1982/xx/xx French TV “Houba Houba”

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

French TV show “Houba Houba”

A longtime collector shared his Petty collection with me, and this is one of his shows. All I have done is split it into tracks and export to 16/44.1 .flac

I don’t have its lineage but it is a studio recording. It was labeled as being from Record Plant Studios in August 1982, but I believe that it was mislabeled. I’m quite confident that this is from the French TV show “Houba Houba” sometime in 1982. I also included the videos of “Keepin’ Me Alive”, “Wild Thing” and “Finding Out” from the French TV show. They are not high quality, I just ripped them off YouTube. 4 Other songs from 1982 were also on this tape, so they are on here as well as a bonus. Enjoy
