On a different site Ryan Ulyate acknowledged that Walls didn’t strictly meet the criteria but fit  so well into the live track list that they felt compelled to include it. 

Glad to see it being included.  It's always welcome.  Walls is such a great song.

I wonder which live version they used, the one from the 90's with a cello, or pull one from the 40th anniversary tour.

I'm happy with it. Think it's one of his best songs.

Walls (No.3) is one of my favorite Petty songs. Very good decision by Ryan Ulyate to record the track. I am totally happy with it. Thanks Ryan.

Some of the leftover songs from Wildflowers
that landed on She`s the One are also on "All The Rest" like California, Hope You Never, Climb That Hill, that's why "Walls" also finds its place on Wildflowers & All The Rest.

I don't remember any cello on stage ever.  They did that live with a cellist?

Yeah, I don't know if it was a thing they did all tour, or only one night, but it was filmed.  I remember watching it not too long ago, but can't remember the date or city.  Give me a minute and I'll try and find it for you.

Edit: Nevermind, Mike beat me to it!  Thanks for finding it, Mike!  That's the one I was thinking of.

So no digital downloads are included with any of the tiers?

If you click on "read more" on any of the vinyl pages, you'll find this further down in the description:

"Each order will include four digital downloads prior to the release date as well as the full versions of Wildflowers, All the Rest, Live Wildflowers, and Home Recordings on October 16th."

It then tells you the dates you'll get different downloads:

Time of Order: Wildflowers "Home Recording" & “There Goes Angela”


Friday, September 11th: “Leave Virginia Alone”

Friday, October 2nd: “Confusion Wheel”

Friday, October 16th: “Wildflowers - Full Remastered Album”, “All The Rest - Full Album”, “Live Wildflowers”, "Home Recordings"

I had read that the entire 54 tracks would be given as a digital download with the LP or CD packages but even the deluxe package would not be getting a DL of the last album of "finding Wildflowers"  Also the 4 CD track list shows up on Apple Music but it mainly greyed out as it wont be available until 10/16

1) I'm glad this is finally coming out for those who've waited so long and love WF, etc. 

2) The 9 gazillion discs is wildly overpriced and ridiculous.

3) Odd to see Walls and Drivin' Down To Georgia on the live disc. Too bad they didn't just release a full WF show from that tour, the band was firing on pretty much all cylinders, you had a good mix of WF and hits, the surf instrumental, lots of jamming, some nice acoustic moments and an overall fun energy. Oh well. Good thing livepetty.com exists!

4) You can keep Rubin and Fricke...I'd rather read 'Farmers takes on the box set songs. Oh, okay, Fricke and Rubin are all right too I guess.

5) Probably because I first heard it live that's how I think about DDTG. Don't need a studiio version.

6) Confusion Wheel? Intriguing title.

7) I thought there'd be more unfamiliar material but then I've heard tell the possibility that the repeat title tracks listed form STO will be significantly different.

8) WF was never my favorite, not even in my top five so I was always more excited for people to get it since so many love the album and it had been promised for so long. I am interested in the new/unreleased stuff. Because of this, I doubt I'll ever view STO as part of WF even though it's songs taken from that session, to me there's WF and then STO, I really appreciate the latter record on its own.

9) :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:   :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:   :ph34r:

He responded “I LOVE that album!” I replied citing Between Two Worlds as a song almost universally ignored. He replied they rehearsed it once for the last tour and never played it again. But said “it was incredible”. Can you imagine? Such a fantastic song. And unlike anything else they ever recorded I reckon. A real lost gem.

This is what Ryan said initially, but just a few minutes ago he issued a correction:

 I'm happy to report that the 5 disc CD and the 9 disc vinyl bought through the Tom Petty website WILL have download codes for "Finding Wildflowers" as well. Whatever configuration you buy will have downloads for the songs in that configuration. The downloads will be "standard" 320K mp3, from the 24 bit 44.1K "loud" digital master, 2464* Hi-Res FLAC from the high dynamic range 2496 digital files, and 2496 Hi-Res wav, from the same high dynamic range 2496 digital files.

*he corrected this in his next post: 2496

I doubt there's a great deal of extra material (or great demand), but I'd sure be excited about a fancy ITGWO 30th anniversary release next year...

