Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Fully Autographed “Official Live ‘Leg” 1977 Promotional Live LP
A rare first pressing of the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 1977 promotional album Official Live ‘Leg, signed at the time of the album’s manufacture by the full band: Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Ron Blair, Stan Lynch and Benmont Tench. Official Live ‘Leg was recorded at Paul’s Mall in Boston in mid December 1976; it was pressed onto a single-sided LP and sent to radio stations, the press, and retailers to demonstrate the band’s awesome live power. Very quickly convincing bootlegs were made of this rare album, and the legend of Official Live ‘Leg began to spread.
This original Shelter Records pressing is signed on the back cover, with each band member’s signing close to their position in the central photograph. The cover is in EX condition, with clean front and back, and some wear to the edges and about 3 1/2″ of chipping along the spine (the spine has no writing, so it’s a minimal distraction). The number 187 is written neatly in the top right corner of the back cover; we’ve seen at least one other numbered copy, suggesting it was numbered by the record company. The disc is in Near Mint- condition.
This has been authenticated by music autograph expert Roger Epperson, and comes with his Certificate of Authenticity, as well as Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity. A great Petty collection from the beginning of his legendary band’s career.
