THREE DISC BROADCAST COLLECTION DISC 1 – The Coliseum, Jacksonville, FL, 24th July 1987

DISC TWO Deans Dome, Chapel Hill, NC, 13th September 1989 DISC 3 – RARE TV BROADCASTS 1978 – 1994

This three disc set adds to Tom Petty’s body of work by making available in one collection these broadcast recordings from the live canon of one of Pop & Rock music’s most respected and successful performers

His first album hit the streets in 1976 and initially its arrival caused few heads to turn. Music fans were confused; were these a bunch of punks or 1960s revivalists with a liking for Gene Clark era Byrds? Fortunately, as is so often the case, the UK seemed to ‘get it’ pretty soon after the record s release there and it reached #24 on the British chart. News traveled West, and a full year after the home turf release Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers entered the Billboard chart. Shortly thereafter second album You’re Gonna Get It! was released, and became a hit right away. The rest, as they say, is history. But it s relatively recent history about which any number of books, films and of course superlative albums are readily available for students of this remarkable performer to delve into. What a fantastic release! Three CDs of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers live and at their very best. Good sound quality and some of their best material
