Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - San Francisco - 3CD
LIVE BROADCAST RECORDING FROM TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKER S CLASSIC FILLMORE SHOWS During the early 1990s they d been on a hiatus of sorts, but by 95 Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers had fully reunited to coincide with the release of their six CD Playback box set.
After an extended tour, the band spent much of 96 writing and recording the soundtrack album Songs And Music From "She's The One". While not one of their most successful records, it still produced three Top 20 hits while featuring appearances from Lindsey Buckingham, Ringo Starr, George Harrison and Carl Wilson. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers began 1997 with a staggering 20-date residency at The Fillmore in San Francisco, which ran from 10th January to 7th February. The final date of this extended run was deemed, in most quarters, one of the finest shows the group had ever performed, and was luckily recorded for live FM broadcast.
Now included in its entirety on this triple CD box set for the first time, the show features a mix of hits, rarities and covers - including numbers originally by The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, Van Morrison, Booker T. And The MGs and a host of others - and includes too a guest appearance from blues legend John Lee Hooker, who joins the band as lead vocalist for three of his own songs.
