Tom Petty Part Two

The week is almost over, and I still have Tom Petty Part Two, to publish. It’s great, I completed what I wanted for this week, which is new to me.

1988–1991: Traveling Wilburys And Solo Career

In 1988, Petty joined George Harrison‘s group, the Traveling Wilburys, which alsoincluded Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne. The band‘s first song, Handlewith Care, was intended as a B-side of one of Harrison‘s singles, but was judgedtoo good for that purpose and the group decided to record a full album, TravelingWilburys Vol. 1. A second Wilburys album, mischievously titled Traveling WilburysVol. 3 and recorded without the recently deceased Orbison, followed in 1990. Thealbum was named Vol. 3 as a response to a series of bootlegged studio sessionsbeing

I wasn’t sure if I should do this one,Bonnie Raitt Part Two yet, without doing Part Three tomorrow. However if I wasn’t going to do this one, then I should I do Part Three, without Part Two. People would laugh at me, thinking why put out Part Three without Part Two. So I decided to have Part Two, so nobody can laugh at me. (You can laugh ate me, but I can’t hear it, unless you live by me).

Tongue And Groove And Release From Warner Brothers

In 1983, as Raitt was finishing work on her follow-up album, entitled Tongue and Groove, Warner Brothers cleaned house, dropping a number of major artists such as Van Morrison and Arlo Guthrie from their roster. The day after mastering was completed on Tongue & Groove, the record label dropped Raitt also.
