SLQ: Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers Damn The Torpedoes (Deluxe Edition)By Doug Collette January 14, 2011 Rate 3 5 http://www.glidemagazine.com/articles/56779/tom-petty-and-the-heartbreakers.html Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Damn the Torpedoes was the bands breakthrough album, launching an ascent to rock icon status via a painstaking (and often painful) creative process. The combination of the bands third album in an expanded package with a simultaneously released DVD wouldve made for a truly deluxe edition. The audio remastering illustrates how Damn the Torpedoes marked a greater progression in production for TP & co than in songwriting or in performing. In fact, the album contained its share of lightweight tunes such as Century City and Dont Do Me Like That made memorable only by the highly-polished sound of the original quintets nimble musicianship. Yet its in this re-released context too, the moments where the sound and style become tougher, as on Refugee, represent high points in the bands discography to this day. On the Classic Album DVD from Eagle Vision, the content originally broadcast on VH1 is expanded to include more insightful footage recorded for that project, all of which is well complemented through David Frickes customarily insightful and passionate liner notes on the CD booklet. As Petty, guitarist Mike Campbell and keyboardist Benmont Tench, plus producer Jimmy Iovine and engineer Shelly Yakus, good-humoredly recount the process through which they fashioned the final product of their labor, it seems almost surprising they were able to collaborate so successfully. Concentrating on the technical and musical aspects of the work doesnt exclude discussion of the business aspects surrounding Damn the Torpedoes either, in the form of veiled but nonetheless emotionally pointed observations on the relationship with the MCA label with whom they engaged in more than one standoff during this interval. Because of the extensive archiving Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have already done, in the form of the box set Playback, last years multi-discs in The Live Anthology, not to mention the Peter Bogdanovich documentary Running Down A Dream, its not altogether surprising this double CD set (shorn of the plastic slipcase that adorned titles in the series previously) falls short of fulfilling its expansive concept. Tracks on the half-hour long second disc exhibit the style though not the substance of the official album (except for the demo of Refugee), alongside selected live cuts that might well have been included on on audio disc with the original album, then paired with the DVD (or Blu-Ray). Such packaging would be a more accurate reflection of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers as the superior rock and roll band they have been for over three decades now.

Voldar: . Tom Petty - Live Tracks Tom Petty has certainly been generous to fans who bought online tickets to the summer-fall 2010 Mojo tour. In addition to offering a free download of the blues-oriented Mojo album, last month Petty also released eight free live MP3 tracks recorded at various stops on the tour. Taken together, the songs essentially constitute something between a long EP and short full-length album documenting a tour that found Petty and his band the Heartbreakers appearing to be as loose and having as much fun as any time in recent years. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are not typically noted for extensive jamming or tinkering with their songbook when they play live. True to form, three of the eight songs in this collection are played pretty close to their original studio versions: Kings Highway, I Wont Back Down, and Runnin Down a Dream. Fortunately, all three are superbly crafted songs that dont need a lot of tinkering to sound fresh live, especially when played with the energy that pulses throughout these songs. Drummer Steve Ferrone (a new Heartbreaker having only been with the band close to 20 years) keeps a steady backbeat throughout, and in particular I Wont Back Down benefits from the short, driven version here that supports the pointed message of the lyrics. Stoner anthem You Dont Know How It Feels is livened up by crisp harmonica from multi-instrumentalist Scott Thurston and some funky boogie-woogie from keyboardist Benmont Tench. Toward the end of the song, the band veers into some trippy improv including interplay between Tench and lead guitarist Mike Campbell that is surprisingly reminiscent of the Dead. This leads to a rollicking, bluesy conclusion more typical of a Petty show. Drivin Down to Georgia, a number that can only be found in official version on the 2009 Live Anthology box set, is probably the highlight of the set. With wry lines like Hear that engine knockin, weve both seen better days, this tale of a mindless cross-country drive is vintage Petty: characters in his songs are usually not getting the best of life, but they keep dreaming, scheming and partying in the face of adversity. The song is fast-paced and upbeat, featuring a lively Campbell solo followed by a jazzy Tench piano interlude which backs Petty delivering a spoken word monologue about peaches and red clay in Georgia, with a warning the peaches wont last long, wintertime will get em. The blistering jam following this segment underscores Pettys general message that when life gives you lemons, give it the finger and turn up the radio. Also provided is a slinky rendition of all-time Petty classic Breakdown, complete with an audience singalong of the chorus and a call and response between Petty and the crowd of Wooah, yeah yeah yeah. Although this version is longer than the studio version, it ends abruptly (a minor complaint I also had about the Breakdown I saw at the Verizon Center in Massachusetts in August.) Mojo is one of the strongest studio albums Petty has put out solo or with the Heartbreakers in years (and lets be honest, the difference between his solo and Heartbreakers work is mostly in whose name goes on the album cover), and the energy of having solid new material clearly carried over into the tour. So its fitting that two new songs, I Should Have Known It and Good Enough, are included. I Should Have Known It is a hard rock nugget with a very 70s sound featuring guitar soloing in the style of Floridas other favorite musical sons, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Good Enough is a slow blues where Tench again veers into Dead territory with psychedelic organ that sounds inspired by Pigpen. Right now, the only way to get these tracks is to have bought Mojo tickets online. There is no word on whether at some point they will be released to the general public. Until and unless that happens, if you didnt buy tickets to the tour, make friends with somebody who did and get copies. If youre not already a Petty fan, these tracks might do the trick. http://www.jambands.com/reviews/cds/2011/01/17/tom-petty-live-tracks

