Friday 12/2/22 1am ET: Feature Live LP: Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers – Live At The Fillmore 1997 (2022)

Live at the Fillmore 1997 is a 2022 live album compiling Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 20-concert residency at The Fillmore in San Francisco in January and February 1997. The album includes fifty-eight tracks pulled primarily from the last six concerts performed in the residency. Those six shows were professionally recorded and tracks from the setlists in those shows have seen previously release on The Live Anthology and the 2020 expanded reissue of Petty’s 1994 album Wildflowers.

Tom Petty considered the residency by the Heartbreakers at the Fillmore “a highlight of his career” and guitarist Mike Campbell labeled the concerts “some of my favorite gigs ever.” During the final concert at the Fillmore, Petty remarked to the audience that, “We all feel this might be the highpoint of our time together as a group… It’s going to be hard to get us off this stage tonight.”

In addition to a selection of the Heartbreakers and Tom Petty’s solo tracks from their career by 1997, the residency and the album documented the band’s music interests and featured performances by guests such as Roger McGuinn and John Lee Hooker. Out of the fifty-eight songs included in the collection, thirty-five are covers of songs by those that influenced, inspired, or performed with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The first two singles released from the set in September and October 2022 highlighted performances of “Listen to Her Heart” and “I Won’t Back Down”, while the third single released in early November 2022, “Call Me the Breeze,” showcased one of two tracks originally by J. J. Cale covered by the band during the Fillmore residency.

Friday 11/25/22 1am ET: Feature Live LP: Deep Purple – Made In Japan (1972)

Made in Japan is a double live album by English rock band Deep Purple, recorded during their first tour of Japan in August 1972. It was originally released December 8, 1972, with a US release in April 1973, and became a commercial and critical success.

The band were well known for their strong stage act, and had privately recorded several shows, or broadcast them on radio, but were unenthusiastic about recording a live album until their Japanese record company decided it would be good for publicity. They insisted on supervising the live production, including using Martin Birch, who had previously collaborated with the band, as engineer, and were not particularly interested in the album’s release, even after recording. The tour was successful, with strong media interest and a positive response from fans.

The album was an immediate commercial success, particularly in the US, where it was accompanied by the top five hit “Smoke on the Water”, and became a steady seller throughout the 1970s.

  1. “Highway Star” 6:52
  2. “Child in Time” 12:25

Friday 10/21/22 1am ET: Feature Live LP: Allman Brothers Band – Eat A Peach (1972)

Eat a Peach is the third studio album by American rock band the Allman Brothers Band. Produced by Tom Dowd, the album was released on February 12, 1972, in the United States by Capricorn Records. Following their artistic and commercial breakthrough with the release of the live album At Fillmore East (1971), the Allman Brothers Band got to work on their third studio album. Many in the band were struggling, however, with heroin addictions, and checked into rehab to confront these problems. On October 29, 1971, group leader and founder Duane Allman was killed in a motorcycle accident in the band’s hometown of Macon, Georgia, making it the final album to feature the guitarist.

Eat a Peach was a mix of studio recordings—both with and without Duane Allman—and recordings from the band’s famed 1971 Fillmore East performances. The album contains the extended half-hour-long “Mountain Jam”, which was long enough to take up two full sides of the original double-LP. Other highlights include vocalist Gregg Allman’s performance of his brother’s favorite song, “Melissa”, plus Dickey Betts’ “Blue Sky”, which went on to become a classic rock radio staple.

The album artwork was created by W. David Powell and J. F. Holmes at Wonder Graphics, and depicts the band’s name on a peach truck, in addition to a large gatefold mural of mushrooms and fairies. The album’s title came from a quote by Duane Allman: “You can’t help the revolution, because there’s just evolution … Every time I’m in Georgia, I eat a peach for peace”.

Issued as a double album in February 1972, Eat a Peach was an immediate commercial success and peaked at number four on Billboard’s Top 200 Pop Albums chart. The album was later certified platinum and remains a top seller in the band’s discography.

It is one of the best-selling live albums in the United States. “Show Me the Way”, “Baby, I Love Your Way”, and “Do You Feel Like We Do” were released as singles; all three reached the Top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100, and frequently receive airplay on classic rock radio stations. Following four solo albums with little commercial success, Frampton Comes Alive! was a breakthrough for Frampton.

It was ranked No. 41 on Rolling Stone’s “50 Greatest Live Albums of All Time” list. Readers of Rolling Stone ranked it No. 3 in a 2012 poll of all-time favorite live albums.

Friday 10/14/22 1am ET: Feature Live LP: Grateful Dead – Europe ’72 (1972)

Europe ’72 is a live triple album by the Grateful Dead, released November 5, 1972. It covers the band’s tour of Western Europe in April and May that year, and showcases live favourites, extended improvisations and several new songs including “Jack Straw” and “Brown Eyed Women”. The album was the first to include pianist Keith Godchaux and his wife, vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux, and the last to feature founding member Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, who died shortly after its release.

The European tour was expensive and logistically complicated, and the band’s record company hoped that a live album would recoup its costs. Consequently, the entire tour was recorded, with highlights making it onto the final release. Europe ’72 is one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed albums by the Dead. It was one of the first triple-record rock albums to be certified gold by RIAA; the album has since been certified double platinum. A second volume was released in 2011, in conjunction with the release of the entire 22-date tour as Europe ’72: The Complete Recordings.
