Written by Tom Petty and Benmont Tench, the song „Melinda“ was never put on a studio album. Even now there exists no studio version. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers however keep on performing it live regularly. It’s a genuine crowd-pleaser and one of Tom’s very personal favourites. It might well be that the tune was recorded secretly (or in the meantime) and is waiting for a release in the near future. I wouldn’t be surprised!
Another fine live version of the song can be found on Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers‘ "Live Anthology" 4-CD-Box Set (2009).
