Mudcrutch - Tom Petty's new old band

Maybe we are a bit late on this, but Tom Petty from the famed Heartbreakers has reformed a band that no one has ever heard of. Mudcrutch was a band that Petty was in before we even knew his name. Apparently, it's pretty good. Imagine his old bandmates getting that phone call.






The bands basically reformed after Petty called his old bandmates out of the blue. They were all unknown and toured with Petty on some dates last month.

I really enjoyed the first Mudcrutch album. It just has such a fresh sound- something that I haven't heard from Petty for a while. Don't get me wrong, I love most Tom Petty songs, but it seems he kind of lost his energy during the last couple of albums. I really enjoyed "Highway Companion", especially because of his work with Jeff Lynne, but it did seem to lack the sparkle of this Mudcrutch album.

I'm glad the album did well, but I do have to say that I don't agree with the repackaging of the album. I always feel like I'm not getting the whole picture when I buy an album, especially after Petty came out with that expanded edition of "Highway Companion" a few months after the initial release.
