Product description

The Live Anthology is a multiple-disc set of recordings drawn from thirty years of live performances. The collection brings together material from 1978-2007 culled from hundreds of hours of live concert recordings covering every era of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' tours and represents the best tracks as chosen by producers Tom Petty, Mike Campbell and Ryan Ulyate.
The producers made no fixes or overdubs, letting the newly mixed original recordings showcase the invention, spontaneity, craft, and the musicianship that has made Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers among the most celebrated live performers of their time. Along with powerful interpretations of their own classic hits and originals, The Live Anthology features the band tackling some of their best-loved cover material, from classics to obscure beauties to unexpected adaptations. The theme from Goldfinger, the Zombies' 'I Want You Back Again,' the Grateful Dead's 'Friend of the Devil,' early Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh Well,' Booker T. and the MGs' 'Green Onions,' James Brown's 'Good, Good Lovin' and many more. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers travel wide, paying their musical debts through song and showing just how confidently the band moves across genres and over time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Live Album
By Lloyd Morgan on 21 September 2020
Fantastic live album. All the tracks are superbly recorded. I can throw on any disc and it’s a great listen. Shows Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers were really a live band at heart.
