Product Description

34 gems from 1976-1993, sequenced and remastered by Petty! The newly recorded Surrender is here (and only here!) with hits, solo tracks and tunes not included on 1993's Greatest Hits ; includes Stop Dragging My Heart Around (with Stevie Nicks); Free Fallin'; Don't Do Me Like That; A Woman in Love; So You Wanna Be a Rock and Roll Star; Jammin' Me; Don't Come Around Here No More; Into the Great Wide Open; Refugee , and more!

The most striking thing about this two-disc overview of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers is the powerful case it makes for its creators as the most consistent band of not only their era, but of all time. Think of another rocker who can claim to have created a quarter-century of recordings that, when ranked on a 10-point scale, never dip below a solid 7? Indeed, while disc 1 reflects a marginally more aggressive mindset than disc 2, it wouldn't be difficult to imagine the discs flip-flopped; maturity has yet to induce lethargy for Petty and the boys. Occupying the solid middle ground between the 18-track Greatest Hits and the six-disc Playback box, Anthology serves up 34 selections, nearly every one an FM staple. From 1976's "Breakdown" through the collection's only new offering, 2000's "Surrender," this retrospective never flags. But how could it? --Steven Stolder

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers have already released two hits collections, 1993's single disk Greatest Hits and 1995's six-cd box set Playback. While the Greatest Hits was a nice collection, it left out a number of the band's hits and the Playback collection was really for hardcore fans. This Anthology collection is the perfect medium between the two. It has just about every great Heartbreakers song with a couple of Petty's solo hits sprinkled in without the alternative takes and unreleased tracks that clutter up a box set.

The problem with anthologies, especially those of still-performing artistes, is that you have to have a cut-off point and unless everything post cut-off totally sucks, you're bound to leave off some of the artiste's best work. That's why this album doesn't even pretend to call itself "Best of", "Greatest" etc; firstly because such an album title already exists for Tom Petty and secondly, this album very appropriately calls itself "Anthology" for that's what it is: a chronological representation of what Tom Petty has done up to a point in time.

What's the solution? Either wait for "Anthology Part 2" or like me, get this brilliant album and get the whole albums after this. You won't be doing justice to yourself being satisfied with only 2 or 3 tracks from "Wildflowers" anyway as that brilliant album is already a rock classic in the making and you really need to hear the whole album to appreciate just how good it is.

As for this album, the 34 tracks that are on 2 discs are very well selected and you even get the hard to find duet with Stevie Nicks, "Stop Dragging My Heart Around" here too. The sound quality of this remastered album is also very good seeing as how especially on disc one, the state of the old original masters cannot have been very good and you can only improve upon the master which is also why the sound quality on the later tracks on disc two sound a lot better.

The one downer seems to be the cardboard packaging that opens out into 3 folds with a booklet pasted on the second fold. It seems to me that they could have come up with a better quality design for such a great compilation and thankfully the old adage, "you can't judge a book by it's cover" certainly holds true here.

It's funny how labels find ways to repackage a band's music long after they've departed for another company, and that's exactly what we have here. Petty left MCA for Warner, leaving the concise and almost perfect "Greatest Hits" collection as his final release. Then, they opened up the vaults and released a massive 6-CD set, "Playback," which had 3 CD's of hits and favorites, plus another 3 CD's of B-sides, live cuts, and rarities. Now, they've come out with this 2-CD set that's something of a compromise between the two.
It collects most of the stuff from "Greatest Hits" (except for the nice but unessential cover of "Something In The Air"), and adds on another 17 songs. Petty's made enough great enough music to fit a comprehensive and definitive two disc collection, and this comes close to being that. There are plenty of welcome additions, mostly songs that, while lesser-known, stand as some of his best work: "A Woman In Love," "Rebels," "Best of Everything," "Straight Into Darkness," "Jammin' Me," and "It'll All Work Out" are included, and such solid albums as "Hard Promises," the really good but underrated "Southern Accents," and "Let Me Up" (which was completely overlooked in the "Greatest Hits" CD) finally get decent representation.
However, there are a few great songs that were missed ("Louisiana Rain," his first great ballad, should be here), and what's a bit more bothersome is the inclusion of a few lesser songs that, while aren't bad, don't really sustain the high standard set by those classic singles.

The Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Anothology is a long overdue double CD of hits and standout tracks up to 1990, with one new track.
This compilation effectively expands on the "single CD" greatest hits which left off "Jammin' Me", "Waiting For Tonight", "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around", etc. which are all included here. It is also more accessible than the massive 6 CD "Playback" Box set. The songs all sound great and most stand up real well today and that includes the overplayed hits like "Free Fallin" and "Refugee".
My only 2 complaints are, that it would have been great if it covered their entire recording career up to 2000 and including such albums as "Wallflowers" and "Echo", but due to record company restraints, this is impossible now. Then, where are great songs like "Out in The Cold" and the holiday favorite "Its Christmas All Over Again". Those would have been icing on the cake, had they been included here.
If you are looking for a nice 30+ tracks of Tom & friends highlights this is it, the booklet isn't much, but the music really shines through. Highly Recommended.
