Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers High Grass Dogs Live from the Fillmore 1999
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers High Grass Dogs Live from the Fillmore: If your ideal concert experience depends on flashpots, lasers, and fabulous costumes, turn back now. On the other hand, if youre looking for no-frills, straight-ahead rock & roll played with good humor and passion, youve come to the right place. Filmed in March 99 at San Franciscos legendary Fillmore and seen here in letterbox format with great sound, High Grass Dogs finds Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers in fine form, charging through a series of tunes from the guitarist-singer-songwriters first album (Breakdown) to his latest (four tunes from Echo). Pettys core musicians (guitarist Mike Campbell, bassist Howie Epstein, and keyboardist Benmont Tench) have been together for so long that their onstage communication is almost telepathic; the emphasis is always on dynamics and interplay instead of bombast. There may not be any surprises here, with the possible exception of an appearance by Bo Diddley on his own Mona, but thats a good thing. Indeed, the only mystery may be where Petty came up with that weird title ..........................Songs Include: Intro/California, Jammin Me, Runnin Down a Dream, Swingin, Breakdown, Listen to Her Heart, You Dont Know How It Feels, Mary Janes Last Dance, Mona/Bo Diddley, Lay Down My Old Guitar, Even the Losers, Walls, Angel Dream, Room at the Top, County Farm, You Wreck Me, I Dont Wanna Fight, Free Fallin, Free Girl Now.
