  • All right, New York City baby. We’re celebrating here tonight.
    Just because, just being alive, just being alive in this city is reason enough to celebrate.
    And we’re gonna celebrate it. (before Clean-Cut Kid)
  • You and me, we had it all. Ha-ha. I sung that for anybody who’s ever had their heart broken
    just one time.
  • All right, I’m gonna play all the songs in the same key tonight. It seems like a good idea.
    What do you think? (before It Ain’t Me, Babe)
  • Thank you. Thank you very much. Tom and I are gonna sing an old song for you now.
    A song they used to play on the radio when we were growing up.
    I think I’m the oldest person here, am I right? Oh, I’m sorry.
    OK, when I was growing up they used to play these kind of songs on the radio.
    Anyway they don’t write these kind of songs anymore. Kind of a shame, but it’s true.
    So this is about, … song about a man who thinks he knows it all, ha-ha but, ….
    (before I Forgot More Than You’ll Ever Know)
  • I wanna say hello to all those people standing over there to the right.
    I wanna say hello to all of them. You know who you are. And you do too.
    All right, anybody know what time it is? What time is it?
    All you rock music critics should know. I know there’s plenty of you out there.
    You know what time it is? I hope you do. Or you ain’t gonna be a rock critic for long?
    (before Band Of The Hand)
  • OK, Ricky Nelson, he did a lot of my songs, Ricky Nelson.
    I wanna do one of his called Lonesome Town. Actually I heard this song when I was about oh,
    say I dunno, two years old. It really had an impression on me. (plays Lonesome Town)
    Thank you. Thank you, Ricky.
  • All right, ha-ha, what time is it. We got a curfew tonight.
    If youíre checking on that right now, this might … time, what time is it? Weíve gone over
    curfew. OK, I wanna introduce Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers too.
    On the keyboards, Benmont Tench. All the people in the back can hear it right.
    Ha-ha, OK, New York City baby. Ok now, on the guitar, Michael Campbell.
    Right, on the drums now, Stan Lynch. OK now, on the bass guitar, and the rest of the
    instruments, Howie Epstein. I especially wanna thank Mr. Tom Petty himself.
    A real gentleman, he should be around a long time. And another old friend of mine,
    and a special guest guitar player, Ronnie Wood. Actually Ronnie’s been up here for
    a while now, ha-ha. I also of course have my own Heartbreakers.
    I’m glad some of you recognize that. That’s Queen Esther Marrow and Carolyn Dennis,
    Madelyn Quebec and Louise Bethune. Anybody out there wanna be introduced? Ha-ha,
    Iím ready to introduce anybody tonight. (before Like A Rolling Stone)
  • All right now, we played that for all the, you know weíve got all the Ray Charles fans out
    there tonight. We played that for you all. (after Unchain My Heart)

7/15/86, Madison Square Garden. NYC
from the cb master audience

very good to excellent sound; upfront talking d1t8; strange noise possibly
clapping at d1t10 1:17 & 1:35

(a bittorrent from 12/13 is missing d3t7,8,9 and is a sort of close eac match on d1t2
with same digital flaws plus another set of discontinuities between tracks;
described as “Audience Recording 145 mins” with filenames like “bd86-07-15d1tr01.flac”;

(a bittorrent from 01/14 is a close eac match on d1t1 with same digital flaws plus more
discontinuities between tracks; mis-described as “LB-0536” and also as
“CB master cassette>DAT>CDR>Direct audio converter>HD, DP” with filenames like “Disc 1\CD Track 1.flac”; xref-01340)

drop/cut between cdrs; discontinuities between tracks
