is it just me? or does this one sound like it could have been the Beatles....
Soundtrack of life...
This is one of the first songs I could play completely, rhythm and lead licks. I still play it most every time I noodle around.
I know it's not really a "deep cut", but the thread is cool and I wanted to contribute.
I always liked the lullaby sort of songs he often put at (or near) the ends of his albums. Alright for Now, The Best of Everything, You Can Still Change Your Mind, It'll All Work Out, The Golden Rose, Wake Up Time. He was a rocker, but he was also really sentimental and it was nice to hear that side of him every now and then...
The best of them might have been Wildflowers, which led the album and was the title song. But it was basically a lullaby to his little girls when their family was falling apart because of the breakup of his first marriage...
This one probably doesn't qualify as a true "deep cut" but I had never heard of it until my brother played it for me.
He and I have played it together several times since then.
my first encounter with tom petty and the heartbreakers was them backing dylan in 86. i don't think he ever had a better live sound than this:
and lest we forget:
Check out Tom thumping away on that Rick 4001. Does that sound like him singing backup too?
What i most admire about Tom and the band is they got better with age, their quality their stage presence and musicianship. I will deeply mis him, and treasure the chance i was able to see him live at the van andle area a while back.
Classic sarcastic Petty...and that cuts deep enough.
Tom Petty - It's Good To Be King
I don’t know, man, I saw them on Damn the Torpedos in 79, a few times in the 80s (including with Dylan), and a couple in the 90s, and I thought the 79 show was the best by far. He was always really a pro, but that first show had a sense of urgency and intensity I never saw again.
Roger McGuinn & Tom Petty
Thank you for making this thread. Seems like his best stuff has gone unnoticed over the years. Never understood the whole "single" idea. Play the damn album! I might actually listen to radio of they did that. Great songs here guys. Some of my favs:
"Dogs on the Run", "Casa Dega"(live version is the ****), "Rhino Skin", just to name a few. So much good music. Made with care and passion. Still soggy eyed today guys.
I always loved the rhythm on this song.
