Click here to check Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers “Spike”…”Southern Accents” is the stealth-like gem of the canon of Tom Petty albums…”Long After Dark” is a close second…the non- hits are the pleasant surprises.

Click here to go to LP to check Mott The Hoople’s “Ready For Love/After Lights”…Mick Ralphs added a little more muscle to the tune when it surfaced with Bad Co…Of course Mr. Rodgers vocals had something to do with that.  I dig both versions though.  Good post by LP…haven’t thought about this version in a long while.
