The Backstory - I started recording this song by Tom Petty on a whim. A week later he died, so I decided to make it into a tribute to Tom. A friend, Mya Rose, happened to come into town for a visit so I pressed her into service to sing harmony. And then Kate Reuter who had sung with Mya on my last solo CD, agreed to add some harmonies too. So here is our tribute to Tom.....

And now a video.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKMsOjXCP_c

Nice tribute, Colin:

Those harmonies really worked so well. Petty must be smiling.

Hello Colin. Another great production IMO. I am a fan. Works across the board in all aspects of what makes a song work. Great Job!

Hi Colin,

So awful about Petty..miss him already..but this helps..

I'm LOVING hearing you putting your voice more upfont than in past recording.

This is just beautiful, and goose-bumpy..knowing you were writing these words well before his last concert just (apparently) did him in..

Mike

Everything in its place and the harmonies are great.

You have your own style of phrasing. I enjoyed this.

But for some reason people like tributing this song. that and wont back down

Tom's got a boatload more songs than that, and even a boatload more hits than that.

If I had gotten around to this I would have done "A Woman in Love" or "The Waiting"

Colin, I just noticed you added a video to this. I don't know which shots were of the actual recording session but I did notice a lot of wine glasses laying around... smile You did good. I enjoyed my listen all over again.
