Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Move In Spirited Tracks
By Daniel Brogan
Chicago Tribune - December 6, 1985

TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS, Pack Up The Plantation--Live! (MCA): An eclectic mix of Petty's own work and his favorite Byrds, Searchers and Animals covers. Former collaborator Stevie Nicks stops by to pitch in on "Needles and Pins" and "Insider." Recorded at a variety of venues on Petty's most recent tour, this two-record set never attempts to reproduce the feel of a Heartbreakers concert, and thus at times seems a bit disjointed, but the individual tracks are spirited throughout. An accompanying home video will soon be released.
