(08/31/2007) Perhaps the biggest difference between the Hamptons Social concert series at the Ross School in East Hampton and a straight rock concert was the relative amount of ease experienced by die-hard fans on a mission to wrestle their way into the front row.

One summer morning in 1961, an 11-year-old Tom Petty sat on pine straw in his front yard, wondering how he was going to spend his day.
By the end of the afternoon, he knew how he would spend his life.
Following chart-topping sales success, and due to the overwhelming support and demand from the Traveling Wilburys fan community, Rhino will release a Vinyl Box Set and Second Edition Deluxe Sets of The Traveling Wilburys Collection on November 20, 2007. The Re-mastered and Expanded Collectible Package features unreleased Bonus Tracks and a bonus DVD featuring a 24-minute documentary including unseen footage of The Wilburys.

Tom Petty has recorded the Fats Domino classic "I'm Walking" for an upcoming charity tribute album due September 25. Other artists who are participating by putting their own spin on Fats Domino hits include Elton John, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Robert Plant and Willie Nelson. The double-disc \"Goin\' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino\" includes tracks like \"I Want to Walk You Home,\" \"Blueberry Hill,\" and \"Ain\'t That a Shame\", with proceeds to be donated to New Orleans public school music programs and to rebuilding Domino\'s Hurricane Katrina-ravaged home.
The Traveling Wilburys\' \"Collection\" (Rhino/Warner Bros.), a compilation of the erstwhile supergroup\'s two original studio albums and other material, enters at No. 1 in the UK Album charts.
The Wilburys\' albums had been unavailable for many years, and the chart-topping debut is aided by a deluxe edition featuring a DVD with videos and a documentary. The achievement is all the more remarkable considering the band\'s \"Volume 1\" album only reached No. 16 in the UK in 1988, while \"Volume 3\" hit No. 14 in 1990.
After over a decade since the music was last available to fans, the Wilburys find themselves at the top of the charts!
If you haven\'t already, head over to iTunes to get a copy of the album!
