Nice Tom Petty Show From The Winterland

Here on HAD, we try to keep a tab on some classic San Francisco concerts that are available online. If you're anything like us, you can take a little bit of nostalgia along with your hearty meal of the latest and greatest. Well, Wolfgang's Vault has posted a nice Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers concert from '78 at Bill Graham's Winterland. The Winterland was a classic venue of the 70's, and is now the site of, you guessed it, condos! Ah, what is this world coming to? Anyway, back to the Petty: The show is a prime late-seventies recording, from the night before New Year's Eve. It's a fantastic show with the band in their prime, an honest to goodness intro by Bill Graham himself, and a few rarities to boot! It's not only a great show, but a nice warm up for Outside Lands as well. Enjoy...
