The first ever career-spanning multiple-disc set of live recordings by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers brings together the best material from thirty years, 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 tarcks and 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.