Voldar: , , . ROCK USA 2011. ROCK USA 2011. Coming up on its 16th year, Country USA at Oshkosh has grown to become one of the largest outdoor Country Music festivals in the nation. Starshow Presents, Inc., parent corporation of Country USA, has now announced that it will create a sister event to Country USA next summer. The event is named Rock USA, a rock festival modeled very closely after the hugely successful Country USA. and will present the same stellar level of multi-million dollar entertainment. SOLID ROCK. NO LIMITS. Rock USA will brand itself as Solid Rock. No Limits. and will present a broad mix of rock in an effort to kick up the rock festival experience. The key is listening to exactly who the rock fans want to see. Some of the names that are being considered are Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Aerosmith, Alice in Chains, Nickelback, Lynryd Skynyrd, Journey, and Daughtry. Obviously, this is a wish-list that is driven by input from fans but the plan is to present major caliber rock. We can tell you right now that we are planning on pulling out all the stops to make Rock USA a smash hit but we need your input who do you want!? You tell us and well go for it. BIG EVENT. DISCOUNT TICKETS. The biggest news yet is Rock USAs highly aggressive ticket marketing concept of presenting three incredible days of world-class rock at discount pricing. In a troubled economy we need to pay attention to the fact that fans have fewer hard earned dollars available. The money doesnt come easy and its tough out there. Our goal is to offer the biggest entertainment value possible and we intend to sell Rock USA tickets at prices we feel will be the lowest festival ticket prices ever. We are working hard on getting our talent lineup booked and if all goes according to plan we will be announcing the lineup, ticket pricing and on-sale date soon! Watch for the big on-sale news because you are going to get more and pay less! http://www.rockusaoshkosh.com/

Voldar: . , Heartbeakers . Don Henley Working On Country Covers Album Don Henley is in the studio working on an album of country covers. The Eagles founder is reported to be spending this week in Nashville working on the record with producer/drummer Stan Lynch (Tom Petty & the Heartbeakers), according to Eagles fan site L&M's Eagles Fastlane. The album is also expected to feature an all-star cast. The album will make an interesting bookend to the 1993 album of country covers of Eagles songs Common Thread. That record featured acts like Travis Tritt, Clint Black, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill. Tanya Tucker and Brooks & Dunn singing the songs of the Eagles. The Common Thread album was the catalyst for the Eagles reforming one-year later. Don Henley has recorded four solo albums, I Cant Stand Still (1982), Building The Perfect Beast (1984), The End of the Innocence (1989) and Inside Job (2000). Also during that period, the Eagles released the live album Hell Freezes Over and the studio album Long Road Out Of Eden. The album will be the second of the solo albums we can expect this year. Joe Walsh told Undercover in December that he will release his first solo album in 18-years in May, 2011. Last year, Timothy B. Schmit released his solo album Expando. Glenn Freys last solo album was Strange Weather in 1992. http://www.undercover.fm/news/13472-don-henley-working-on-country-covers-album
