Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers - Greatest Hits
|Status:||ITEM WILL SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Greatest Hits, was originally released back in 1993 but this is the first time it's become available on vinyl. This 2 record set celebrates the band's legendary four decades of music, highlighting 18 singles like "Free Fallin", "Won't Back Down", "American Girl" and “Mary Jane’s Last Dance".
He's sold millions of albums, filled arenas, and hobnobbed with George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison, but Tom Petty's driving heartland rock has often been taken for granted by the same critics who hail John Mellencamp as a genius. Greatest Hits is an airtight argument for Petty's own greatness. Starting with "American Girl," the rollicking, Byrds-inspired single from Petty's first album in 1976, this compilation presents a chronological overview of the guitarist-vocalist's career with and without the Heartbreakers. Every one of the 16 older tracks is a well-crafted gem, full of solid guitar hooks ("Here Comes My Girl"), arresting images ("Don't Come Around Here No More") and simple but poetic lyrics ("The Waiting").
Heavyweight double vinyl produced by Geffen Records in 2016. Gatefold sleeve.
