Pack Up The Plantation: Live!

Pack Up The Plantation: Live! by Tom Petty
Released: Feb 1986
Forget about the studio sheen of Long After Dark. Stacked with rippin' solos, the Heartbreakers devil-may-care rendering of the Byrds' "So You Want to Be a Rock 'N Roll Star" is their way of asserting that they're a real deal, larger-than-life rock act. Stevie Nicks' raunchy back up vocals on the second tune, the Sonny Bono-penned "Needles & Pins," only underscores this, as does the addition of bashing cadenzas to the band's classic tunes. Among the stellar moments here, "Breakdown" steals the show, with Petty's ranting banter making for an astounding testament to his ability as a showman.
