Thanks to tumanov for sharing the tracks at Dime.

  2. Tom Petty R..I. P. 1950 / 2017 . To me this one really stings . Been a Petty fan for decades . Can’t believe it We are slowly losing all the great ones . Always liked Tom better than Springsteen. Have a very heavy heart right now . Tom was like no other and will be missed immensely.
