This is Tom Petty during a solo tour. Casual fans might not be able to tell the difference between his solo career and his work with The Heartbreakers; this is a somewhat sore subject that has even resulted in one of The Heartbreakers leaving the band. For our purposes, the difference is basically song selection.

Petty weaves in his solo work, touching on his time with the Traveling Wilburys ("Handle With Care "), and bringing in some blues classics. Essentially, a Heartbreakers show is going to be Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers greatest hits; a solo show is going to be whatever he feels like playing.

Petty solo is a bit more stripped down than with the band. He does play with a band, but they are not the focus; they are not the show, they don't need their moments of focus. This is not an issue most of the time. The really noticeable track is Handle With Care; you really miss the unique voices of the rest of the Wilburys here. But otherwise, it sounds fine, he has a talented group of musicians backing him up, you'll never feel musically cheated in this set.

Petty really shines with some of his solo songs, they get to air out a bit after being shelved during Heartbreaker tours. Early in the set, he does a mournful, yet hopeful Crawlin' Back To You. He finishes the set with one of his best pure rock songs, You Wreck Me. This performance stacks up against any rock song, Petty puts everything into this one. Somewhere in between the two is You Don'T Know How It Feels, not hard but steady, as if struggling to find something to protest.

Petty is known for his love performances, and he does not disappoint here. His setlist is like a great song, it changes at the right times, starts off slow, builds up steam, then finishes with all he's got. I normally recommend buying a track or two before getting a full album, but go ahead and get this entire set, it would be a shame to break up such a work of art. Recommended for his fans, and for anyone who loves rock.
