Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers :: Fooled Again… / Live 1976

It's kind of hard to fathom that, at one time, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers were a band that a lucky punter could see in a small club. Fortunately, Shelter Records had the foresight to record the group on a night when they were most definitely 'on', back in December 1976 at Paul's Mall, Boston. Unbelievably, the group didn't even headline that night, Al Kooper did.

Unfortunately, the official release was a promo-only one sided job that was drafted in limited quantities for radio and press in 1977, just as the group was starting to gain popularity. Not an easy record to find - beyond the small pressing, the nondescript white cover has a printed number (made to look like a test pressing) that mentions nothing about the contents within.
