art etc). Every form of artistic expression relative to his music was intentional and deliberate. This is slipshod &  amateurish., undermining his integrity as a artist in every sense. I hope his family and the Heartbreakers get more rigorous in  maintaining the integrity of his good name.

    Nourdna reacted to Big Blue Sky in New TPATH Releases   
    ... TPATH created so much in 40 wonderful years ... we have all that music & good memories ... even if  people associated with it all seem to now be in a time of great confusion.  We have high expectations, and that's because they've always been so amazingly wonderful. 
    All the best to them all. But in all honesty, the ones I care about & respect most are the creative core of band - Mike & Benmont. And the team of people like Ryan. Hope this isn't crushing their souls too. Otherwise, I feel, well, what Shelter said. 
    I don't know bout you guys, but to me this whole ordeal have made me lost a lot of my interest in whatever they decide to do from here on out.. They have already kinda ruined all the fun, all the hope for something good coming (alright) despite our loss of Tom.

    All good @Hoodoo Man. Never intended to take up “mind share” on a valuable resource for Petty fans, “Mudcrutch Farm”, who want more great music that exists but regrettably hung up in legal wrangling. The intent was simply to draw the parallel between Steve Ferrone’s “For Real” line of sight as to the unreleased music ready for our ears vs the largely repackaged collections released to date. As a newbee, didn’t want to post redundant content, so took your feedback to heart and thought best to retract.

    Over decades as an avid Tom petty fan, it sickens me to se his face plastered over promotional materials like this with his lyrics. For whatever reason it just feels so contrary to who he was and how he felt about commercial endeavors. Especially posthumously to continue to push products is in poor taste.    Just listen to his song “For Real”. Do you think the person who wrote that would be looking down at these promo materials with favor? I think not.    What do you think?

    I think you're right. Between all the tacky brand merch stunts, archival photage video fests and what was revealed from the lawsuit documents, it seems a lot of the impulses, no matter how genuine and heartfelt in origin, proove to be badly misguided, ego oriented and backwards prioritized. If by accident so. Thank goodness someone stood up and helped shaping AAT into becoming about the music and the legacy of the man that created it, because other than that, so far it's a grim prospect we're looking at, waist deep in swag, repackaging and cheap tricks.
    But let's be hopeful, that once they all had their ya-ya' s out in terms of personal visions, projects and agendas, made a bit more name for themselves and used the stuff a few more times, maybe there will again be focus on what matters.. the music genius and music processes of Tom's.
    (Also, playing the devil's advocate here.. let's not forget there where hoodies, bags and keychains over the years, other stunts too.. back when the captain was still behind the wheels himself - sure, some kinda marketing must be ok, even at this point, so.......)
    But sure, I agree.. I wish they put a lot less prio on the swag bazaar from here on out.. Would be a tasteful move, all things considered.. To me it just doesn't rhyme to question the Heartbreakers' involvement (and their judgement?) or agenda, or too stall releases of quality dignified archival stuff and at the same time sign OK to all the crap with logos slapped on.  And they worry about honouring Tom....!?!

    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.
