Ok, I listened to the Home Recordings disc today...

Tom Petty - Wildflowers & All The Rest (Deluxe)

I left the Home Recordings as the last disc to listen to. Demo recordings are usually just ok to me with these sets with maybe some interesting things but I gotta say, this recording is very well done. This wasn't a cassette recorder sitting next to him while he sang and strummed guitar ! We have a very well recorded, mainly acoustic versions of his songs. Good vocals, some times with harmony vocals, sometimes double tracked acoustic guitars or electric guitar, harmonica and one with bass and percussion. The vocals are intimate which really sounded great on several songs. Highlights for me were Don't Fade On Me (different lyrics & very touching vocals), Wake Up Time, Hung Up and Overdue, and Wildflowers.
This is a very nice set.

nice !! tell us your impressions please. thanks !!
I just finished listening to the all four discs. This is a great set. The first disc is his Wildflowers solo masterpiece. The second disc, All The Rest, is good and I'm looking forward to becoming more familiar with these new songs. They are completed studio recordings and would have made Wildflowers a great double album. The Home Recordings are like an "unplugged" set. I really enjoyed them and found his intimate vocals quite touching in places. The live album is a lot of fun and again is top notch in quality... You get to hear Tom perform these songs live with a little talking to the audience.... which makes you miss him even more...

This is a great set. Highly recommended.

I've forgotten how much I liked David Sanborn back in the day ! Man he can jam ! I saw him in concert several times during the mid late 80s and they were always a lot of fun ! Hey @Goona I seem to recall you spreading some love for Sanborn a short while back. If you don't have a lot of his music, this new 3 CD set is a great way to check out a lot of his best !

Streaming in CD quality on Amazzon Muzik while pedaling the airdyne:

Frank Zappa Halloween 81 11/1/81 show.

Dumb All Over > Heavenly Bank Account > Suicide Chump > Jumbo Go Away > Envelopes > Drowning Witch

It's poignant to hear Frank skewer the Neutron Bomb (remember that?), religious zealotry leading to war, and televangelists in light of current events and subsequent 39 years of history.
