Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Announce Posthumous Box Set, “An American Treasure”, Share New Video [Watch]

first_imgTom Petty & The Heartbreakers have announced an extensive new posthumous box set titled An American Treasure in tribute to their late leader, Tom Petty—who died suddenly in the early hours of October 3rd, 2017 at the age of 66 as a result of an accidental prescription drug overdose. The Tom Petty An American Treasure set is due to be released on September 28th via Reprise Records, less than a week shy of the first anniversary of Petty’s passing. It also marks the first posthumous release of any kind from Petty’s camp.The name, of course, is appropriate for its subject. While Petty left us all too soon, he made an indelible mark on American music and popular culture, recording countless hits, touring relentlessly across multiple decades, collaborating with some of the world’s greatest musicians, and otherwise cementing himself as one of the most iconic artists of a generation.According to Rolling Stone, the early news of the box set was revealed via a SiriusXM broadcast yesterday evening. However, anticipation for a surprise from Petty’s camp had been growing throughout the day on Monday after a mysterious countdown clock had appeared on TomPetty.com, ticking down the seconds until the official announcement at 10 a.m. EDT this morning.The new box set will include 60 (!) previously unreleased studio and live recordings of the band, obscure recorded tracks, and alternate takes on some of the band’s more popular songs. The material included in the compilation was selected by members of Tom Petty’s surviving family, including his wife, Dana Petty, and their daughter, Adria Petty, alongside Heartbreakers members like Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench and the band’s longtime recording partner, Ryan Ulyate. The set also features custom cover artwork by prominent street artist Shepard Fairey, the creator of the iconic Barack Obama 2008 “Change” posters, the ubiquitous Andre The Giant “OBEY” stencil, and more.As Adria Petty and Dana Petty explain about this “labor of love” in its announcement press release,Everyone involved in this project chose each track with tremendous care and deep respect for the body of work Tom Petty created over the course of 40 years. He also accumulated a wealth of unreleased music in his vaults, and we have collectively uncovered one gem after another that will keep us all listening and discovering new facets of Tom’s talent for many years to come. We can’t wait to share with Tom’s fans this musical portrait of an artist who deeply affected our culture and indelibly touched the lives of fans the world over.The first single from An American Treasure is “Keep A Little Soul”—a previously unreleased recording from 1982 sessions, which resulted in Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ classic album, Long After Dark. The song is available for digital download today when you pre-order your copy of An American Treasure. Watch the video featuring rare never-before-seen footage of the band below.Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – “Keep A Little Soul” [Official Music Video][Video: tompetty]The Tom Petty An American Treasure compilation will be available for purchase on September 28th. In addition to the extensive 60-track release, a less-expensive, less-extensive version will be released for purchase as a two-disc set. Pre-orders are for the Tom Petty An American Treasure set are available now.

22 Overcup oak

first_imgThis native oak species (Quercus lyrata) is also calledswamp post oak, swamp white oak and water white oak. It’s foundin wet bottom lands of the coastal plain from Delaware to Georgiaand west to Texas. It grows along the Mississippi River floodplain, too, as far north as Illinois and Indiana.Despite its tolerance of wet sites, you don’t have to live in aswamp to enjoy overcup oak. It’s this year’s Georgia Gold Medalwinner partly because it does equally well on dry, upland sitesand adapts to a variety of soils and growing environments. Itthrives in full sun in hardiness zones 5 to 9.But there’s more. Overcup oak is a tough shade tree for largelandscapes, public parks, golf courses and office parks. Whilemost oaks have a reputation for being slow growers, this treegrows fast, particularly when it’s young.Its initial growth is somewhat pyramidal. Then, with age, itgradually becomes more rounded. It typically grows 50 feet highand 50 feet wide under cultivation. But it’s been known to reach125 feet in the wild.Named for acornThe unique shape of the acorns gives the tree its name and helpsdistinguish it from other oaks. A warty cap almost completelycovers the nut. The acorns drop to the ground in the fall.They’re a good food source for wildlife, including squirrels,deer and turkeys.At first glance, overcup oak looks a lot like its white oakcousin. Like the white oak, it has rough-textured, gray-brownbark, deeply lobed leaves and yellow fall color.Nursery experts call overcup oak a tough, tolerant tree that’sperfect for less-than-perfect sites. It thrives in heavy,compacted clay soils. And it loves the heat and humidity of theDeep South.With a life span as long as 400 years, overcup oak provides aliving legacy for many future generations to enjoy. It’s easy tosee why it has emerged as the top tree out there for 2006,earning the 2006 Georgia Gold Medal for trees.(Gary Wade is a Cooperative Extension horticulturist with theUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.) Volume XXXINumber 1Page 22 By Gary WadeUniversity of Georgia”Bulletproof” is a term for plants that thrive with very littlecare in many soils and growing conditions. And overcup oak fitsthe definition perfectly.last_img read more

