180 Gram Vinyl Record
|No. of Discs:||2|
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are releasing stand-alone 180-gram vinyl reissues, all but one included as part of The Complete Studio Albums Volume 1 (1976-1991) released last year to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the band's self-titled debut album.
Quality Record Pressings is pressing eight titles, which include Damn the Torpedoes, Hard Promises, Long After Dark, Pack Up The Plantation-Live (2LP), Southern Accents, Let Me Up (I've Had Enough), Full Moon Fever and Into the Great Wide Open. Pack Up The Plantation-Live was not included in the Volume 1 (1976-91) box set.
Each LP includes full replica artwork.
"Considering that Southern Accents took so much time and money to complete, finally hitting the stores two and a half years after Long After Dark, it wasn't surprising that Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers decided to release a double live album, Pack Up the Plantation: Live!, a mere eight months after its release.
"After all, Southern Accents was criticized from many corners for being too slick, too much in Dave Stewart's corner instead of the Heartbreakers', so it made sense to quickly return the focus to the band, showcasing the group as the rockers they are. Pack Up the Plantation does do that, even if it isn't quite the barnburner it should have been. ... the weaker songs and dubious choices are outweighed by a strong performance and neat surprises like a tough "Insider" and covers of "So You Want to Be a Rock & Roll Star," "Needles and Pins," and "Don't Bring Me Down." That alone makes it worth investigating for dedicated fans." — AllMusic
