THE NEW YORK SHUFFLE
this 1977 show reveals a unit as tight & punchy as any then knocking ‘em dead at cbgb’s or at london’s vortex club.
what this fine show, broadcast as it was on wmir fm new york, illustrates nicely & to full effect is that while tom petty & the boys were largely influenced by the music of the previous decade they were not immune to the energy & dynamism of the punk & new wave genres then making waves in the uk, europe & in new york. two bonus cuts included on this cd, also from a 1977 radio broadcast, but recorded earlier in the year at la’s record plant are equally vital & make for a fine collection of tom petty & the heartbreakers live in the year of their emergence on the music scene.
