Remember when Tom Petty battled his record company to keep his LP at $7.49? Well Tom is dead and greed wins in the end.
I love Tom Petty and I love Wildflowers, but $250 is beyond my affection. These “super deluxe” things are pissing me off. (Yes, I’m pointing at you Pink Floyd as well) I’m being priced out of ownership and shunted over to streaming.
Sorry, but no thanks.
Tom did an entire record railing against ripping off fans called “The Last DJ”. Seriously. Listen to the words on it. He rails against just this kind of schiit.
But, hey, the T-shirts are only $40, right?
But he died and his family wants to live in the life they were accustomed to, so we have $500 box sets released for a single album.
