This is one of the best, most engrossing, rock documentaries I have ever seen. As other reviewers have noted, the 5 hours plus encompassing the story of the band, and the 30th anniversary concert just fly by. Tom Petty comes across as a thoroughly likeable bloke, with an engagingly laconic style which masks a steely-eyed focus and determination never to settle for second best that has kept him at the top for 30 years. Lengthy interviews with Petty and all other band members, some of which reveal past tensions which still appear to rankle, are honest and revealing. Few other bands can boast 4 original members after so long, especially when they have never really delivered a duff album. Most touchingly, new drummer Steve Ferrone who replaced Stan Lynch, confesses that he would be heartbroken if it all came to an end.

This is the story of a band that feels like a band, with a charismatic leader and understated multi-talented lead guitarist, that has produced some of the finest and most tuneful American rock music of all time. Plummy Englishman Denny Cordell who first signed the band makes reference to Petty as a poet, and like most afficionados has a genuine admiration and affection for the band. The sadness at Howie Epstein's death is poignantly felt; footage of his decline into drug addiction is shocking, but in Ron Blair's return to the fold there is a sense of completion.

The 30th anniversary concert is equally impressive. Petty prowls the stage like the 'bad ass' he is described as in the documentary, but seems genuinely touched at the warm reception from the home crowd in Gainesville.

I won't repeat the previous review....simply to endorse that this is an excellent documentary, which gives plenty of interviews/background without seeming at all self-indulgent. TP's strength of character comes through very strongly, and he seems to have maintained his integrity through some hard times.
In addition to the documentary, the musical content is all that you would expect.

Highly recommended, one of the best rock films I've seen...up there with The Last Waltz.

Its all been said by other reviews,but this DVD/CD combo is absolutly stunning.
Even though I left it very late to get "into" TP&THB's I feel blessed to be a fan.
The words..the music..the feeling it gives to hear Tom's songs...The Band...the overall brilliance of a group of people that have been together (or very close) for thirty years.
Words cannot describe what I'm feeling right now.

You know whats right......... Rock on Tom :) and thankyou.

I wanted to gradually watch this so I could make it last. I failed!
I put the first disk in and I was hooked. I took the second disk to work with me the next day and watched it there!

It has everything a good film should have, a great engaging story, humour, tragedy and a brilliant sound track. Tom Petty is such an inspiration to me, (I write music myself) and this only made those feelings stronger.

You must own this boxset!

i have to agree with all the previous reviewers that this is a superb piece of work.worth the price of admission alone for the cover of Hank Williams 'Lost Highway.'Tom Petty's description of that song is not printable here but pretty much sums up the entire package.Buy it and see if you agree-i think you will.

A masterpiece. Unlike Scorcese whose relationship with Robbie Robertson distorts `The Last Waltz' into a dishonest albeit lasting piece of film making, Peter Bogdanovich does not allow himself to get in the way of his muse. For over five hours the director of `The Last Picture Show' lets the protagonists do all the talking, without voice-over or any agenda besides telling the story. If Bogdanovich only had access to the hundreds of hours of archive Petty and Heartbreakers footage this would have been a great film, but with the addition of Jim Lenahan's pre Heartbreakers 8mm footage this becomes quite unique. The foresight, or luck, involved with finding that early stuff - clearing the yard for a local free concert in their hippy university hometown of Gainesville Florida, the band breaking down on the way out to LA etc. etc. - provides this film with another dimension, making it a historical document. Through a mixture of talking heads, rare footage, stills, rehearsal and broadcast material it traces Petty from childhood infatuation with Elvis and the Beatles, to teenage meeting up with Campbell and Tench, through early local success and subsequent career highlights including Stevie Nicks, Dylan, Dave Stewart, Jeff Lynne etc. right up to a triumphant 30 year anniversary homecoming gig. Totally dedicated to his craft, Petty emerges as the highly ambitious but trusted leader of an enormously talented pool of musicians. Prepared to take on the record industry to the point of self-destruction over publishing rights, album costs etc. he also comes out as a man of considerable integrity.Read more ›
