Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Pack Up the Plantation: Live! on 180g 2LP
It's been 40 years since Tom Petty and his extraordinary band, The Heartbreakers, unleashed their eponymous debut in 1976. In the subsequent decades, Petty - both as a solo artist and as leader of the band - has sold over 80 million records worldwide, earned 18 Grammy nods and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Petty's musical integrity and craft, not to mention his seemingly effortless flair for rapturous hooks, have remained constant despite ever-shifting musical trends, and his multi-generational fan base continues to swell. In the words of Rolling Stone's Alan Light, "The man's consistency is pretty astounding."
Pack Up the Plantation is Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers first live album, primarily featuring tracks recorded at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, California in 1985 while the band was on their Southern Accents tour and a handful of additional numbers captured on previous tours circa 1978-1983. Featuring classics galore like "The Waiting," "Breakdown," "American Girl," "Insider," "Refugee," "I Need To Know," and "You Got Lucky" plus excellent covers of "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star," "Needles And Pins," "Don't Bring Me Down" and "Shout."
