Ok, let's start by saying that this is not an official Tom Petty release and it's credited to being Tom Petty live and not Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers which it clearly is. This recording is taken from a live radio broadcast and so suffers from the problems that occur with this kind of recording being live with no overdubs. Although all the instruments are audible, even the tinkling of Benmont's keyboards, I think the songs would have benefitted from a better remixing such as bringing the guitars more upfront on some songs. Also, it is a bone of contention as to what actually is audience participation and audience interference. The audience is clearly audible throughout the songs and though I have no problems with clapping along per se, I feel that several of the songs suffer from whooping and whistling which should have been edited out. The editing between songs is terrible but since this does not affect the songs themselves is no big problem. Having said all this, this is still a very good quality recording far superior than the Live On Air cd. The songs King's Road, Don't Come Around Here No More and Runaway Trains alone are worth the price of this cd all being excellent workouts. The cd includes five fine cover versions showcasing how the band were influenced by other artists with For What It's Worth probably being the most noteworthy. This cd is a good representation of where the Heartbreakers were at in 1987. The band were dissatisfied with their latest album Let Me Up (I've Had Enough) and rarely played songs from that album on the tour to promote it, hence the inclusion of only one song from that album.

This radio broadcast captures a fiery performance by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers from 1987 with a set that has plenty of interesting cover versions. The intensity of the performance reminds me that, when they first appeared in 1976, they were seen as a US equivalent of Graham Parker or Elvis Costello with links to punk and new wave. Petty moved back to classic rock territory with his big hit studio albums but this captures that original power.

I like it a lot but I'd recommend Transmission Impossible which collects together this live performance from 1987 together with another from and 1989 and a bits and pieces collection of Tom Petty on TV because it's better value for money.

Although it is another bootleg it does sound great and captures T.P. very well with a great track listing and performance.Well worth buying.