This is good news!  I always love the Hi-Res files to listen to at home.  They did wonderful work on all of the Hi-Res reissues of the original albums, the Live Anthology, and An American Treasure, so I am very much looking forward to finally having Wildflowers in the same quality format.

Fantastic song.  My jaw would have hit the floor if they pulled that song out of their back pocket.

Happy to hear Benmont giving that album some love.  It deserves to be remembered/treated better.

Ryan Ulyate just wrote that over at the Steve Hoffman Forum:

Believe me, there was a LOT of material to choose from regarding the alternate takes ("Finding Wildflowers") disc. This is designed to be a great album, that has an arc to it and tells a story (as TP would have insisted). It is by no means the "bottom of the barrel" . If you want to hear some of the more lighthearted outtakes from the Wildflowers sessions, listen to my show tonight on TP Radio, 7PM Pacific 10PM Eastern, (GMT-7).

... All new material. Jams, made-up songs, covers, funny bits recorded "between the takes"

 

Would love to hear that, but don't have TP Radio. Anyone!?

I think in time it'll be more appreciated.

I hope so.  It's a great album.

I like your list of favorites.  Hypnotic Eye is a masterpiece.

Yeah, I would love to be able to hear this.  Hopefully someone can capture this for those of us who can't afford SiriusXM.

- The programme begins with Tom Petty covering a song which is called "Farmer John". A little bit country-fried, a little bit ramshackle and some tasty keyboards from the hand of Mr. Benmont Tench the third. It's interesting to hear TP cut loose here with a thoroughly loose vocal. He's having a blast with the "woahs" as well. "Farmer John" is a song written by Don & Dewey and initially released to market in 1959.

- Ryan Ulyate welcomes us to the show and states that he is going to play us some music on his new show "Behind The Glass". Ryan gives his history working with TP from working with him on his twenty-first century albums and the "Buried Treasure" show. He states that he is going to play us music that Tom Petty/Heartbreakers played between-the-takes during the "Wildflowers" sessions. He notes that sometimes the band would play to lighten the tension or get their mind off of the song they were working on. Improvisation being the rule. TP is on the bass guitar on "Farmer John" as was common during these sessions as the "Wildflowers" project didn't necessarily revolve around a permanent, steady bass player and would oftentimes see TP and Mike Campbell switch off on the bass guitar.

- Ryan Ulyate cues up another improvisation provisionally entitled "Easily Bored" which dates from the 1993-07-23, "Greatest Hits" sessions featuring Stan Lynch on drums. This is followed by a loose Donovan cover entitled "Yellow Is The Color" initially issued to market by the Hurdy Gurdy Man in 1965. Both are mid-tempo rockers which emphasize a bit of the rootsy rock 'n' roll that Tom Petty/Heartbreakers could occasionally slip into.

- Next up is a bit of a riff on "Girl On LSD" as TP crafts a new improvisation around the familiar refrain pulling in lines from Chuck Berry's "Schooldays" in the process. This one is a lot of fun, with some Jerry Lee Lewis style piano phrases from Benmont Tench and wonderful guitar work from Mike Campbell. This was recorded on 1992-11-23 when Tom Petty and Rick Rubin were auditioning drummers for the "Wildflowers" project and features Phil Jones on the drums and Bob Glaub on bass. As this breaks down, we hear Benmont play a little spiritual boogie on the keys before Ryan Ulyate welcomes us back to the show. Ryan later explains that this jam may have been the genesis of "Girl On LSD"

- Benmont Tench starts jamming on a song entitled "I Can't See My Piano". The song is slow tempo with a bluesy groove to it. A reminder that if the Heartbreakers are ever left to their own devices, they will usually return to the blues. TP offers a positive appraisal of Tench's work as the song winds to a close. TP and Tench then have a bit of a back and forth improvisation entitled "Is That Your Wife" based around the Bo Diddley song "Bring It To Jerome". The available tape cuts off just as TP starts to roll.

