    11/26/06 show?

    I think this show was added to that site in error. I've seen it as the only time "Depended on You" was played and I just don't buy it. One-off shows that were played outside of main tours were usually advertised to some extent, however minimal, and this one wasn't. Even the time Tom played "American Girl" solo at a birthday party made it to the news. Plus, lots of people have posted stuff on setlist fm that I've tried to keep track of and report as false. For instance, someone has recently added "For Real" to the end of every 'Echo' tour set list (insert eye roll emoji here). Tom was definitely very burnt out by the end of the 2006 tour; he acknowledged that he only did it because of the occasion of the 30th anniversary and in a Rolling Stone interview from that year said that he wouldn't tour again. So to add a show at the end of 2006 after a lengthy tour seems unlikely on Tom and the band's part. Thankfully, we know that the lack of desire to tour sentiment didn't wind up being true. But my guess is that the only performance of a rare song ("Depending on You") wouldn't be for a one-off show, and that they definitely wouldn't do a one-off show outside of CA or NY, or without significant financial incentive (though of course I could be wrong, since apparently She's the One material was performed at a benefit. But, that album didn't get a tour, so different logic may apply.) The performance of "Southern Accents" randomly, as well as "A Face in the Crowd" (which would be performed for the first time more than a decade in 2008), makes the set list even more suspect. More than this, the set list order didn't follow any kind of template of a previous set, and, let's face it, the band didn't really mix up sets (especially ends, i.e. "Refugee" and "Runnin' Down a Dream" as ending songs before / or part of encores) that much.

    11/26/06 show?

    I was reading an article today that casually referenced a one-and-only live TPATH performance of "Depending on You" from a show in December of 2006, noted here on setlist.fm: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Jackson, MS, 11/26/06 I had never heard of this show or any performance of that song, and I am wondering if anyone else here has. The whole show seems weird since the 30th anniversary tour appeared to end a month or so before this date. Was this a one-off show? (In Mississippi?!) Kind of odd. I wonder what the story about this was. Anybody know? Setlist.fm is fairly accurate, but this could possibly be incorrect also.

    Will There Be. Full Moon Fever Deluxe?

    I for one have no idea exactly what the song writing and recording sessions (spanning from late 87 to early 89 supposedly) did produce. Legend has it it was very magical and breezy, for sure. But somehow I'm having a hard time believing that they just pushed the red circular rec button one day, went on to play what we hear on the record and then pushed stop. I know Jeff is cool, but comon.. Of course I could be wrong and legend is every bit as groovy as we always was told, but there just might be some alt takes and some odd demo of songs, perhaps originally meant for something else, laying around. I totally agree chances are that there are a lot less recorded, let alone finished material than some other session of the same legend (some of which even have proof and witnesses too).. but still.. there might be something of interest to share light on the era. At least I hope there is. Really not prio though, agreed. Certainly not. But fun to talk about on this big 30th anniversary day. Amazing.. What a classic really.

    Sure, it's inspirational, I didn't mean it in any negative way. Perhaps my memory did not serve me correctly here since I thought I remembered reading about his hearing getting worse over the last several years before improving with the help of aids.

    Do we know if there even are demos though? A lot of those songs were seemingly written on the fly with Jeff Lynne and recorded immediately.

    Will There Be. Full Moon Fever Deluxe?

    I agree this could be down the list a ways, but that record is packed with great songs and I'd love to hear demos and outtakes of every one of them.

    I didn't know about the hearing problems, but I thought his speaking voice was wrecked from cocaine destroying his nose. Whenever I hear him speak, he sounds very "nasally" for want of a better word. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but the drug culture being what it was in the 60's - 80's, cocaine was everywhere. For all I know, it still is.

    Will There Be. Full Moon Fever Deluxe?

    FMF would be a touchy release. It's supposed to be a solo LP, so all the guys that played on the LP would have to agree to release it and get paid their amount of money. Plus all the guys were signed to different recording labels and those companies want a cut or the right to release the LP. So, it's most likely that a new version will never get released. This is basically an LP like "The Traveling Wilburys" and only George Harrison can pull it off to get artists and record companies to get something like this released!!

    Will There Be. Full Moon Fever Deluxe?

    Full Moon Fever is a great album, but some kind of deluxe reissue would be waaay down the list of priorities for me. There's not much left to mine there that hasn't already been released.

    Words on Take The Highway: Live!

    Right. What's really strange, though, I don't know if you noticed, but Learning To Fly is actually listed as content in the end credits*. They kinda pretend they included it, I suppose. Such a move can go a long way, as it turns out. For a few years there I guess I believed them. Then one day.. the feeling just died.. to quote a phrase.. and I realized they did indeed omit it. Too bad. This film is a strange and wonderful beast as it it, though. So glad that even without LTF they kept such a contemporary focus on this film, skipping at least some of the old standards that was of course part of the set at the time. ----- * Deja vu... Much like Even The Losers on the A Bunch of Videos tape...

    Will There Be. Full Moon Fever Deluxe?

