An excellent performance from a very youthful Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (original lineup) at Oxford Polytechnic in March 1980. The concert was recorded and first broadcast by the BBC as part of the third series of 'Rock Goes to College'.
This TV rip is from a rebroadcast of the programme in the late 1990s on the short-lived 'UK Arena' channel. It has the channel's logo in the top left of the screen throughout although this is fairly unobtrusive.
The quality is very good but not perfect. I considered uploading the original vob rip of this that I got in a trade a while ago but I didn't think there would be many takers for a 2.5 gigabyte download of a 45 minute show but let me know if you would rather have that...