- The next track is actually a cover of Bo Diddley's "Bring It To Jerome" first issued to market in 1955. As this winds to a close we hear some tasty guitar work and TP begins vocally improvising over the guitar and keyboard work on a improvisation entitled "Something Ain't Right" tracked on 07-01-1992 with Stanley on drums prior to an early take of "Honey Bee". The guitar work sounds very heavily influenced by Tom Petty's old Traveling Wilburys mate, George Harrison late of The Beatles. " San Bernardino is shining like a diamond" says TP as he crafts a winding tale about driving all night, trying to shake off a feeling that "something ain't right". If nothing else these jams demonstrate how tight The Heartbreakers truly were as a band as they fall in effortlessly together behind their lead singer.

- Ryan Ulyate then cues up a medley of shorter undeveloped jams. The first features some very fuzzy guitar similar to the guitar work heard decades later on "Hypnotic Eye". Next up is a cover of Ritchie Valens "Come On Let's Go Little Darling" issued posthumously to market in March 1959. Nice stuff although it doesn't last very long. Benmont's piano invites us into the next jam "Keep On Eye On You" featuring both Stanley and Howie Epstein from the "Greatest Hits" sessions...I wonder why Benmont has never played this one at Largo? TP reverts into Elvis Presley parody with some at times unintelligible scatting. Nice ending too!

- A guitar/bass/keys improvisation ramps up of the folk song "Baby Let Me Follow You Down" best known by it's interpretation by Bob Dylan. As this winds down we hear TP singing some very Hank Williams influence country pickin' "Them Ju Ju Beads". Next up it a complete cover of Rick Nelson's "Waitin' In School" featuring George Drakoulias on drums which Tom Petty/Heartbreakers would cover several years later during their run of shows at The Fillmore West in 1997. TP unlike many of his contemporaries when it comes to his nineteen fifties rock 'n' roots actually remembers all the words!

- Ryan Ulyate cues up a song entitled "Pleasure Train" featuring Steve Ferrone on drums on 04-13-1994, a slow, snaking bluesy jam very similar to the song "County Farm" that some Tom Petty/Heartbreakers fans will be familiar with from their late nineties live performances.

- Another improvisation follows as TP starts pulling in references from classic blues songs such as dwelling down in the county jail. Some nice piano work on this one entitled "Cutting A Watermelon" and tracked on 1993-07-23, somewhat reminiscent at times of Tom Petty/Heartbreakers cover of Elvis Presley's "Baby Let's Play House". TP breaks down into a fit of laughter at the end.

- TP begins improvising a little tale entitled "Two Hundred Dollars An Hour" from the sessions for "Christmas (All Over Again)" on 07-23-1992 about how the milk has gone sour at two hundred dollars an hour and Campbell and Tench both join in as TP references Mary Kay cosmetics, elastic pants and Pink Cadillacs. The lyrics read like one of those standardized test questions where they ask you: one of these things is dissimilar to the other. This time the jam actually does evolve into Presley's "Baby Let's Play House". Fun and as always Tom Petty's Elvis Presley imitations are on point!

- Ryan Ulyate thanks everyone from Tom Petty's Estate to Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Alan "Bugs" Weidel and Stan Lynch. Ryan states that he's been contemplating assembling a programme like this for a while and it has been wonderful bringing it to fruition. The final song of the programme is cued up, a jam from the "Greatest Hits" sessions entitled "Change Your Ways", another heavily blues influenced Heartbreakers romp somewhat reminscent of Slim Harpo's "I'm A King Bee".
================
All told a fun-filled show highlighting a side of Tom Petty/Heartbreakers that most fans have never heard. It's refreshing to hear an outfit as professional as Tom Petty/Heartbreakers who were capable of producing some of the highest standard of rock 'n' roll ever pressed to wax are just as capable of letting their hair down and cutting loose if the occasion calls for it. The only thing that was missing from the programme was a song about a three-legged-dog! Cheers Ryan! That was fab.

PS: Apologies in advance for any omissions or mis-identifications. I was tracking the show live and it was moving fast as fast could be. As others have already stated up the chain, the programme will be available on demand for SiriusXM subscribers and encore presentations will be broadcast throughout the week [see post #2348 for the schedule].

This simultaneously excites me and bums me out.  That is quite a list and description of material that was played and talked about, and somehow left off of the official boxset.

Here's hoping someone has it! 🤞
