Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers-Mary Jane’s Last Dance- San Francisco 2-97

Tom Petty is my guest to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of Into the Great Wide Open, so here is a rare recorded concert performance of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers doing the one-off “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” which did not quite make the 1991 album and instead was a surprise hit on their Greatest Hits package. Hyperbole warning: in my humble opinion, this band can be the best live working band on the planet on any given night, and has been consistently over a forty year run. Exhibit “A” here is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ multi-night residency at the Fillmore in San Francisco in February, 1997. Turn this up as loud as your gear will go. – Redbeard
