Live Albums I Played In October 2017

The live albums I played in October 2017 are likely to remain centred around blues and blues rock but we’ll have to see what develops.

Last month it was Walter Becker of Steely Dan, in October it is Tom Petty whose untimely and sad death on October 2, has caused me to change my plans on what gets paid. I bought American Girl when it came out in 1977. He was someone who I always thought had a classic live album in him but I found Pack Up The Plantation unworthy. The four CD The Live Anthology is much better but it’s only with the release of the unofficial radio broadcasts that we can experience the thrill of listening to a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers concert.

What I didn’t expect was the move to hard rock. Inspired by hearing two Uriah Heep songs while I was watching old episodes of the TV detective series Life On Mars, I loved playing Live 1973, so much I bought a much more recent live album – Live In Kawasaki. It also took me towards Thin Lizzy, UFO, The Who etc.
