TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS Official Live ‘Leg (1977)

Official Live ‘Leg (1977)
Short, But Sweet

A 1-sided, 12-inch live EP, recorded December 12, 1976 in Boston. It’s also known as “The Official Live Bootleg” (which is how it’s titled on the label). The great Al Kooper shows up for “Fooled Again (I Don’t Like It).” I became an early fan of TP when my brother brought me some “punk” records back from England in early ’77, and there was a nifty Petty 12 inch in the bunch. I later caught The Heartbreakers opening for Patti Smith just after “Breakdown” hit big at local radio. It was supposed to be Patti Smith’s triumphant return to a city where she fell off the stage and broke her neck the year before. Unfortunately, the crowd almost totally emptied out after Petty’s electrifying set, leaving only a couple hundred people (out of, maybe, 4 or 5 thousand – a radio station birthday bash) for Smith’s set. So it goes. This material was reissued on vinyl as part of Petty’s expanded Live Anthology HERE.

    This is great! I wish when they reissued it they used the U.K. version, which has one extra song….

    Yeah….has anyone ever seen that U.K. version? I heard it has “The Wild One, Forever” but I’ve never been able to track down a copy.
