The Live Anthology is a a couple of-disc set of recordings drawn from thirty years of live performances. The collection brings together material from 1978-2007 culled from hundreds of hours of live concert recordings covering each era of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ tours and represents the most efficient 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 a number of the most celebrated live performers of their time. At the side of 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 difficult to understand beauties to 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 lots of more. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers commute wide, paying their musical debts through song and showing just how optimistically the band moves across genres and over the years.