(Photo by Kevin Sullivan, Orange County Register/SCNG)ExpandEL SEGUNDO — As one of the summer’s biggest deals was going down last month, Anthony Davis was watching a movie while sprawled on the bed of a ritzy Malibu hotel.He had stowed his phone out of sight – he doesn’t usually like mid-film distractions. Then he realized his agent, Rich Paul, had tried to call him twice.“When I called him back, it went straight to voicemail,” Davis said. “And me being a 26-year-old, I went straight to Instagram to start looking, and that’s when I saw it.” Davis joined Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and Coach Frank Vogel in front of a horde of media, lounging easily in a director’s chair with a Lakers backdrop. At one point, he went to conference with James, who stood in the back of the team’s practice gym wearing a gold hooded sweatshirt, gleefully taking in the proceedings.After the interviews were over, Davis beamed as he raised a golden jersey – bearing his new No. 3 – to his shoulders.It marked the start of one of the biggest swings the franchise has taken to get back to championship contention after six consecutive years out of the playoffs, and at this stage, the feelings are still bright. Davis, in particular, possessed a certain loose, easy charm, seemingly liberated after six months of uncertainty since burning his bridges in New Orleans.Davis has been seen in restaurants, back hallways and on the court having discrete conversations with James over the past few months, fueling speculation they would one day be on the same team. Davis said more was made of those meet-ups than the actual substance, but still, he’s pleased to join forces with James.“I never really had a chance to experience playing alongside him,” he said. “The 2012 Olympics, I didn’t play much. I was like the towel guy, just waving towels. We had a little bit of time during the All-Star games, but to get a full season and to see the things he’s able to do – pass, shoot, talks well defensively, he’s a great leader. So I’m excited to get a lot of that this season.”Getting Davis was a long process for the Lakers, one that stalled in February and helped sink the locker rooms of both teams involved. Back then, Magic Johnson and Dell Demps handled negotiations for the Lakers and Pelicans, respectively. By April, both men had left their teams.Pelinka gave credit to his staff with the Lakers, but also the New Orleans front office led by David Griffin (and owner Gail Benson) for re-engaging on trade discussions after they broke down before the deadline last season.The Lakers gave up “extraordinary value,” Pelinka acknowledged, using Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and a host of draft considerations to get Davis. But they believe he’s worth it.“There’s no more complete basketball player in the game,” Pelinka said. “There is nothing he can’t do. He can shoot. He can make plays. He can defend 1-5. He can protect the rim. He can handle the ball. His dedication to his craft is unparalleled. To sit here next to him and think he’s gonna be on our team and that he’s going to be a pillar of this franchise for many years is just something we’re incredibly proud of.”That “many years” comment is suggestive: Technically, Davis will become an unrestricted free agent next summer, and while he has given every indication he is happy to be with the Lakers, the team still has to make sure he stays. Pelinka has explicitly stated the Lakers are building for the future with Davis in mind.At one point this summer, the Lakers hoped to be introducing two stars at once. When Davis waived his $4 million trade kicker in June, it helped the Lakers get to the $32 million in cap space they needed to have a shot at adding Kawhi Leonard on a max salary. Davis acknowledged chasing Leonard was a big reason he decided to sacrifice the kicker, but even though the Lakers didn’t get their third star, he was happy with how that money got spent.“That four million was to add more money to a player’s contract that they wanted, or get another guy, then by all means, I was willing to do that,” he said. “And I think we did a great job of using that throughout the entire team.”Some of the moves were clearly made with Davis’ positional preference in mind. He prefers playing power forward – “I’m not even going to sugarcoat it,” he said at one point – and asked the Lakers to bring in centers who could “bang inside.” That was Pelinka’s motivation to sign DeMarcus Cousins, a former teammate of Davis with whom he wanted to pair again, as well as retaining JaVale McGee.Related Articles Davis learned he was going to be a Laker from social media – he was then a wide-eyed observer in his own unfolding story.The intention of the 6-foot-11, six-time All-Star is to take a more active role in structuring his career and legacy. He asked for a trade in January because he felt somewhat sidelined, desiring control over his destiny in an NBA era in which stars have wielded their leverage like a cudgel. No one has helped set that dynamic quite like LeBron James, the 34-year-old, four-time MVP whom Davis has idolized and grown close to, and now will be his teammate.On Saturday, as he was officially introduced by the Lakers, Davis said he sees his new career chapter as a chance to redefine the player he is and do something he’s never done: Win a ring.“The opportunity to do that, and come here and play for an organization that’s all about winning – forget winning, winning championships – and that’s the only goal,” he said. “I think that was the biggest thing for me.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs center_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions The only thing Davis seemed upset about during the process was his number. Originally, James had intended to give Davis No. 23, which both men have worn during their careers. But an obscure NBA guideline that requires players staying on their team to decide to change jerseys by March meant James couldn’t foresake his old number, which meant Davis had to pick a new one. He went with three, which he said he wore during his high school days.Maybe it’s another sign of a fresh start, that Davis can put the drama of the past few months behind him and start moving from spectator to star in his own story.“As long as I can sleep at night and live with the decision that I made, I’m happy and I don’t really care what no one else thinks,” he said. “I have great people around me that I can talk to about things that’s going on and they can give me great advice. And at the end of the day, I’ll live with the decisions I make.”last_img read more
