Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Live Anthology

[3 December 2009]

By Allison Taich

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are one of those bands that continues to release greatness with age. Their latest issuance: an anthology of live performances spanning the last 30 years. This collection is by no means a greatest hits. Naturally, classics such as “American Girl”, “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”, and “Free Fallin’” make appearances, in addition to deeper cuts like “Breakdown”, “Wildflowers”, and “It’s Good to be King.” Several covers also appear on the set, including “Green Onions” by Booker T. and the MGs and “Friend of the Devil” by the Grateful Dead.
