In the middle of his 2010 concerts, Tom Petty interrupted the hits for a stretch of electric R&B and psychedelic jangle from his rebirth record, Mojo. This vinyl LP, issued for Record Store Day, is a crackling facsimile of the minisets inside those shows, including the tough freestyle strut "Takin’ My Time," the hard-blues-and-rave-up combo "I Should Have Known It" and the Allman Brothers-with-acid waltz "First Flash of Freedom." There is one non-Mojo nugget: a 1999 B side, "Sweet William," which suggests Bob Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man" juiced with the garage-rock helter-skelter of Count Five’s 1966 hit "Psychotic Reaction."
