Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Soundstage Live

Pär Winberg Format: DVD

Label: Soundstage

Artist discography


My biggest mistake of all time when it come to music was the decision back in 1989 when I decided to stay home on a party that a friend of my girlfriend back then had instead of going down to Gothenburg too see Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers live.
The Heartbreakers is without ANY doubts the coolest band on earth. Mike Campbell on guitar, Benmont Tench on keys, Scott Thurston on everything, Steve Ferrone on drums and Ron Blair on bass. It doesn?t get better than that.
The DVDlabel and TV-show Soundstage that is a wonderful company producing tons of cool liveDVD?s with all kinda heroes have done a perfect job and this DVD with Petty is very intimate and good sounding. No extravaganza at all. It?s just a bunch of cool guys delivering 22 great tracks from the whole career (and a few bluesclassics and covers). The best songs on here is a marvelous version of ?Angel Dream?, where Tom is getting under your skin like no one else can, a grrovy version of Traveling Wilbury?s ?Handle With Care? (listen to Thurston harmonies on that one), the classic ?Refugee? in a very vital version (listen to the guitarsolo by Campbell!), ?You Don?t Know How It Feels? and ?Your Wreck Me? as the perfect ending. But all songs are good (except for two boring bluestracks) so it?s quite unnecessary to sit here and list songs for you, and the visualpart of the DVD is as I said great with a close and naked look. Is there anything to complain about? It shold be the fact that there are some classics missing. Where the hell is ?Learning To Fly? for example.
And what about the party I choose instead of the gig back in 1989? It was a real damn boring one.
