Tom Petty livearkiver i boks
Det er riktignok ikke fastsatt en eksakt utgivelsesdato enda, men etter alt å dømme har Tom Petty-fans løst julepresangproblemet (til seg selv) med utgivelsen av »The Live Anthology«, konsertopptak fra tretti år med Florida-rockeren. »The Live Anthology« kommer i flere versjoner, der DeLuxe-utgaven later til å være regnbuens ende for dedikerte tilhengere.
Her er TomPetty.coms pressemelding i sakens anledning:
TomPetty.com are very excited to announce the upcoming release of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers' 'The Live Anthology', a multiple 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 every era of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ tours and represents the best tracks as chosen by producers Tom Petty, Mike Campbell and Ryan Ulyate.
Along with 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 obscure beauties to unexpected adaptations. The theme from 'Goldfinger', the Zombies’ “I Want You Back Again,» Grateful Dead’s “Friend of the Devil,« Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well,» Booker T & The MG's “Green Onions«, James Brown’s “Good, Good Lovin’” and many more. 'The Live Anthology' is the band’s story told through the music alone; the producers made no fixes or overdubs.
In addition to offering 'The Live Anthology' via digital outlets including iTunes, 'The Live Anthology' will be available in the following configurations, each with artwork and packaging by renowned contemporary artist Shepard Fairey :
A four CD set of 48 tracks.
A deluxe box set featuring 62 tracks on five CD's plus two previously unreleased DVDs including the 1978 New Year’s Eve concert from Santa Monica, CA, and the Martyn Atkins documentary '400 Days' shot during the recording and tour for 'Wildflowers', a re-mastered vinyl of the 1976 'Official Live 'Leg' bootleg, a High Resolution Blu-ray Audio Disc featuring all 62 tracks in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. This disc has 256 times more audio resolution than a CD.
