"Don't do me Like That" - Mudcrutch Version
Recorded at Leon Russell's Home Studio - Encino, California

In Conversations With Tom Petty...
Petty discusses the last days of Mudcrutch when they recorded at Leon Russell's house when the band recorded "Hometown Blues":
"Yeah, that was the dying days of Mudcrutch. Mudcrutch's last hurrah. And that's why there's a couple of them on the record. And the record didn't really take shape until Duck Dunn played his bass line. That was the last throws of me being a solo artist, was how that track started.
"I did bring The Heartbreakers in, and they overdubbed to the track. But the basic track was Randall Marsh, Mudcrutch's drummer, and Duck Dunn playing the bass and Charlie Sousa, in the last few minutes of Mudcrutch, we brought him in to be the bass player, and he really didn't know how to play the sax, but he was playing it. and it got this really kind of STAX sound. "It was on a tape at Leon's house that someone already used. And I actually engineered the basic track. Because there was nobody around..."