    Nah.. funny because it's true. Meanwhile.. in the year of great anniversaries for many great Tom Petty albums (Damn The Torpedoes, Echo, Live Anthology) Full Moon Fever really stands out to many of today's fans and listeners, I suppose. And today is the day! And the fact is starting to get it's due in media too.. https://wmmr.com/2019/04/24/tom-pettys-full-moon-fever-introduced-new-generation/ https://turnupthevolume.blog/2019/04/24/tom-petty-released-first-solo-album-full-fever-moon-30-years-ago-today/ https://wmgk.com/2019/04/24/looking-back-full-moon-fever/ http://www.inthestudio.net/online-on-demand/tom-petty-full-moon-fever-30th-anniversary-2/ As for the thread topic.. Given the current state of affairs within the camp, I very much doubt there will be much in ways of commemorative releases right now (other than perhaps shirts, mugs, hats.. tasteful stuff like that .. keychains possibly..… ). But, was I to let my mind run free, I'd like to hope for something a little more action packed than the old Damn The Torpedoes Deluxe issue. That one was really a bummer in scratching the surface and offering a few odd ends only. At least one full disc of demos and/or alternative takes and b-sides + at least one full disc of live cuts from the era is a minimum for this kind of releases. When it comes to FMF there might not be tons of unique and unheard material to be heard - as in totally unheard songs - but there might be one or two, and certainly there will be some demos and alternative takes, the old Bangles session in proper context and the b-sides. I for one am curious as to if some of the stuff Tom brought to the Traveling Wilburys - say Last Night - wasn't in fact a stuff initially meant for his own projects and that demos is likely to exist.. Personally, though, I'd much prefer a Dylan Bootleg Series type release (see "Tell Tale Signs") that covers an era and skip all the already released stuff once and for all. In the FMF case, this would be part, preferably, of a "Wilburys Years" or likewise themed release that would deal with the years, say 1987-1991, to bookend the era of commercial peak success, the Lynne sound and general awesomely interesting sessions and clashes in the history of the band. 4 discs + book? Why not. Qued up and curated like that, such a box could be a great idea for a 2021 release too.. speaking of anniversaries. Bring it on. No shortage of great ideas, strictly speaking....

    After I read what you (downsouth26) wrote about Stephen Stills' hearing, I searched about it on-line. Found this professional testimonial / endorsement within Blooms Hearing Specialists' website. Only partial hearing since he was 9... and to become a musician known for his close harmony vocals. And from what this says, someone who's looked after his hearing all his life ... "long time hearing care". All that's really rather inspirational, don't you think? It is all the more impressive that Stills was able to accomplish all of this with a pretty significant hearing loss. He is absolutely a testament to the fact that hearing impairment should never let anyone feel like they can’t aspire to and do whatever it is they hope to. Stephen Stills was diagnosed with a mild unilateral (single ear) hearing loss as a child, but over the years it became progressively worse. Stills wears a pair of Oticon Dual hearing aids that have been able to keep his love for playing music alive. “Having been a professional musician for 50 years, the onset of my hearing loss has been a challenge, especially recently,” Stills says. “The refined ear I developed as a young man is impossible to replicate, and the search for suitable hearing aids has been frustrating. With hearing aids, I have found the best that modern science has to offer,” he adds. “The broader frequency response and fidelity are far and away better today and improving.” Stills continues to rock with audiences across the country with his music. He recently toured with The Rides – the blues-rock trio he plays in with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg. Stills also tours solo and with Crosby, Stills & Nash. Stephen Stills’ longtime hearing care consciousness has allowed him to continue performing into his later years, while other musicians with hearing loss have to bow out from the stage life sooner than anticipated rather than risk further damage.

    Oh well, counting our blessings? This Fleetwood Mac involvement has Mike Campbell touring widely & they are booked to play in a venue in my town. Oh yes, in my town. I doubt The Dirty Knobs will ever play here, though it'd be great if they ever do. We all know people who fly hours for a chance to see their favourite musicians play, so for Mike Campbell to be coming here is still my best news of the year... pretty much unbelievable. Also, I imagine our local vintage guitar shops & vinyl shops will be sending their nicest samples to his hotel in the hope he might be keen to increase his collection.

    At least not in our lifetime. Such an interesting and wonderful period in popular music history. What I would give to be a fly on the wall and witness the creation of a masterpiece such as Pet Sounds or Judy Blue Eyes. In rewatching the trailer, it sounds like Stephen Stills has improved his speech. It's hard for me to be sure about it, but he sounds better. I know he's struggled since losing a lot of his hearing.

    Yeah, as far as I'm concerned, this Fleetwood Mac tour, and MC's involvement with the band, can't end soon enough.

    I see FM rescheduled the Boston show for 10/28 so it looks like he is tied up for most of this year with them. Cant wait for a chance to see Mike in a smaller venue again and not pay an arm and a leg for a ticket. I'm hopeful the DK tour will mimic the Mudcrutch show and come to the House of Blues Boston or similar venue...

    I'm a huge John Hiatt Fan and recently became a fan of his daughter Lilly Hiatt. Seems she often does a couple of Wildflowers tracks live. Not sure how much I like this cover of Time to move on, but thought it was worth sharing... she also does Walls - audio only.

    Update: MC recorded a message for Tom Petty Radio this morning. He said he's working with a vocal coach and George Drakoulias to finish up the Knobs album. Sounds like it will be released this fall sometime. He reiterated that next year is fully reserved for a Dirty Knobs tour!
