This is the third staggering, languid dirge from this album that I've heard.  Disappointing work from these guys.

Please feel free to go to another station to get your Taylor Swift fix.

I for one wouldn't mind a "Blues Classics" CD with these guys.
edit:just bumped it up to Ten !  The FIRST 10.{#Smile}
Tom Petty, blues dude...who knew?

I was at a Denny's with my grandma once and commented on the generic food and generic decor and generic waitresses and grandma hit me with her purse and said "don't make fun of geriatrics!"

I've loved other tracks from this LP, but this one drags. It doesn't help that he sounds like Carol Channing on that opening "Takin' my time..." line.

Generic blues song. A solid 4. Nothing to differentiate it from any others.

Generic blues song. A solid 4. Nothing to differentiate it from any others.

Hey Bill,
You should play this whole album.
You're up to 9 songs off it now, that must be some kind of record.

But please please please don't overplay it.


Excellent song by the way.

 
Well we did ask for more..... and our nice DJ actually listens  {#Kiss}

I heard him interviewed last night on Tavis Smiley.   He said it was bluesy and I can hear it is.   From what I have heard so far...I really like it.  I am just glad he didn't go any farther with it.   We don't need any more regurgitated blues.   
...uncharacteristically bluesey for them, but well played...

This is SO different for TP and the Homewreckers... I think I'll have to buy this CD, because I've liked everything from it so far. {#Dancingbanana_2}
I always wanted to be first at something.  :)

Solid effort from a remarkably consistent gang.
