"Runnin' Down a Dream" (1991)

Having cooked up magic together with Full Moon Fever, Petty wrangled that album's producer, Jeff Lynne, to join the Heartbreakers in the studio for what became Into the Great Wide Open. The 1991 album's eponymous tour was captured on the rare out-of-print VHS release Take the Highway Live. As captured during two nights in November 1991 in Reno, Nevada, and Oakland, California, the tour's set lists were heavy on material from the band's recent album but also included a healthy dose of Full Moon Fever cuts including a wicked take on "Runnin' Down a Dream."
