OK people.  A band named Drake or something like that just broke a Beatles record for most songs on the charts at one time.  60 new songs from Tom Petty, surely we can get 10 on the charts and beat the record again.  Tom's memory deserves it.

Damn, it's time to go home.  I read that as "Tom Petty's posthumous sex bot..."

I read it as "Tom Petty's posthumous bot sex..." and figured it's time to clean my glasses.

Tom Petty's Posthumous Sex Bot is the name of my goth electronica Tom Petty cover band.

But seriously, I might have to pony up for this one. I have the old box set "Playback" and it was awesome. Judging by that one, Tom leaves some of the grungiest jam stuff and strange songs on the cutting room floor, so there might be some jewels in here that he wrote and recorded for fun and discarded for more serious material.

Thank you, Subby! I know what I'm getting for my son for an early Christmas gift.
(and one for myself)

Thank you, Gopher 321.
I used to be in a band and my friends want to go to Kareoke--which I hate.
I'll sing the "Wilbury Twist" and they'll leave me alone for a year or two.

Hell yeah.  Like most great songs like this, I feel like I'm in the middle of the story.

WANT.

The box set, not the sex bot.

I saw that documentary about him that came out a couple of years ago and that made me appreciate him as a hard worker a lot more than before; but honestly, I always found his music pretty derivative and his Byrds/Dylan schitck pretty trite.

Just the other day, I heard a Tom Petty song playing on the neighbor's radio at his 4th of July party. I've always been a fan and enjoyed his music. As I was listening and humming along, I suddenly realized that Tom had passed not to long ago. I stopped humming went back into my house and thought about how sad it was that we lost him.

He was a good entertainer, spoke well during many documentaries he was in, and was a musical influence to me during my musical awakening when I was first discovering music as a teen. My favorite supergroup is the Traveling Wilburys and I'm glad any die-hard Tom Petty fan can get this new box set.

So greedy survivors can't wait to rake in the cash selling stuff the artist didn't think was good enough to put out there?

Tom and I went to the same high school, years apart. Here he is driving around our home town the year I was born.

How long would you prefer they wait?

And why should they wait at all?

RIP Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr. / Muddy Wilbury

Kicking myself for not having seen him on tour last year... I said to myself "oh, he'll tour again"

:(

Sounds good, but looking at the track listing it seems a little heavy on already released material.
Pull those and it's a 3 disc set.

I prefer a better consolidation of unreleased originals and alternate cuts to a bunch of live performances and songs that are already on albums.  But then it would be a double cd.  Sure, that product would honor TP more, but guess that wouldn't satisfy the label's demands for twice the profit.

I used to date a girl that swore that a woman came into her store every so often that looked just like Tom Petty.

I haven't wanted a posthumous box so much since those cheerleaders died in that bus crash.
